I have a Sony DCR-SR43 handycam. I am a amateur photographer. When i shoot some shots, the file size is very large (208 or so..). Is there any software to compress the file.


The size of the file depends mostly on the resolution. Higher resolution gives more detail and the picture can be printed larger without showing pixelation, but this requires more data, so the files are larger. Recent cameras offer resolutions stated in terms of 10 or 14 megapixels. That much data needs a large file to store it. Reducing the resolution in the camera settings to 5 or 3 megapixels (or less) will give you a much smaller file. In the camera, this will usually be specified in terms of pixels wide by pixels deep (e.g. 1600x1200).

You can reduce the size of a picture in a photo editing program (resize or resample), which will also reduce the resolution.

Compressing the file is not likely to help much. Usually these files are in a format (.jpg) that is already compressed. The camera may allow more than one quality of compression. You can set this to compress the pics more, but this will reduce the quality of the image and introduce more digital noise. It is also possible to increase the amount of compression when saving an edited file in a photo editor, by specifying this at the point of saving. None of these will make as large a difference as reducing the resolution by resizing.

Why are the photos taken with my handycam not much clear..??plz help me..like photos are more essential for me than video recording..plz plz do give m a solution


This camera has a resolution of 640x480 pixels. This is less than most modern cellphones and the images are not suited for enlargement. If you want higher quality in photos, look for a digital still camera.

It wont take pictures


Determine how the camcorder works. There are 3 basic modes of capturing stills with a camcorder. Read your instruction manual for specific information.
  • Step 2 Understand freeze-frame stills. The most common and least effective method is a "photo mode." Basically, the camcorder will simply freeze a frame of video for a few seconds, which can then be extracted later as a still.
  • Step 3 Use editing software to capture stills. This method is similar to the first, and can be done with any camcorder. Download an editing program or use the camcorder's bundled software. Then transfer the video over to your computer and use the software to pull out stills.
  • Step 4 Understand built-in digital cameras. This is a more expensive option, but results in higher quality photos. These cameras have built-in memory cards and function basically the same as a stand-alone digital camera. Refer to the manual to switch over to digital camera mode, then point and shoot. The photo quality is usually a bit lower than from a stand-alone camera.
  • Step 5 Compare specifications. Understand that specifications for high quality video don't necessarily translate to high quality stills. CCD determines the quality of video, while megapixels determine the quality of stills.
  • Step 6 Consider the value. Whether or not a combination digital camera and camcorder is best for you depends on how you'll be sharing your photos

    Acessing Still Photos off finalized disk


    A DVD player may not recognise JPEG, but will recognise MPEG, which is why the DC210 has the Photomovie facility to convert the still photos from JPEG to MPEG, but you can still get to see your still photos on your PC, because they are on the disc.

    Here's how you do it.

    The disc has two folders - VIDEO_TS for videos and Photomovie and DCIM for the still images. Inside DCIM there is a folder called 101CANON. Open this folder to see the still images - they all have .jpg file extensions.
    It may be quicker to copy the 101CANON folder to your PC, and open the copied file on your PC.

    Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

    Sd card


    It can capture still images to SD or MM card.
    SD or MMC removable memory card. Depending on the compression and the selected resolution, the camcorder can record 220-880 JPEG images on a 32MB memory card or 45-190 on 8MB of memory.

    Low quality image from 2GB chip


    Low resolution on memory card recording, regardless of the storage capacity of the card is just the way it is. If you consult the zr600 users manual (p. 82 of my edition - PUB.DIM-734/1205Ni15.1, c2006) you can find that video recording to the memory card is limited to resolutions of either 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixels. These resolutions are pretty poor - disappointingly so seeing that one of the old computer monitor standards used to be 640 x 480 and that 1024 x 768 is common today. I was disappointed too.

    Tape compatibility question.


    Yes. Hi8 camcorders are manufactured to work with 8mm or Hi8 tapes. The difference is the quality of the tape. 8mm tapes will provide about 270 lines of resolution where a Hi8 tape will provide up to 400. For better quality recordings, you'll want to use Hi8 tapes.

    When should I use a DVD-R / DVD-RAM / DVD-RW?


    Write Once – After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC DVD drives Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video can be stored on a single of a disc. Re-writeable – DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM in standard home DVD players is fairly low. DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.
