Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

I am using my zr100 as a webcam for streaming live videos. It works great except after a few minutes or random pictures show up on the screen. I am assuming this is some kind of screensaver. Does anyone know how to disable this?

SOURCE: How can I disable the power saver feature on my

The power saver feature is enabled in the menu commands, if it has one. You have to select it out in the menu, and then turn it off- it's a software feature, not a manual one. Refer to your manual, and look for "Power Settings", or if you don't have the manual, run it by a camera shop or Best Buy, and they can find the setting. My Sanyo doesn't have this feature- I just checked it, and I couldn't find anything on the net about your Canon.
If you haven't had this problem before, or didn't need to disable it, perhaps it's normal for the camera, or you could be having a battery problem, and it's shutting down to save power.
Make sure the battery and camera battery terminals are clean (use a qtip and alcohol), and make sure it's fully charged.
I'm leaning toword the fact that the power saving is probably normal for 5 or 10 minute intervals of no activity, but less than that might be a different problem.
Anyway, good luck, and hope this helps.

Top 7 iPad apps for watching video


Do you have some problem when watching videos on iPad? No worries, I've got a round top 7 best iPad apps for watching video, to help you watch your favorite televisions shows and movies to the utmost.

Netflix App - Top 1 video watching iPad apps
Netflix is probably the coolest iPad apps for watching videos and TV shows. The official Netflix app is free, and allows regular Netflix subscribers to manage their DVD and streaming queues. It allows you to stream the same shows and movies available online.

ABC App - Top 2 video watching iPad apps
The ABC player is the next best iPad apps for watching video. The app is easy to navigate either by show, or in the super-convenient calendar view and the video quality is crystal clear. We tried it out and this video watching iPad apps looks great and works well, at least over WiFi.

YouTube App - Top 3 video watching iPad apps
The iPad's built-in YouTube App for iPad is largely a scaled up and bigger-screen version of the iPhone app, and it works exactly like you would expect YouTube to work. Searching for videos is simple, and the interface is easy to use via touch screen.

Air Video App - Top 4 video watching iPad apps
Air Video enables you to stream video (converting it on-the-fly, if necessary) from your Mac or PC. The main limitation of this iPad apps is that it's free version only shows a few items(randomly selected) from each folder or playlist.

Hulu App - Top 5 video watching iPad apps
Hulu doesn't yet offer its own app, although one is rumored to be in the works for Hulu's long-rumored subscription service. Once this hits, we think the iPad will truly have access to most of the TV and movie content that people want to watch on a daily basis.

Ustream App - Top 6 video watching iPad apps
Ustream is another popular service for watching live videos on the iPad. The company plans to bring its Ustream Viewer app to the iPad, offering functionality similar to its existing iPhone application. Users will be able to browse live streams and then interact with them via Ustream's chat and social stream features.

Flixster App - Top 7 video watching iPad apps
Flixster shows you movie times at your local theaters and lets you buy tickets. It also shows ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and lets you play trailers for upcoming films. Sometimes it can be annoying, like when it pops up an advert for a film that you have to dismiss before you can use the app.

Note: iPad does not support HD video, if you want to watch HD video on your new iPad, you need to convert video to iPad with some video converter.

Camcorder will not show picture records only


CANON relied on Sony to install their CCD (The image sensor) on most of their mini camera recorders. The mount for this CCD Component is defective. Canon recognizes this and currently, (2009) offers a 100% free replacement of this part.

The effect of the malfuctioning CCD is as you describe, everything works except there is no image captured.

I took mine in and they repaired it, no questions asked, except that I may want a few other things fixed up while they were there. I declined the additional work and it didn't cost me a cent.

Find Canons website and they have a deeler locator there where you can find an authorized repair center.

New to digital cams


so far the FE serie doesnt support "live streaming".
the other thing ... USB doesnt regard or power up the device.
it will just drain the battery out.
the only way to use it as a cam would me to plug in a USB2RCA adaptor AND a video card with a RCATV-in connector (not TV-out)
then again, you would still have the interface and bracket showing at all time.

i own a FE-500 and find it to be one of the bigess backdraw.
no "webcam mode" and not using the USB for power when uploading picture/video or display to RCA.

i do not know all about the FE serie but the specs mention
Webcam : no

Just my 2 cents.
