Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Video longer than 30 seconds?

When I use some memory cards, I can take only 30 second videos. When I use others, I can take longer videos. Why is that? Can I change something to always take longer videos?

    This isn't true. I figured it out. It depends on the size you shoot whether 640x or whatever.

Only the card size. The bigger the card the the bigger the file. your manual should tell you how many images or video length you can get on a given size of card.

Can you explain what 10 second video clips at 30 frames per second mean?


It means that the video will last 10 seconds. 30 frames/sec is the quality of the video. It is the number of individual pictures take per second. Example: 10 frames/sec produces a jerky video but is sometimes used for security monitoring. On some cameras you can reduce the frames/sec to get a longer running time.

I cannot record a video for longer than a few seconds what is the problem?


The camera has only 45MB internal memory. So it can take video only for a short time. You need to use extra SD cards to take longer videos.

Not free video


Check your battery.
Check the remaining space left on the memory card or in memory.
Since the kind of camera is not mentioned, it may be some other problem here.
Depending on the kind of camera, it can be that the camera will not allow more than what you are taking.
Some digital cameras have a limit of only 40 seconds. Some have a much longer limit. Some cameras are limited only by the amount of memory remaining on the memory card or stick.

This is likely to be the particular memory card you are using.

 

some GENUINE olympus memory cards will only record short snipets of video in MPEG4 mode.

 

I believe a memory card with model like M-512Mb has this fault.

 

Check the Olympus website.
