Down loading footage on to a computer

When I`ve shot some film, I find that when I plug the video camera into my

computer (or two other different computers that i have tried) I cannot get the footage to down load on to computer for editing, I`ve put the tape into other video cameras then it has down loaded perfectly so I assume my computer is ok. When I was considering buying a video camera I was told to make sure it had video in and video out which I think my video has, but when I read the operating manual it has no instructions how to do what I want?

Can you please help?

I have just taken shot some video footage with my OLYMPUS FE-320/Xbut when I play it back on my computer there is NO SOUND RECORDING just a "hissing/background" noise? Is it my camera or is it me?


To isolate the problem, you should try to play the video on the camera. If the sound is heard from the cameras speaker, you have to assume the film does have sound. So when you try to play it on the computer, and you don't hear a thing, a bad driver or a bad sound card or just a problem with the playback software could be the cause of this.

My DCR-SR33 has no USB port?


See page 35 of your manual. This camcorder can play recorded images and video footage to a TV using the supplied cables. The same cable can plug into an AV/USB convertor enabling the digital recording of what you have recorded to your computer.

I've taken many photos so far with my Canon T70 but have no idea how many and when to stop.. i'm not counting the number of photos i've taken, haven't heard any beeping and don't know...


The maximum number of shots possible is 24 or 36 depending on the film length, although sometimes you can squeeze an extra one out of a film. If the film loaded correctly you will get a frame counter in the LCD. If the film did not load correctly, then you have not taken any photos as the film is still in the canister and unexposed.

Take the camera to a totally dark room (and I do mean absolutely pitch black) and open the camera. if you can feel the film canister and just the short leader then it didn't load and you can turn on the lights and try loading again. if there is just the canister and no film sticking out, then the film has rewound and you can turn the lights on and send the film for developing to see if the camera worked. If you feel film going from the canister right across to the take-up spool, then your film is still being used and you should close the back of the camera before turning on the lights again. The latter does not necessarily mean that your camera is OK though as it should be showing frame numbers, but it may be usable still. If after a few more shots the camera is still behaving just the same then it's got a fault.

A faulty t70 is really not worth repairing. It's complex, spares are mostly unavailable, and they are almost worthless even in perfect condition. Any of the earlier non-t-series Canon FD-mount bodies are far better and a lot more fixable. They are also usually near worthless and can be picked up free or very cheaply, but as they have less to go wrong and were designed with repairs in mind then many common faults can be fixed.

I want to download film onto my laptop from my Panasonic NV-GS50 and don't have the driver **** to load onto my computer. where can i get the software??


You are in luck! You do not need a driver for this camera to transfer video over the firewire port into your computer. All you need is the appropriate cable and some video editing software. The software can be as simple as Windows Movie Maker (if you are on a PC) or iMovie (if you are on a Mac). Plug your camera into the firewire cable, turn it on and put it in playback mode, then start your video software. Then there should be an option or menu entry labeled "import footage from camera" or "import" or "transfer from camera" or similar, depending on what software you are using.
Good luck and happy video editing!

Canon hv30 is't being recognized on my vista computer


You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera


You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

How Do I Edit the Film?


Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution
