Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon memory card all of the sudden downgraded from 1G to hardly anything at all!?!

Just recently I noticed that my camera only will take ~1min 20 secs of video footage when before it would take clear up to an hour of footage being as though it is a 1G memory card. I can't figure anything in settings is off but I'm not too sure, I don't think I have the booklet or initial software either. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction!

Thanks,

Jason

There are a couple of different things that could help this situation.

First, try deleting photos and videos and other files that might be occupying space on the card.

Secondly, look at the quality (in Movie mode, hit menu and select the quality button). Change it up and down, see what happens.

Thirdly, if you still have the problem, go back to your computer, right click on the card, and see how much space total, and how much free space it shows. If it shows most of the card is free, try taking the movie again. If that doesn't work, try a different card or use the same card in a different camera.

Good luck!

I have a sentient cctv dvr from Maplin I can view it on my phone at home which is fine I wanted to know if I can view camera footage when I'm not at home etc. at work


Yes you can definitely view your CCTV footage on your mobile phone at your work via internet. Sentient CCTV DVR basically is a night vision camera. You must know the IP of the camera and IP Video server. Connecting your phone to CCTV camera via the protocol you can view the CCTV footage's in your phone. Night vision cameras are used for surveillance purpose. I would prefer cctv camera with ir illuminator for good image quality in the night time that will clear footage quality in my phone.
Recently many new applications have also being launched by security cameras with a view to solve problem you mentioned.

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. If you've tried running a cleaning tape through the camera with no success, the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera


Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.
