The "static" still image is a default jpeg written to the SD card by the camera (at low resolution) which should be a still of the first frame of the video capture. There should also be a .mov file which is the video itself. How you find it will depend on how you connect the TZ3 up to the PC, presume by cable or is the SD card put into a card reader?
In any event when viewing the files on the PC from the drive which is the Camera device , look for .mov files and the still image file should have the same file name as the mov. eg.
P00000001.jpg (still of the first frame of video) aswell as P00000001.mov (the video itself).

Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?
First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.
Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.
If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.
Windows XP? Are you using windows movie maker (WMM) to import them? I begin by copying the ".mod" files to my computer off the flash card which I insert into my printer. THe software Canon provides is useless. Next I change the file extension to ".MPG". Next open WMM, import video file, but when it starts doing so choose cancel. I don't know why that is. If you let it continue the import it seems to lock up. It will then let you drag and drop that video clip onto a movie.
To transfer your video to your pc please do the following:
1. Make sure that you have installed the software that came with your camera. If not insert the supplied cd in your dvd drive. When the dialog box appears select Easy Installation and follow the instructions.
2. Close your camera's LCD monitor.
3. Connect the usb connector to the camera and the pc.
4. Open the LCD monitor and from the menu select Backup.
5. Click all volume and click Next and then Start.
When you connect the camera to your computer using the USB cable, wait for few seconds for the computer to recognize the new member.. Now check under "My computer" ... You will have a new drive letter that represents your camera.
Double click on the camera drive letter and open it up as you normally do with other drives .. You can copy the images or videos from the drive to your computers desktop.
Let me know if that was helpful and Do not forget to rate the solution as "Fixya" :)
All the best for your Presentation.
Unfortunately youtube has the nasty habit of compressing images, as well as MP4. Depending on the program you are using you might be able to increase the quality of the MP4 when you save it (MP4 compresses video into a smaller size by sacrificing pixel quality). However youtube does the same thing. The shorter (and smaller filesize) a video is, usually the less it gets compressed.
Try using DivX and save as an AVI if you have that option available. The better quality the video file the better a chance you'll have at uploading it to youtube.
the computer might not automatically upload the file. it will detect the hardware, but not necessarily start uploading. if you have xp, try going into movie maker which is in your program list in the start menu. on the left hand side there is a few blue sentences, one is import video, another is import video from device. if you have your camera connected to the computer through firewire and have your camera on the vcr/playback mode, open movie maker and click import video from device, the computer will have already detected your camera, so the first option your given in the next screen should have the make and model of your camera to upload from.
I don't think it will be possible to import moving image (live video). I have got a digital camera and all of those pin cables, but the result is nothing. The only one way (at least I suppose that) to do what you want is to have a web cam. Those cams are specialized devices to import moving image to computers.
