Your camera can record HD movies, that's a lot of data; the chances are that your camera is complaining that your card is too slow. To check this out, select a lower resolution movie, i.e. 480p instead of 720p and try that. If it works fine, then speed is the problem. The manual should tell you what rating you need, but I'm guessing that it's going to be at least Class 6.

Look for a Menu then FPS (Frames per second) option.30 fps should solve your issue. sometimes in order to keep file size low the setting is slower causing this issue.Good Luck.

My nikon coolpix s4000 can't read the memory card. Why


Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Your problem carries all the hallmarks of "your card isn't fast enough". Check your manual to see what speed of card is required for HD video. If it doesn't say, try a card that says as least "Class 10" or "10Mb/s" or "66x". If you set the movie resolution down to 640x480 it has a better chance of working

Keep us updated.

I cannot record a video for longer than a few seconds what is the problem?


The camera has only 45MB internal memory. So it can take video only for a short time. You need to use extra SD cards to take longer videos.

I would recommend you to buy Canon PowerShot SX210IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 14x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD. Decidedly slim and sleekly refined, the PowerShot SX210 IS packs a feature set that reads like a wish list. The 14.1 Megapixel CCD joins a 14x 28mm Wide-Angle Zoom for imaging power to spare.

It also captures stunning HD movies with Dynamic mode for enhanced image stabilization when shooting movies using wide-angle settings. Capture smooth HD video (720p) with stereo sound for a truly natural, high-quality HD experience. The PowerShot SX210 IS not only goes wherever you do, but takes your photography and video to a whole new place, too.
