Question about Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

Inverted Video Playback

Im very happy with everything about my SD870 IS, it takes really good pictures for a compact and has some top features. However, all video I take, including time lapse, is played inverted and flipped in Windows Media Player and Real Player on my pc having downloaded the files via the Canon software.

I've never had this problem, but I do not use the Canon software. When you plug your camera in to the USB port, try going to the videos through Windows Explorer. If you're not sure what I mean, here's how:

1. Plug your camera in
2. Go to "My Computer"

From there you should see your camera in the list. Double click it and find your video file. Copy and paste it to your desired location, and then try to open it.

I've recorded a few videos, and have never had this problem. If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll figure out something else.

Picture comes out blurry


There are three main reasons for blurry pictures.
Pictures may come out blurry if they're not focused properly. If some objects are sharp and others are not, this may indicate focusing on the wrong subject. This is usually not a major problem with compact point&shoot cameras since they have such a wide field of focus that almost everything will be in focus anyway.
Subject motion. If moving objects blur while stationary objects remain sharp then the shutter speed is too slow to freeze the motion. Try switching to the sports mode, and/or add more light.
Camera motion. This is the most common cause. Set your camera on a table or other stable surface and use the self-timer to take a picture. Take another one while holding the camera. Compare the two on your computer.

The laptop has a built in camera. My picture is inverted. How do I fix this problem


hi lilly, i am happy to assist you, just follow the steps.

To check the Webcam issue, go to http://www.cameroid.com/ and see if your picture is upside down.

If your picture is upside down, then that means that a setting for your webcam could be wrong. (You might find your webcam control software either under Control Panel, or in "All Programs" under the manufacturer's folder.) To fix this, launch your webacm configuration program and click Properties, look around the program [the option MAY be hidden in an ADVANCED tab,] and make sure that there isn't some option checked that says something like "flip video".

If your picture **ISN'T** upside down (from Cameroid.com,) then that means your camera is working properly, and that your VIDEO PLAYER is flipping the video on playback. Launch your video player, and click Properties. Look for a "Flip Video"-like entry and make sure it is turned off.

Canon PowerShot SD 870 IS Movie playback speed is too fast!


You've got it on Time Lapse video. Turn on, slide to video, press func. set button, toggle to standard instead of time lapse. Maybe next time try your owners manual. Of course you all are probably like my mom and just get a new camera, put in the batteries and start taking pictures. These stupid expensive cameras have too many options and get messed up too easily with the wrong press of the button. Try a simple cheap on next time.

Canon ixus 86015 playback problem


Hi

I think your model is the Ixus 860 IS (SD870 IS in North America) but it's no big deal really.

Sounds like you should probably just reset all the settings back to default and start over, you never know what you may have changed that you don't want changed.

Most likely all you did was decrease the time before the camera goes into power save mode and turns off the LCD to save battery power, but I think starting over is probably a good thing.

Good luck and hope you enjoy the camera: Darntoothysam com (digital camera parts and repair)

If your video looks good on a monitor then more then likely your ES3012-5MLZ30PW is good....I would try taking the video from that camera to a different input on the recoding device to see if the problem follows....If you don’t have a different input try a different camera and record for 5 min and then playback to see if dose the same thing.....You can also take the video feed from the ES3012-5MLZ30PW to a different recorder and see if the problem follows....good luck and let me know if this helps.....you can always call Pelco at 1-800-289-9100 they do their tech support 24/7 365.....they really set the standard in tech support....
