Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a new Canon Powershot SD780IS. I took a movie with it, in multiple parts. The smaller segments will download from the camera to my PC very nicely, but the biggest (and most important) piece will not download, even though I can see it play in the camera. What to do???

Instead of downloading from the camera, try using a card reader to download it. The use of an inexpensive card reader is a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in this blog article link for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

Can i take movies with my canon powershot SD1100SI


Yes. Select the Movie mode (movie camera on tripod icon). Press the FUNC/SET button to select options, then press FUNC/SET again. Press the shutter release button to start recording, press the shutter button again to stop recording.

For full details, refer to the section "Movie Shooting" in the manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_sd_series/powershot_sd1100_is#BrochuresAndManuals

I had my camera taking a video with and I dropped it, It automatically turned off but the lens didn't go back in. Now whenever I try to turn it on it says lens error and shuts off


The camera will need to be sent in for repair. Because of the age, you would be better served if you bought a new camera. For under $ 250 you can get the SD780IS which is smaller in size, has more pixels resolution and Image Stabization and many additional features you camera does not have.

I have the same basic problem.


The camera sensor is bad. It can be replaced if you still have warranty. If its out of warranty, get a new camera - the cost to repair = cost of new camera.

I have the Canon PowerShot SD600 and took pictures and filmed movies on my camera. The pictures and small movies downloaded but the larger ones won't download. Suggestions?


I am having the same problem with my Powershot A560. I have transferred several smaller movies to my computer in the past, but I have a large one (230MB) that results in the camera disconnecting and giving an I/O error, even though I have used a couple different types of software to try to download this.

Movie Won't Transfer Over to My Computer


Well it took me over an hour to figure this one out. Loathingly I loaded the Canon software onto my computer. Then instead of using the card reader in my hard drive I used the USB cable that came with the camera. I downloaded the movie onto my hard drive through the USB cable and PRESTO, it played perfectly on my computer with no problem. Hope that helps.

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5


Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...
