I've been taking the 2GB chip from my ZR 600 and downloading it right into my computer. I can't believe how poor the quality of the video image is. Is that what you get for the money or can I get a better video image?
Low resolution on memory card recording, regardless of the storage capacity of the card is just the way it is. If you consult the zr600 users manual (p. 82 of my edition - PUB.DIM-734/1205Ni15.1, c2006) you can find that video recording to the memory card is limited to resolutions of either 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixels. These resolutions are pretty poor - disappointingly so seeing that one of the old computer monitor standards used to be 640 x 480 and that 1024 x 768 is common today. I was disappointed too.

OK, when you say quality is poor, how are you judging this quality ? EG, are you hooking it up to a decent TV and watching it back, or are you pulling it to your PC via firewire and watching it there ? If via firewire on a PC, you may be experiencing interlacing issues which make it look worse. In low light conditions I know the stuff I take looks a lot worse, it may just be that. Just step outside and take a quick clip as a comparison.
Look for a Canon log file and it will state what has not been loaded.Sometimes another program will lock a registry key that it is tring to access and you have to manually check it as not read only.
you do have to be the administrator to achieve this
Why not try a movie downloader to help you? With movie downloader, you can download movie in three ways:
Method one: Type name of the movie you want to the search box of Video Download Studio. It will help you to search your movie from thousands of movie & video websites. The search result comes from more than 100 countries and the areas. If you want to search movies in other languages, for instance, Chinese, German or Japanese, you only need to type the movie’s corresponding name and then you can obtain many search results.
Method two: If you already have the URL of that movie, then you could just copy the URL and click on the “add URL” button, Video Download Studio will download the movie for you with high quality in fast speed.
Method three: If the movie you want to download is playing on the web site, then you could click” auto capture”. Video Download Studio designs with the latest technology; it will automatically detect and download the movie for you. Click to get a free version from the official site: http://www.downloadvideos-convert.com/download-videos-music
In the settings for video type check what you have picked cause well if its mpeg1 it will be pretty poor and big where as you can prob set it to divx or xvid and select a higher compression rate, all really depends on the qaulity of the video you first captured before shoving it into ulead
you could try adobe premier elements, just a trial to see if it helps then you will know if its ulead. http://www.adobe.com/products/premiereel/?promoid=121DJGSC_P_US_FP2_PRE_MN&tt=P_US_FP2_PRE_MN
or when captureing it from your cam check and make sure its set to mpeg2 (dvd format) capture means that there will be vvery little conversion to do to dvd.
perhaps its memory problem in your computer, caused by one of these: - low RAM (use higher RAM) - too much applications in start up (close unnecessary applications) - too high quality setting in image mixer movie capture setting (set at normal or low quality)
or you could try to use option "EZ Video CD" for easy & quick VCD creation in image mixer, but it gives you lower movie quality
Things to try. I don't promise solutions. Check your Monitor. Reading the description lead me to think of a tube display rather than a chip. Otherwise order a head cleaning tape and give it a rotation.
I have found that you almost have to download your pictures directly from the camera with the SD chip still in it. Don't know why you can't take the chip out, like with other media. As I recall, the manual says to download from your camera. Sorry.
The CCD Image Sensor is defective. I have one just like it. The CCD is the chip at the other end of the camera lens that "sees" the image. This model uses a CCD manufactured by Sony that is used in Sony models such as DCR-TRV250 and CCD-TRV138. Canon also uses this Sony CCD int their mini-dv models such as the ZR-60 and other ZR series models. Sony and Canon readily "own up" to this and if you go on their websites you will see that they will fix them for free. They even pay the postage both ways. We were on the phone today with Samsung and they deny any knowledge of the problem and want $150 for repair if I mail it to them. They also will sell me the part for $103! I wish you luck but it might take a class action suit to get them to do anything. I'd love to hear what Samsung tells you... Mike
