Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Movie mode playback, if filmed in portrait position can you rotate the movie after to view it the right way up?

I did some filming on my Fuji E550 but I held the camera in the portrait position for a better fit of what I was filming. When I loaded it onto my computer the movie is shown sideways, is there a way to turn it to the landscape position so I can view the movie the right way up?

The only way to see the movie the right way up is to turn your monitor on its side, I'm afraid. You also might be able to take it to a professional studio, who might possibly have the capability, but you will still wind up with a lot of blank space to the right and left of your image.

Can't rotate video

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.

Hi Sonali,

To record movie clips first of all press the menu button, this will refelect the shooting menu of your camera, select the first option of shooting modes by the navigating keys circling the menu/ok button. Then press the right arrow on the navigating keys, this will open the modes of shooting. Generaly while first use always AUTO is selected, you may scroll up to select the movie mode and then press ok button. Now you are ready to record clips. Click on the shutter button (picture button on the top of the camera) to start recording clips and when you are done re-click to stop recording.

I hope this will help ;-)>

What is the difference between the F1 & the F2 film simulation mode?

F1 simulation mode suppresses flaring in flash highlights when the flash is used and stresses smooth tonal transitions in the reproduction of skin tones. It is ideal for portrait studio work where the aim is professional standard negative (i.e. Pro Neg Film). F2 simulation mode provides vibrant reproduction of natural colors such as blue skies and is ideal for landscape and nature photography. Almost like shooting with slide film (i.e. Fuji chrome/ Velvia) Note: Color spaces needs to be set on sRGB and D-Range set to wide in order to use these modes. Color, Tone and Sharpness cannot be changes in any F simulation mode.
