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.

I have strange digital image file size problems. For example, if I upload a 6 mb file to my photo sharing website (Google Picasa) at the highest resolution, it will indicate that it is only 1.8 mb. After...


Hey Tom; this always hurts my brain, but here goes. Your image file is 6mb. That's the easy part. When it is saved in the .jpg format, it is "compressed" in order to store more images on a memory card or hard drive or CD etc. . Otherwise the sheer size of digital images would only allow a few on a memory card before it was full. Your 1.8 mb file size is the compressed size. When you open the file it is uncompressed to its proper dimensions. The amount of compression is usually chosen to optimize its use. For instance Picasa has to store so many images, it may compress them more than another application. Each time you open, make any changes, and re-save the same image, a small amount of data is lost or destroyed (that may explain why they open up to 5mb in Photopaint). The less compression used, the more "true" the image remains. Most cameras compress the images to about 1/4 their expanded size. That's how a 1gb memory card can hold hundreds of 6mp images, when it could only hold about 170 if they were uncompressed. I hope that helps a little.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
Compatible cards
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)
“The card” (P.60)
Number of storable still pictures and recording length of movies
Still pictures
Movie
• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.

Image Quality decrease


Um ok. first off, chill with the images being described in inches. The DSC-S40 is way too simple to get lost with. You only have 2 options to play with. One is the resolution which you want to be as high as possible unless you have some special reason for it not to be. Two is you have 2 image quality settings to choose from(Fine and Standard). choose "fine" of course for best results. yes the files size will be a bit larger, but you get the best possible image. Remeber, this is considered a cheap camera, so you want the most it can offer.

Now about the file size anomalies. Dont worry about it. Here is the only conclusion I can come up with that sounds logical. .JPG and most "compressed" image types will never be the same size if taken from a camera unless the same exact picture is shot 2 times in a row very fast witout the camera moving. files size on a compressed image depends on the amount of color variations the camera has to render into a file. The more color variations, the more data the .JPG file contains. It is natural for file sizes from a camera to differ. If you set your camera at 4M and take a picture, and then you set it to 3M and try to take the same picture again thinking it will save space, in theory this is true, but remeber how "compressed" images are rendered. You may have had only the slightest difference of light change on the next pitcture you took . This can have a significant impact on the file size, and can result in a lower res image being bigger in file size than the higher res image. Now, if you are talking a huge difference like 3M@1500kb yet 4M gives you 500kb, then you either have it set to "standard" quality, or you are really lost in this stuff.

But anyway, I hope this is plenty of info. And makes plenty of sense to anyone who understands compressed images.
