Movie sequence taken in portrait

Hi All I recently shot a movie clip in portrait mode (unintentionally) is there any way that this can be converted to landscape? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, even confirmation that I am asking the impossible! Many thanks Robert

My Powershot SX10IS will no longer take pictures. I don't know why.It turns on and the picture shows in the viewer, but when the button is pressed to take the picture nothing happens. There is a movie...

The movie camera icon means that you have put it into video mode. I don't know how you do or undo that on your camera, but on my Canon there is a slide sitch that selects still shots, video clips, or review pictures taken.

Photo shots: the pictures look as if a super flash wash used, even when flash is not used. Movies are o.k.

It is problem of ccd imager chip in DSC-T1 camera that gives you washed out still image after taking shot/ stored image, you may get live view correct in camera mode and movie but it saves taken still picture over bright etc.
Replace ccd imager chip by local camera repair shop to solve this issue.

Sony syber shot w130 10 min limit for movie clip


You can not remove the 10 minute limit.
The manual says that 10 minutes is the maximum time you can shoot continuosly.

You can make a longer movie if you break the shots up to less than 10 minutes each.

Hope this helps.

Samsung D75 digital camera. Having taken a clip in movie mode, I have a 'standby' message on the LCD screen. Can't seem to get rid of it to take another clip. When I press shutter button I just get a bleep...

Problem resolved. My own stupid operating fault. It appears that, in movie mode, you don't just press the shutter button to start a shot, you have to hold it down for a moment. Not made clear in user manual, but I should have twigged earlier.
Thanks for your contact/help.

Cybershot dsc-w50 records movies instead of pictures

I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.

Flash Problem

First step would be trying to reset all defaults, which I'd imagine is in the setup menu. Make sure you are also not in a mode which turns off the flash. For the 990 at least these are: The built-in flash will automatically be set to ?Off? when: ? you use autofocus with a setting of ?Infinity? ? you choose a multi-shot setting of Continuous, Multi-shot 16, VGA Sequence, or Ultra HS (an external flash can still be used with these settings) ? you choose a multi-shot setting of Movie ? you use best-shot selection (BSS) ? you use lens converter (LENS) settings ? the AE Lock option in the EXPOSURE OPTIONS sub-menu is on make sure your batteries are fresh and fully charged. if nothing works, consult a professional on repair, use an external flash, or use it just when the sun is out... Good luck!

Shooting modes

The Shooting modes are as follows: PROGRAM (P)/AUTO Modes Used for general photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. In PROGRAM (P) the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted. In AUTO mode you cannot use exposure compensation or panorama features. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape + Portrait Suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the landscape This setting allows for both the foreground subject and background landscape to be in focus. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Sports Suitable for capturing fast moving action without blurring. Even a fast moving object will appear to be stationary. Beach and Snow Suitable for taking photos at the beach or on snow covered mountains; situations where there would be vey bright conditions where the sun reflects off of sand or snow. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the Wide position and cannot be changed. Movie The movie mode enables you to take a Quicktime movie for either viewing on the LCD or on your computer. The movie will record as long as the shutter button is depressed and or until there is no storage space left on the memory in use. No sound is recorded.
