Re: taking still photos

This is a service issue involving the replacement of the zoom operation assembly which contains several buttons and functions manufactured with a preformed flexible printed board all connected together. Canon fixes this for about $130.00 total. You can find service info at Good luck, magic seadog

"Format error" memory stick PRO DUO

Try photo recovery software to rescue the lost photos and movies, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to your Sony memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Taking pictures

Many of these digital video cameras are not very good for taking still photos. They are optimized for taking moving video pictures. There are many technical reasons for this.

If you want to take still photos, you will find that even a low cost digital still camera will be much better than most any of the video cameras.

Likewise, if you try to take moving pictures with a still camera that gives the movie option, you will find that it will not do as good as a dedicated video camera for the application. This is why manufactures go to the trouble to make both types of cameras.

If your video camera has a flash option for photos and it does not work for still pictures, consult the user guide about how to set this up. If it is properly set up, and it still does not work, then there is probably a fault in the logic control for the flash unit. This will then require factory level service.

Extracting photos from a video recorded with sony dv hc22e camcorder

Yes, various softwares like the ones that usually come with the camera, or others like Pinnacle (cheap and functional) can let you see the video frame by frame and capture or save a frame separately as a photo - try right clicking on the frame you want. Of course programs like Adobe Premier are excellent for this too but very pricey. Unfortunately, if the snaps are part of the video, they will be low res and email quality only under normal circumstances. It may be printable up to 4x6 maximum usually (but a bit choppy). For the best results, switch the camera to photo mode and shoot to the memory card for the cameras best quality results. Or use a still camera. You can always do both or use the software to add photos to your video edits. Hope this helps...

A properly functioning camcorder will report this if it has both a card for recording and a tape mechanism for recording, with a switch set "in card position" when you press the movie mode record button. If you have a camcorder like this, look for a button marked "photo" that is used specifically for snapping still photos.
