Lizzie,

This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).

And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.

If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.


Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

How can I record a movie that has started already for a future date?


You have lots of options: Go to the station or movie carriers website and stream the video online, or use a DVR device to record it. Or as a last option, put your digital camera on a tripod in front of TV and record it and watch it later.

To use the movie-record button, your camera must be in the live view mode.
When you are using the viewfinder (DSLR mode) you only can shoot stills. in live view, you can shoot movies with the little red Movie-record button and shoot stills with the shutter release button.

I think your card is damaged. Try connecting to your computer and check available space. Take a backup and format it from your PC, check if it is formatting completely.

If the card is not Class 10 you will also have problem recording movie from a camera. You need a high speed card to record video.

The five-minute limit has nothing to do with the memory card or the video resolution. In some parts of the world video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. Cameras that can only record videos up to five minutes in length are not considered video cameras and thus are taxed at the lower rate.

When was the last time you saw a movie or TV scene that was five minutes long without any cuts or breaks? It doesn't happen often and very few people find the five-minute limit restrictive.

Video quality is a very subjective thing. The quality is better than that of almost all compact still and video cameras. It's not as good as professional-quality video cameras. Video has a different "feel" from film --- but which is better?

Since the recording length doesn't depend on the resolution, I'd suggest you always record at the largest resolution. Videos can always be shrunk in size --- they can't be expanded.

Is it possible to convert their old Video 8 movies to digital? If so, how do I do and what equipment do I need?


Hi. Yes, especially since it sounds as if you may still have your Video 8 camera, but if not then get one on eBay etc. - you could always sell it back when finished.

I think you may want to record the movies in another form, e.g. DVD, so they can be played more easily on PC or TV.

If so, a VCR or DVD recorder would still do the job but it would be best to play the movies with the Video 8 camera plugged into a DVD/Hard drive recorder. This would best allow editing before later saving onto DVD from the hard drive.

You could get video capture software to record the movies onto PC but I have not tried this and think it might prove more complicated.

That was caused be a "glitch" when the camera was writing to the disk. The reason you are unable to read it on your computer the video file was not closed down properly. This could have happened for two reasons I can think of.


  1. The first and most likely is that the disk its self had a defect on the surface. Anything from a fingerprint to a scratch or a defect in the manufacture. If what you are recording is important DO NOT use generic disks, you save pennies on the desk but risk losing what you shot.
  2. The other reason is that it might have been a onetime malfunction of the camera, you will only know this if it continues to happen with good quality disks.


The good news is that, Yes everything you recorded is still on your disk but it will take people with special talents and software to perform recovery. Look (local, or search the internet) for "Video data recovery service" Make sure that they do "VIDEO Recovery" Sorry I don't have one to recommend to you. I hope this helps you.
