Question about Nikon COOLPIX 5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't rotate video

I shot a video with the camera rotated to get a better picture. When viewing the video, I can't figure out how to rotate the video so we can view the video with everybody in the video right side up.

I know how to rotate individual pictures, but an entire video? Help!

You really can't rotate a video. When was the last time you saw a movie or a TV show in portrait mode instead of landscape mode?

You may be able to use a video editing program to do this. You're certainly not going to do this in your camera.

Read error appears after downloading pictures and looking back in the camera, some pictures have read error


When you hook your camera to your computer you are accessing it like a disk and changes made to "files" are saved to the disk. A common change is to rotate the image so it views correctly on the computer screen for images you turned the camera to take a portrait oriantation shot. That change is saved to the image on disk, then the camera can no longer display it because it is not the right "dimensions" for the camera (it is rotated)

Viewing pictures on camera


When you rotated pictures you changed picture size and definition, that is the reason why camera does not display them again.
If you check file size, you will see that rotated pictures are smaller than regular ones.
There is no way to get picture to original definition once you reduce it, however if you use a program like Photoshop you can check size and definition on original pictures, and re-rotate and resize rotated pictures to send them back to the camera, quality will be poorer than originals. Attributes to check are length and width (preferably in pixels) and definition, then you save pictures as best quality.

Hello,

If you have an exceptional amount of pictures on your camera...This could be a simple problem solver? You need to remove some or all your of your pictures from your camera to create more memory and storage.

You have a couple of options

Save all your pictures to memory card, from the memory card save to your computer in a file or to a USB Flash Drive (Cruzer), or on a CD/DVD disk.

Or, install a new Memory card that has more Storage Capabilities.

You need to check your setting as to how the pictures are viewed and stored, it's possible you have your camera set to auto rotate and also auto set format...change these settings to manual!

Kind regards!

That's because you used the computer's operating system to change the orientation of the info on the card. Now the camera doesn't recognize the original info. From now on, download the pics to the computer first before you try to rotate them.

Well, if nothing else, you've learned a valuable lesson. Always shoot videos horizontally. There are some expensive editing programs that can rotate the video but with severe loss of quality.

Screen reads "image too large"


Once you manipulate the pictures on your computer, they usually won't show properly on your camera when you transfer them back.

File Error now shows in camera for rotated photos from PC.


The camera will not display photos that have been edited by something else. Rotating counts as editing. Just opening a photo and then saving it without doing anything else counts as editing.

Held my Pentax Optio S12 vertically when I shot a video


I used DVDVideoSoft Free Studio. It's a free program that rotated my video 90 degrees, and I can now view the video without laying on my side to view it properly ... LOL.
