Disabling the Auto-Off Power Function on Canon Elura Camcorder in Record Mode

I Have a Canon Elura 65 digital video camcorder as a video input device for the Adobe Visual Communicator 3. I'm not recording onto the Mini DV tape...just using the image to record on my computer. I've noticed that the power down option occurs after a few minutes when I do not record to tape. I want to keep teh camera on so that it continues to send an image to the computer program. Is there a way to set the camera power to remain on or to disable the auto-off function?

    I am trying to do what you do. I have a JVC digital camcorder and I am using a USB connection, but I can't get the camcorder to "talk to" Adobe Visual Communicator. Can you give me any advice on what to do? Thank you!

Take the tape out. The Camera should stay on.

    That's genius, LostDesertRt!! I plugged in my AC power adapter instead of using battery power. I took the MiniDV tape out of my older camcorder, a Canon ZR200, and the "auto power off" message did not appear after 5 minutes of inactivity. The older Canon models have no option to disable the auto power off within the camera's menu settings. Thank you so much for this solution!

What a great service. It worked, and nothing else pointed to this simple solution as even an option. Thank you LostDesertRt!

I'm on my way to using it as desired.

Download movie to computer


I have an elura 65 and I believe this model does not let you download your movies onto the computer in full motion. you can only do it through quicktime or some other similar program using less frames. the higher models: elura 70 etc. are supposed to be capable of transferring full motion film. that's what I understood from the owners manual. hope this helps

Moving photos from pc to Elura 65 camcorder memory card


You can buy both internal and external USB card readers that can read just about any card you can think of in a package about 3" square. They are not expensive either.

Your local PC retailer will (read should) have these in stock.

Hope that helps

Record button doesn't function


You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
