How do I increase the recording time on a Nikon Coolpixl830?

I do not own this camera. I will use common sense. Taking moves need lots of memory and lots of power. If you have a nearly full memory card or a weak battery your recording time will be limited. Taking movies in any camera runs the DSP (inside the camera) hard and fast. This causes excess heat. If the camera gets too hot it will stop taking movies. It is memory, power and temperature.

First, you need to have an SD card installed; the 8025 will not record video to internal memory. Second, be aware that the 8025 will not record any sound to accompany the video.

Press the Home button to bring up the main menu. Select Movie Mode (movie camera icon). Press the shutter button to begin shooting. Press the shutter button to stop shooting and save the file.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Lost my manual! How do I record a video?

CHoose the menu or Dial the menu to someking MOVIE ICON usually like a box with 2 circle above it (represent the movie recorder icon). Then press the shutter to record and press it again to stop. Just make sure your camera's memory (either internal or external) is enough. For other setting like resolution and frame per second (FPS) you may change it on the Menu. The bigger number on FPS meaning the video become more smooth but it take a lot of memory.

Movie recording stops after 15 seconds. Memory card has been formatted and the screens shows a busy icon

I had the same problem except it stopped after 31 seconds and the card was not just said busy. I changed the card and the new card kept on recording fine. I eventually stopped the recording with the new card after 2 mins as i did not want to test for the full 43 mins.

Using video on camera and it stops after 7-13 seconds. I have a 2gb memory card in it and it says I have 53 minutes to record but still stops after seconds. what am I doing wrong?

This happens when card and camera are not communicating properly.
Buffer runs full and the recording stops.
Try formatting the card in the camera. Formatting will erase the card, so download movies and images to the computer before formatting.

I can't record more then 20 sec video file

I'm sorry to inform you but after researching your camera only records for 20 seconds. It has nothing to do with your card. Only 20 second blocks of time.

Movie mode - The total amount of recording time available is shown by the green "00:20" in the lower right hand corner. This is SHQ 640x480 resolution at 30fps, the maximum recording time is 20 seconds. In the lower quality 640x480 @ 15fps or 320x240 size, the recording time is limited only by space on your xD card. The shaking hand icon indicates that we have the image stabilizer turned on.

Camera stops recording video

When recording movies in the SHQ image quality mode, I am restricted to 15 seconds of recording time per movie. Why?
In SHQ mode, the FE-230 records movies with VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Recording this much data, this quickly, requires a large amount of camera memory and a very quick write time.
Olympus’ Type M+ and Type H xD-Picture Card media are high-speed cards and are able to process this volume of information with no loss in quality. Other commercially available media, including Type M and Standard type xD-Picture Card media, are not able to do so. For this reason, this model limits movie recording in SHQ mode to 15 seconds when using media other than Type M+ or Type H cards. The 15-second restriction guarantees that the camera will be able to process the data properly and produce a smooth, error-free movie during playback.
Keep in mind that there is no restriction on movie recording length, other than the capacity of the storage media, when recording in the HQ (320 x 240 pixels) mode.

I'm not sure if you are recording in SHQ or not. Try switching to HQ (press menu, then select image quality). It solved the problem for me. Btw I got the solution of the Olympus FAQ page on their website.
