Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera

S5IS-acquired video footage was off-loaded from the 4-G SD card onto a desktop HD to temporarily conserve space for more shooting. When replacing the video footage back into the camera so the camera could play the footage, the camera now says - "no image", yet the transferred footage can be played back in the desktop computer using WMP, as a default - no problem. What is going on? I need the camera to be able to playback the footage.

Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Hi I have a quick question. after I have been downloading my pictures from my camera to computer, I am not able to edit them or download them onto any websites. is this an error w/my camera or computer?


You did not state which computer or software you are using to edit your video, bu the general consensus is the raw footage has to be "unwrapped" from its compressed form (video gets compressed to fit on SD card) so that it can be editable with your software. Otherwise, editing the footage will be difficult. I use a Mac and FCP. My workflow is - after moving the files from my SD Card to my ext. hard drive, I batch load them into MPEG Streamclip (free software for PC and Mac). Then I choose Apple ProRes 422 (LT) to transcode my raw footage. After waiting for the process to finish (minutes to hours, depending on how many files you batch load), I import my files into FCP and everything works great. No more issues. Also, if you are working on a Mac, iMovie will accept your Rebel.mov files without issue. iMovie unwraps the footage with the Apple Intermediate Codec automatically and editing in iMovie is so simple that it makes me want to smack myself for not trying it sooner after editing on FCP for the last 10 years.......

I have recorded footage for a fashion show at high quality for a client. When i attempt to edit the footage on imovie on my mac the footage comes out very jittery. The footage is fine when played back...


Hard to say without seeing it and more details of the video coding of the files you recorded but I think you shot it interlaced and you are trying to edit/view progressive, or the field dominance is wrong.

Have a look here, this should sort it either way

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera


You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.


Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

I'm no expert, but I don't think you can do that with just the video camera alone. First you'd have to pass your video onto a computer using dv motion studio and then you can put that output file onto a sd card. I don't think it would be possible to play that video off the card on the camera. Hope that helps
