Re: can you do video on this camera
The z10 definetly does video-if i remeber right either hit the f button on camera or it's in the menusit is difficult to find but it is there-keep going through menus or modes or maybe it's even in the scenes sections-don't give up

1)Press the left arrow key (which is located to the left of 'SET' button at the back of camera). It has clock pictogramm near it. 2)Use left/right arrow key to select square pictogramm to set drive mode to single shooting. 3)Press SET button to confirm your choice.
while the video is playing, you can increase the volume by pressing the
button above the Func. Set center button and decrease the volume by
pressing the button below the Func. Set button. Think we both
accidentally turned the volume all the way down.
Too bad you can't tell this by going to the volume menu! Would have been
nice to know I was still recording audio while shooting video. Hope
Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a camera that takes the picture as soon as you push the shutter button. The least expensive option for this is one of the digital SLR's. Nikon sells the D40 for around $400. This would take the picture as soon as you push the button, and you could take about three per second also. Then you could just download the pictures and find the one you liked. To get the single frames from a video will require you to use a special software.
1. Press the Func/Set button
2. Use the up or down arrows to select the Drive mode (normally a single square)
3. Use the left or right arrows to select the clock/10 icon (10 sec delay)
4. Press the Func/Set button again
To cancel, follow the same instructions but select the single shot mode (single square) at step 3
I recently had the same frustrating problem. The top of the camera has a little black button that can change from continuous mode or single picture mode. It has to be on single picture mode to change the flash setting. After this is changed you can press the flash setting onthe dial and change the setting. I hope it works for you.
It is not operator error. I had a similar experience and spent days pulling my hair out trying to figure out the problem.
Unfortunately, the 5400HS is NOT compatible with the 7D. Only to 3600HS(D) and 5600HS(D) are.
The problem stems from the fact that the digital cameras cannot to TTL (real-time) flash metering and have to rely on pre-flash instead.
Because of this, Minolta updated the control protocol to include a signal to tell the flash to pre-flash. Unfortunately, only the two newer flashes recognise and respond to this new signal.
I spent weeks trying various things to get around this, but with no joy. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your 5400HS just will not work properly with the 7D either wirelessly or when attached to the camera.
As far as I can tell, and yes the documentation is skimpy, when you press the 'record/play' button the video recording pauses. Make sure you press the video icon button, not the 'record/play' button to get it started again. If you press the 'record/play' button, it goes into a 'play back' mode.
There are a couple of different things that could help this situation.
First, try deleting photos and videos and other files that might be occupying space on the card.
Secondly, look at the quality (in Movie mode, hit menu and select the quality button). Change it up and down, see what happens.
Thirdly, if you still have the problem, go back to your computer, right click on the card, and see how much space total, and how much free space it shows. If it shows most of the card is free, try taking the movie again. If that doesn't work, try a different card or use the same card in a different camera.
Power on your camera.
Press the playback button (bottom left with right arrow in a box) to display a picture.
Press the Menu button (top left) to get to the playback menu.
Scroll down to the Delete selection and press OK.
This will show another screen with a choice for Erase all images. Choose this and press OK. - done!
