Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Movie shoot time and size of SD card

I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to take a non-stop movie for longer than one hour with a 8 GB SanDisc SDHC card (2). Currently the camera indicates that I can shoot a 24 minutes and 5 seconds 30 fps VGA (4:3) movie with the 8 GB SD card. Strangely, with a 2 GB Transcend SD card (150X), I was able to shoot a 23 minutes 3 seconds 30 fps VGA (4:3) movie. 6 GB more memory only gives me a 1 minute increase of shoot time. What's wrong? Model Number DMC-LX2. Serial Number EP7GA01641R.

HOW DO YOU EXTEND THE FILMING LENGHTH IN A fUJIFILM FINEPIX S3380 CAMERA


The S3380 is a still camera with limited video capabilities, not a true video camera. No matter how big the memory card, a single movie clip cannot exceed nine minutes.

This limitation is due to economics, not technical. In some countries video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. A still camera that cannot record for ten minutes is considered to be a still camera, not a movie camera, and is thus taxed at the lower rate.

How often do you see something in a movie lasting ten minutes, shot continuously from the same viewpoint with the same camera? Usually movies are made by splicing together shorter clips.

If you really need to be able to film longer clips, like a family member performing in a play or a concert, then you need a true video camera.

Camera turns off when I shoot a movie Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera


This is also a guessing game. Your experience in the use of the camera? If you are new, I suspect the settings may have something to do.
One simple method to prevent your camera from switching off (timed out) is to do some dummy manipulation on any of the buttons on the camera while shooting. eg. press the menu button or turn the wheel every few seconds to keep the camera awake. Make sure the button manipulation does not actually affect the recording of the movie.
OR re-set the camera settings to its defaults - (factory settings)

Movie shooting auto stops


Make sure your SD card is Class 10. If not slower card will cause camera to go in busy mode while recording videos.

When shooting a movie, the camera automatically stops recording after 5 seconds. about 2 seconds before it stops recording, something like a meter bar appears on the right of screen, and it jumps up from 1...


Most cameras require a card that writes data fast in order to keep up with shooting movies. If your card is slow, you might consider buying a faster (albeit more expensive) one.

I just bought a Vivitar ViviCam T027 camera. The manual says it will accept sd cards up to 32 gb. My question is, will this camera accept the newer sdhc cards, or only the standard sd cards?


Hi there

Funny, I recently bought the exact same model. The answer to your question is simple (that's the good news!)

A long time ago, when these small SD Cards first appeared, they were limited in capacity from 128 Megabytes (MB) to a maximum capacity of 2 Gigabytes (GB).

To enable the same size card to store a greater capacity, a new specification had to be created. This new spec. was SDHC, and allowed the cards to store from 4 GB up to 32 GB.

The confusion arises because people still refer to all these cards as 'SD cards' when the higher capacity cards should really be called 'SDHC' cards.

Your camera will accept standard SDHC cards. Just make sure you don't order 'mini' cards which are much smaller in dimension.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

When i shoot a video n play it......d sound doesn't play...its only the video that plays...n how can i extend d shooting time...as now i cn shoot only for a minute...


The Fuji A500 doesn't record sound only silent movies.

To get longer movies, insert an XD card with greater capacity. I'm not sure what the max size is but 1 GB is compatible.

Problem with memory card


Hi,
your camera can only read so many partitions
( File Allocation Tables )
( partitions are sections of the total volume )
Like slices of a cake.
which equals 4 GB, total.

so it will never be able to read more than this.

Like FAT32 on a Pc, will read 32GB
but you could have a 100GB hard drive in the machine, still reads 32GB only, so even on a PC 68GB would be wasted.

The file format on the camera can not change,

So you are stuck with 4GB max reading.

Hope this halps
Regards
Richard.

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.
