How can I take stills with VL-Z1

Just bought used VL-Z1, can I take stills w/o SD-card. Do I need to add a card (I see a slot at the bottom of camera). Can I still get 8MB card for this camera, how much Mpixels would I be getting, how about upload to XP machine, Is it still doable or even worthwhile? 2004 camera

Thanks

You need a memory card, you should be able to get the right one. You import just like you would footage. Hope that helps.

Dimage camera unable to use card


What type and size memory card are you trying to use? The Z1 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher capacity SDHC cards, even though they fit into the slot.

I bought 4GB SD card for minolta dimage Z1, but error comes UNABLE TO USE CARD....I read in the fourms that this camera does not support 4GB cards... right?


Your camera came out in 2003, before SDHC cards were invented. Chances are, the 4G card you're trying to use is not an SD but an SDHC card and won't work in your camera.

Does my laptop (Dell latitude d600) have a memory card slot and where is it?


If you are talking about a slot to Add RAM yes, there is.....there is a little panel on the bottom of the laptop that has a small screw you can remove and add memory.

If you are referring to a memory card READER (like a slot to read compact flash or camera SD cards) no, I don't believe a D600 has one of those.

HI there remove the mini tape and start recording. It will automatically save in memory card. If not then your camera does not have option to save video in Sd Card. Thanks.

What size sd card can i use in a dimage z1


You may use any size SD card. Bear in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB. Larger cards are actually SDHC cards and won't work in the Z1.

I need the part # that will allow me to connect my Sharp Viewcam Z VL-Z1 to my computer to download video. Please help.


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can usually be found on Amazon or eBay. Try a search on your camera model number. Most cameras need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

How do I use the mico sd card on this player?


I would recommend here:

http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2070070068+1053118914&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=68&Tpk=micro%20sd

It honestly doesn't matter what brand of micro SD you stick in your MP3 player, so I wouldn't worry too much. Micro SD's are much smaller, so no, you can't use a normal SD in a Micro slot. Most however do have an SD "shell" that you can stick your Micro into, and use just like a normal SD card. Also I know that MOST mp3 players allow you to add pictures, videos, etc, and having a Micro SD inside should allow you to add things directly onto it, so i dont see why you wouldnt be able to access the contents of the Micro from your MP3.

Hope this helps! :)
