Question about Fuji FinePix A350 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera reading when you turn it on

When we turn on the camera it says it is on movie only even when you change the setting it only brings on the video camera, it is a A350, and by the way I got this second hand, and it is not new. it will take movie but no pictures, or will it display anything it only shows the camera to do videos. could you tell me what the prob is and maybe how to fix it?? when we got it it needed a new lcd so we put one in and did not mess with any of the other parts of the camera, did I do something wrong to make it only shoot movies?

Re: Camera reading when you turn it on

I guess that when you changed the LCD the flex strip cable to the switch on the back panel was disturbed. Try re-seating The flex strip in it's connector. Otherwise the switch itself may have sprung apart or be broken. Online auctions are a good source of spare parts!

I have a Canon PowerShot A590 - still pictures are very clear. I took videos several weeks ago and they were very clear, now videos are blurry

Did you change your camera video's settings? There is an option where you can set it to a lower definition, like for videos. To change, choose the camera setting "Video" Then, Press the Left Or Right Arrows.

Playback for movies on digital camera plats way too fast

I had the same problem. You have the recording setting on time lapse and there is no sound.
Set the recording on to standard by turning the round wheel at the back of your camera. I did not read the manual until I had this problem and I ended up making useless fast videos with no sound. Hope I am right?

No sound when recording video

Did you set up the camera to capture sound? This Camera has a Functions menu which is deep as the ocean, and standard movie capture does not also pick up sound. Additionally, if playing the movie back over an external device, use the A/V cable not USB, and get a High Capacity SD/MMC memory card if you want more than a few moments of video with sound. I would finally recommend an audio input device, as even when in Movie sound capture mode, the volume is never very loud.
Read the advanced manual completely.

Video sound

hi there
what the person means is when the camera is in movie mode use the menu button and scroll through the options until you see a mic symbol with movies next to it. it will say off so set it to on and fire away. the default setting is always off so you will have to do this every time

hope this helps

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

DSC-W55 movie camera video display problem

Your quality setting is probably set to the E-Mail quality. This makes the video low quality and tiny.

Just press the button that you use to delete pictures with the regular screen on and change the image quality.

This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).

And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.

If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.

Video to quick time

This makes no sense. Are you sure you are not inadvertently asking your download software to import it as BMP.

Btw, .BMP is a still photo (picture) format, not a video (movie) format.

Cannot Record Videos

I would try changing the memorised info that you put into your My1 settings and see if that helps. I just got my V700 today and the first thing I did was put my preferences into My1. I don't really know why your camera is transferring this to your video setting but try removing your presettings in My1.

Stupid camera

Either you have done something nasty to the camera when banging it or the camera is set at a higher megapixel resolution than you had it set at previously or the camera is saving photos to the internal memory, check the settings. You may have to re-format your memory card. PLease rate solution.
