Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera

2 Answers

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera has a maximum video resolution of 640x480. Has anyone hacked the firmware so that the video resolution can be increased to 1280x720 or higher? And how to do this? Additionally, a related issue to video recording is the time limitation of 10 minutes being unlocked?

Both are not possible. They're both due to hardware limitations. Video resolution is limited to the amount of data the camera can continually process, video shooting time is limited to prevent overheating. You have a digital stills camera which can shoot some video within fixed limitations, really aimed at shooting short low-res video suitable for sites like YouTube. If the H50 had greater video capability built-in, then Sony would not have left it untapped as the camera market is highly competitive.

If you want a camera which has a greater video capability then your only fix is to buy a different camera. many current digital stills cameras are now fully video capable at high resolution, but the prices of such models shows a huge hike. Look at the nearly doubled price between the Panasonic G1 and the GH1 for example, virtually the same camera but the GH1 has full HD video.

Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but you now have a clear explanation why you cannot do as you wish and know what your options are if you wish to shoot HD video. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you (bearing in mind that I am not responsible for the hardware limitations of your camera) and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

You would need to send it to a Sony service center for disassembly and cleaning. This could be very expensive.

I have a sony syber shot dsc - H50 i don't know how to get the cam in "manual focus" mode. I want to shoot 1 cm far images.


One problem with most point&shoot cameras is that they are designed to be pointed and shot. The camera takes care of things automatically, including focus.

The H50 doesn't have a manual focus mode. The best you can do for close-ups is to switch to one of the Macro modes. Press left on the control button (marked with a blooming flower) repeatedly to select the desired mode. See page 18 in your manual for full details.

I would not recomend you to do that. There are a lot of little parts that once are missplaced, the camera will not work. Take the camera to a local electronist or Sony dealer for this kind of repairs, it's much safer.
