Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Movie trouble I haven't had my camera very long, it was a hand-me-down from my dad. So, this past week I took my first videos with it. All seems good on the LCD screen, but when I try and view it on my computer it is all distorted and blurry. The sounds is great the picture is just awful. Were my settings wrong? It is opening up in the newest version of Windows Media Player, am I missing some drivers for viewing? Thanks for any help~ Lisa

I am trying to down load video on dcr-pc101e pal tape to my mac. I have connected via usb but the mac does not seem to recognise the camera. How do I successfully download video to mac?


Use a firewire cable to connect your camera to your Mac. Have your camera at the place you want to start copying and put it in play back mode. Open iMovie in your Mac. In the iMovie window, move the little blue button to the left (to the camera icon). Then click the Import button at the bottom of your picture. If you haven't used iMovie before play around with it. It's a great movie editing program.
Good luck!

How to Save a Movie From a Panasonic NV-GS11 Video Camera to a PC


I bought my Panasonic NV-GS11 video camera from eBay and for the cost, it seemed perfect. I liked the feel of the camera, it's simplicity of use, until I tried to transfer my movie to a PC and that's when the trouble started!
Normally, when you connect a camera using the USB connection, your PC recognises the device and you can use it straight away. I had no end of problems getting the PC to do this and I thought the driver was at fault.
The answer, in hindsight, is that in the menu there are 2 items for the USB Function, "web camera" and "DV Studio" - the software for acquiring still photos from the camera. Choose "web camera", connect your camera to the PC via the USB connection and switch on the camera using the Playback mode. Check "My Computer" and there should be a video camera icon with "USB Video Device" beside it. Double click onto this icon will open up a page, where if you start your movie from the camera, you can see the results on the PC screen. Unfortunately, there's nowhere on this page where you can save the movie itself.
I searched with Google and found the answer. Many people had the same issue but there didn't seem to any answers. Eventually, I found one reply on a forum way down the page which provided the solution.
Download Windows Movie Maker from the Microsoft page. This is for Windows XP:-
http://www.download.com/Windows-Movie-Maker-Windows-XP-/3000-13631_4-10165075.html
Open Movie Maker and you will see " Capture from video device" This allows you to save your movie into a directory of your choice and later burn the movie onto a CD using your favourite software.

  • tap " Prtint Screen Key " on your keyboard
  • open MSPAINT and click edit and paste it

I have a Canon PowerShot A590 - still pictures are very clear. I took videos several weeks ago and they were very clear, now videos are blurry


Did you change your camera video's settings? There is an option where you can set it to a lower definition, like for videos. To change, choose the camera setting "Video" Then, Press the Left Or Right Arrows.

Fuzzy video with Jazz dvk141


the resolution of this camera is not very high, with only 3.1 megapixels. you can go to websites like fixmyvideo.com to improve the video, but to get better quality in future videos I would suggest buying a camera with more megapixels. 7 or 8 megapixels are relatively good and you can get a camera with that many for about $90.

Video & movie saving problems on a few users


Hi, It is possible that certain computer privileges are not allowed to you as a 2nd user and all are allowed in your dad's account (presumably as Administrator). With your dad's permission and agreement, set up your account also as an administrator. Hope this works for you and should you need further information, pls post again. Good luck and kind regards.

Unable to view videos on PC


Try playing with the different resolutions/fps for movie recording, maybe a different setting will work. Regarding playback on the computer - I use VLC media player, and when it can't open a video, I find that there's nothing else that can. It's one way to get an estimate on the question if the problem is in the camera or PC. If you want to use quicktime you'll have to get some codecs for it - DivX - XviD etc. I guess that the supplied Digimax Viewer should also be able to play the movies, it would seem strange if not, but who knows. Good luck
