Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have had a Canon Optura Xi video camera since 2005. I like the camera except for one thing. Sometimes it records bars from previous recording over new footage. I have tried to clean it...no difference. Originally, I surmised it was a humidity problem, now I think it may be dust and grime. Any suggestions?

Perhaps you should read page 164 of the (English) manual.
When you use a "slow" memory card, on the right side of the screen a 5 bar indicator may appear, indication the buffer is running out of space. When the bar is "full" the recording will be stopped.
The slower the card the sooner the bar appears and the sooner the bar is full.
When you are using a fast card (C10 or U1) it takes longer, for the bar to appear. Or perhaps the bar won't come on at all.

My Canon PowerShot SD300 was recording sound perfectly a few days ago. Now whenever I record a video and play it back there is no sound except for static. I have resetted the settings to factory defaults...


When you play the video back and get no sound are you doing this on your camera or on the computer? I have the same camera, and noticed that when I playback something I've recorded I don't have sound either, mind you I don't have static either. But once I've uploaded the video onto my pc the sound is there.

It seems your recording head is dirty, i would advise running a cleaning tape through it regularly or have the camera cleaned and checked at a Canon service.

I believe the setting you changed set the RECORD method, not playback. The video is recorded that way. There are some Video software out there that can rerecord a video at a slower pace, but do you want to spend the money? Try Ulead.com for a low cost program.

PICTURES ARE PINK WITH HORIZONTAL LINES EXCEPT IN RECORDING MODE!


It's a known problem. Canon is stepping up and repairing them regardless of warranty state. There is an 800-number and an email link. See the Service Notice: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819

I have to shoot a video within a fast-approaching time frame HOW


Turn the selection knob on the top of your camera to an icon that sorta looks like a video camera on a tripod, then push the record button to record.Video mode autonatically records sound. You might want to add auxilliary kighting if shooting indoors.

Good Luck!

I have a canon ES 970 I was wondering, whether its possible to re use the cassette I have already recorded once on it and I have so many cassettes collected


You can record over previously used cassettes, but the recording quality may not be as good as with a fresh cassette. If you can find a bulk eraser, you can completely wipe out a previous recording and get near-new quality on your recording.

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue


This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.
