I used to carry my camera everywhere I went, incase I see something which I wanna capture in a picture. Well I did take out my camera one day to remove a shot, but unfortunately, any button I press just keeps alternating between shooting and display mode. I cannot do anything with the camera now. So even if I click to take a picture, it just moves into display mode and the snap is obviously not taken..
Has anyone ever seen this problem..? My camera is still under warranty, but I do not have the receipt for it, since it was given to me as a gift. Can I still claim under the warranty period..

You need to buy a TV card which comes with audio /video composite sockets. these are female RCA or phono sockets which are also found on your camera.TV cards come with their own software to be able to capture pictures from your Hi 8 Camcorder using the av cables like the ones you use from your DVD to your TV set. There are other cards which carry the av sockets and come with video capture software. These cards are usually PCI cards which are fitted into your PCI slot in your PC motherboard. One other software that comes with such a card is Pinnacle Studio. Its called the Pinnacle AV/DV pci capture card. The one I use is just a DC 10 which works with Studios version 8. Please try any of these cards for your video capture
To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:
The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.
The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.
These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.
First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.
Exposures in low light require the shutter to be open for a long time. If this is longer than about a thirtieth of a second, you will not be able to hold the camera still enough by hand to avoid blurring the shot.
The solution is to use a tripod or another method of holding the camera very still, such as pressing it against a table or railing while taking the picture.In the film camera days there were many accessories for this purpose, and they still work with digital cameras. Some people used to carry a bean bag to set the camera on for long exposures. It's less bulky than a tripod ands allows some adjustment to camera angle when using a tabletop to hold the camera still.
The memory card can only handle still pictures and in some model low quality email clips can be recorded.
For video capture the latest camcorders are providing high speed USB 2 transfer.But for older models you need to get it done with the help of firewire card.
If you want to capture your video you can either buy a firewire card(can easily purchased from computer accessory shops,low cost) and plugin to pci slot of your PC,else if you have a DV port you can connect to that with a dv cable (which can be purchased from all camera stores).The camcorder is provided with a 1394 port to which you can connect the cable from firewire card.
All the best my friend.
Once you are ready with these you can use any of the video editing programs(even you might have got a freeware from JVC) with that you can capture in full DVD quality to PC.
The camera is not megabytes (MB) but megapixel (MP), there is a big difference. If you multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution then that will be how many megapixels are being captured. So in this case, max resolution 2048 x 1536 = 3145728 which is 3.1 MP effective. I don't think any camera actually captures exactly the full MP listed on the camera.
Now, if each pixel was represented by a byte then you would have 3.1 MegaByte picture captured. However, each pixel is represented by I think 3 bytes which would give you a 9.3 Megabyte picture captured. However, since this is usually to large for most users to deal with, compression is introduced thus the settings for fine and standard.
The tiff picture type is the 9.3 Megabyte photo with no compression. For most of us this isn't very effective for working with so we use the jpg compression. This reduces the picture to a more manageable size for saving, manipulation and storing. Keep in mind that this is what is called a 'lossy' compression which means that it actually removes pixels from the photograph and uses a technique called interpolation to bring the pixels back later.
