Of course.

It's a digital camera designed to take pictures. You get low resolution for videos taken from that camera.

The camera's LCD screen is small, so the videos look great.

Small screen = Low video resolution - perfect match.

    Further explanation to resolution :

    Digital cameras like yours will take videos and save them for example at a maximum of 320x200 (the normal TV resolution).

    Now you have a nice LCD monitor for your computer which is capable of displaying high resolution capacity of 1280x1024.

    If you play the video at full screen (which means that the 320x200 video will be stretched to fill the whole 1280x1024 screen), the result will be very UGLY.

    Note: there is nothing wrong with your equipments.

How about different videos do they have the same resolution? If yes the problem here is not with the video from the camera it can be the resolution of your computer , because if the video card of your computer is not high and the resolution is also not that high video will not look sharp when play to the computer compare when play directly from the camera...

Hope that helps.........

Video no longer transferable to PC


One of the most important things for transfering files from a camera to a computer is the software installed on the computer. Perhaps you did forget you installed this when your camera was new. The software came with the camera.
Try reinstalling the software that came with you camera, or us an external memory card reader. You don't need extra software to transfer the file from the card to your computer, but you still need software to play the video. You also could try to install a free video player like gom player. There are more free players. There are so many different video formats, so chose one that can play lots of different video formats, if you don't have the Sony CD or DVD.

I PUT MY USB IN AND DOWNLOADED SONGS ONTO THE FOLDER BUT I HAVE NA IDEA HOW TO GO TO THE MUSIC FOLDER ON MY CAMERA!!! I MEAN ON THE CAMERA HOW TO GET TO THE MUSIC FOLDER ON THE CAMERA, WHERE IS THE MUSIC...


Your camera will use a pre defined directory to store pictures and videos, it will use this same directory to display pictures and play back videos. You cannot change this directory. What you can try and do is add the music to the same directory where your photos and videos are and hope that when you browse through your pictures and videos on the camera that it has a codec capable of decoding your audio files. For the most part at the moment you simply transferred the files onto the memory of the camera, this does not necessarily mean that the camera will be capable of playing those files back. What you can do however, is hook the camera up to another device that is capable of playing the files (like another PC) and transfer your files onto it and play them back there. There is no guarantee that your camera will be able to play back your music files that you have transferred. You will have to find out what file types the camera supports for playback and convert your music files to that if possible (which it may not be).

Un able to transfer video to laptop


Hey! I am not sure what camera you are using, but I know that usually camera videos are HD videos in MOD, AVCHD M2ts, etc formats. Therefore, if you wan to play your camera video on your PC, you need to turn these HD videos to common video fomart, if you are using windows media player, you can convert them to WMV or AVI format. I personally use this Wondershare HD Video Converter which helps me convert camera video into other videos for payback on PC or some other portable media players such iPod, iPhone etc. You can have free try of this HD Video Converter at it's official web.
Hope that helps.

Nikon s51 can't transfer video from camera to comptuer


Try removing the memory card and insert it into a USB card reader and connect it to the computer to read/copy the images/video files.
You should format your memory card using the camera functions before you take the next lot of pictures and videos.

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera


Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

I'm fairly sure this camera takes a CF card from what I have read... I would use an external CF card reader and move my information back and forth this way -- just like files to a disk drive. I would however make sure I used the same filename and picture size resolution when moving files back to the camera. It may/may not work depending on how the camera treats the files.

Playing a video on your PC should be as simple as copying the files from the camera to your HD and playing them. You may have to download a particular CODEC for your media player -- but that is all there is to it!

Hello, You spoke about burning a DVD. Have you tried connecting directly your M1's TV out (yellow jack) to your TV set? If the quality level is same in direct connection using the MS as original carrier as with the DVD then "ite missa est", otherwise there is an issue with the DVD burning like reencoding of mpeg4 into mpeg2, maybe some quality parameters to tweek in a remote menu....
