Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I went to settings and activated "Format" when I had saved/memory of pics. and motion video. Now pics. and motion video files show empty. Are they somewhere I can't find them?

Answers :

OK well yes, when you format in reality, as long as you haven't used it straight after to copy something, you may well indeed be able to recover you files.\015\012Usually all the OS does to "Delete" a file is make it so it cannot be "Found" it does this usually by overwriting the First letter of the file name with a Non-printing character, say a $, &, or a % sign. All one has to do, with special software, is to find the files with those characters, and replace the first letter back to what it should be and you should have your files back.\015\012

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

The video camera function on our PowerShot SX100 IS has switched to a feature that seems to be designed for emailing video files. We get a "compact" text box when switching to video, and there's a little envelope icon in the upper right. The problem is that we're ending up now shooting videos that only show up in tiny form, where before we had higher quality, bigger (view wise) clips. Any idea how to switch that Compact feature back to Not Compact (full-size?)? Thanks!
