Changing Movie Recording Pixels

Good day.

I am trying to reset my movie recording pixels to standard, as some how it accidentally got changed to compact. The manual says change to movie setting, hit Func set, the use up/down arrows to choose the pixel setting in the bottom left of the screen. Unfortunately, the up/down arrows won't move the curser down to the pixel setting. It only allows me to change the first 2 menu items. Why won't it let me move the curser down to the pixel number as the user guide shows?

Thanks,

Don McCall

    Like the original poster, I followed the manual, but the 'tab' to select the resolution is not selectable.

I phoned canon customer service. They said that you must turn the dial around the function set key. It will then change the movie mode from compact to standard ... and then you will be able to change the resolution. When I did it, the resolution went back to 640, which is the resolution on which I had it previously. Well before the compact mode issue.

How to increase pixels on my Canon SD1100IS


Press the FUNC/SET button. Use cursor-up/down to move to the lower-left corner. Use cursor-left/right to change the setting. The "L" setting gives you the most pixels (8 megapixels).

Full details are in the "Changing the Recording Pixels" section of the manual (page 68 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

To record video: Press Menu/OK, select Shooting Mode, select Movie, press Menu/OK.
Press the release button to start recording, press it again to stop.

For digital cameras it's recommended to use Ni-Mh batteries. Buy some with good capacity +2500 mAh or better.

I can't record more then 20 sec video file


I'm sorry to inform you but after researching your camera only records for 20 seconds. It has nothing to do with your card. Only 20 second blocks of time.


Movie mode - The total amount of recording time available is shown by the green "00:20" in the lower right hand corner. This is SHQ 640x480 resolution at 30fps, the maximum recording time is 20 seconds. In the lower quality 640x480 @ 15fps or 320x240 size, the recording time is limited only by space on your xD card. The shaking hand icon indicates that we have the image stabilizer turned on.

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

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

Camera stops recording video


When recording movies in the SHQ image quality mode, I am restricted to 15 seconds of recording time per movie. Why?
In SHQ mode, the FE-230 records movies with VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Recording this much data, this quickly, requires a large amount of camera memory and a very quick write time.
Olympus’ Type M+ and Type H xD-Picture Card media are high-speed cards and are able to process this volume of information with no loss in quality. Other commercially available media, including Type M and Standard type xD-Picture Card media, are not able to do so. For this reason, this model limits movie recording in SHQ mode to 15 seconds when using media other than Type M+ or Type H cards. The 15-second restriction guarantees that the camera will be able to process the data properly and produce a smooth, error-free movie during playback.
Keep in mind that there is no restriction on movie recording length, other than the capacity of the storage media, when recording in the HQ (320 x 240 pixels) mode.

I'm not sure if you are recording in SHQ or not. Try switching to HQ (press menu, then select image quality). It solved the problem for me. Btw I got the solution of the Olympus FAQ page on their website.

It has succeeded from A1's concepts, "Providing the more enhanced image quality," "Reducing the mis-recording," "Not limiting its users or scenes" and "Providing the unexpected satisfaction, pleasure and impression" from the DiMAGE A1. Compared with A1, it is the all-in-one type digital camera achieving not only the still image but the high quality of viewfinder and movie. - 2/3 type interlace scanning CCD with primary color filter and 8 million pixels - VGA-size with a high precision EVF (922,000 pixels) is loaded to check the focus more easily. Compared with A1's EVF, about four times the high precision display is enabled (A1: 235,000 pixels). - Depth-of-field preview - Movie recording function of 544x408 size with 30fps - USB 2.0 support (high speed mode) which can transmit large data in high speed - PictBridge support Furthermore, 3D AF to track the movement and keep focus on the subject and anti-shake compensation functions inherited from A1 are also loaded.
