640(Fine) is not available - Video Recording

I get this message: "640(Fine) is not available" when I set my camera on the video recording option. Seems to be a memory problem. What does this mean?

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

I have nikon D90 SLR. with 18-135mm lens , i want to record a video with it but a videos quality is really low .. should I change a setting or something else?


Press the menu button and go to the shooting menu (the little camera icon). Scroll down to "movie settings." there are three quality settings. Select the one you want then try a test shot. The higher quality setting (1280 X 720 pixels) uses more memory. The default setting is 640 x 424 pixels and the lowest quality setting which uses the least amount of memory is 320 x 216 pixels. Sound is off by default so if you want to record sound with your video, you need to turn the microphone on in this menu as well.

How can i increase video recording time of my Nokia 6303 i Classic. I have 2 GB memory card but it donot record videos longer than 1 minute?


this is the most irrelevant and misplaced option (for controlling the size of a video captures by the video camera) (honestly even though i had the same problem , and somehow i find the option,and solve it ,but i`m nearly 1 hour wondering for the same option for you to solve your problem)
i had the same situation ,but mine was worse , my camera captured only 5 sec (you don`t have any problem for approximately unlimited amount of time for your capturing, even if you`re just using your 2GB memory card ,still is more than you can imagine : but remember your nokia 6303i classic ,could use additional storage device,and act as a host for that kind of device : you can easily connect your flash memory (by choosing the right usb adapter )directly to your nokia device,and your mobile detect this memory as a host , and all you need to do , is to change your saving contents location (actually , i connect my (8G Flash + 16G integrated ram reader) mp3 player directly to the phone by USB ,and through the os of nokia , i can browse , play ,locate,and set as saving place)
HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION: the reason that your camera ,capturing time is limited in time , is for limit of the MMS (multimedia messages) ...
  • go to your video camera
  • in the option menu you will find setting/video clip length (set it to MAX AVAILABLE instead of for MMS messages)(its better to set your photo/video storage to memory card or other folder in case you have much more available memory and need to capture 2 days of recording)...
  • IMPORTANT NOTE : it may you wont see the option the first time you select camera ,,make sure you select video camera/setting ,and the option will be there

(additional setting related) so to correct this ,you must go to your messaging setting (who the **** think that the reason may be in there ) select MORE / Msg. settings / multimedia messages
and set the MMS creation mode free (or guided maybe works)instead of restricted
and the default timing ,is define limit in time,if the option restricted ,is selected

HELP ME : i`m killing myself to find a software solution ,for monitoring my video recording ,on my pc monitor ,(in case i want to record my self :while playin music ),and something that make n.6303i act like a web cam ,,,then i can use an application for video recording ,and synch my capture button with ,record audio from another port (for high quality studio sound )instead of her poor microphone ,,, as a matter of fact i did find a solution (named : mobiola screen capture for xxx(mobile models)
and it says ,that its supporting n.6303i ,,nevertheless the app for the device is in *.sys format ,and i never see (and nokia ovi suit say`s so :your mobile doesn`t support this type of ,,,,) is there anyone out there overcome with this problem before , the n.6303i get airial directly to the wall ?

Vidoe option on camera used to work, but now: 640(fine) is not available


Hi

I think to work on 640 fine you need a much higher memory stick, I use a 2gb in mine and it is fine (that is when the camera works) .You get 24 minutes or more on the 2gb stick and that is at 640 fine.

Can't turn on my camera!


Hi..

I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on hp.com:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=371583&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

NOTE
If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d

Memory


Ok, here's the deal...

The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the available space really fast. Keep in mind, that in high resolution video mode, as opposed to standard, you will eat up at least 64 in about 7 minutes, not 5.

I dropped a 512 MB SD card in the camcorder, and on high resolution video, you might get away with 45 minutes to and hour. The camcorder records in 640 by 480 resolution, which isn't bad, but certainly isn't in DVD quality either...

So, pick youself up a 2 GB SD card, and you will certainly get up to at least 5 hours in standard mode. Rule of thumb, 400 MB per hour in standard mode. But, if you also go into the camera mode and take high resolution photos, that will also eat up your available storage ability...

Any other questions, just let me know...

Hmmm, for recording videos you just have to go to the movie mode and press the button
Photographies doesn't seem proper because of all the black dots on the LCD screen, once on the computer, they're good.
And maybe you can't record videos cuz you don't have a memory stick and you're trying to record on 640 MP fine quality. For that you have to get more than 128 mb on your memory stick.

Which memory stick ?


Several of the Sony cameras require a high speed memory stick for 640 x 480 30fps movies. Here is a clipping from the Sony P150 specifications: "MPEG VX Fine with Audio (640 x 480 at 30fps), (MPEG VX Fine requires Memory Stick PRO media)"
