Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

How to acquire videos from camera?

I have a huge problem. I cannot acquire videos from my digital camera (Canon Powershot A550). I can only dowload images, but with Picasa2 or PhotoFiiltre (but it takes an hour), because the software doesn't work (ZoomBrowser EX/EOS Utility). The computer detects the camera, but I can't acquire images and videos directly from the disk. I've been looking on the internet for any other software for dowloading images/videos from camera, but I didn't find anything useful. So, the main problem is how to acquire videos from my digital camera and which software is similar to the one that Canon offers?

Thank you.

Very simple. you need to get an SD card reader from your local electronics store ( CC or Best buy). it's very simple. the memory card goes into the card reader and that ensemble plugs into any of the usb ports in your computer. once plugged in, the computer will recognize it as external memory, just like a flash/thumb drive and your comptuer can read the pictures off of the card without any interaction with the camera itself. you will be able to see both the picture and video files on the memory card. all you will need to do is copy the pictures or the videos, and paste them into any folder you wish. your computer should have no problem recognizing those files. and windows media player should not have a problem reading the video files either. with them on your computer you can just drag and drop them into any video editing software that you have. i have a canon sd750 and that's exactly what i do. works like a charm.

Can't dowload vedio clip from CANON PowerShot A550


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos, and especially the much larger video files. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Remote shooting on Canon PowerShot A550


The software that comes with the A630 is generic to the whole series of cameras with different capabilities. Some have this feature, and some, like the A500 - A600 series, do not. Do not feel bad though. Many of the cameras that do have this capacity cannot do the photo-stitch picture merging that your camera does.
