Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?
I have to shoot a video within a fast-approaching time frame HOW
\015 I've misplaced the darn Manual for my POWERSHOT S3 IS so no idea how to video except press the video button. I'd rather be prepared because this may be only a once p/yr. opportunity. I've not videod before but done photog. I have to shoot BUGS . BUGS DANCING. Yes. So they're smaller than recording a mountain or a person etc.! I probably don't need to use my Macro-Macro feature but will have to get approx. 8-12 inches from subject. Can I keep the camera steady? or a tripod? Do I have to provide auxiliary lighting although can film in daylight. I have to ah-hem, also record my voice singing, because they won't dance unless I sing and it has to be the right song. So, does video automatically sound-record? Is it possible to instruct me for this? Just a basic step-by-step approach? I'd appreciate it!\015
Turn the selection knob on the top of your camera to an icon that sorta looks like a video camera on a tripod, then push the record button to record.Video mode autonatically records sound. You might want to add auxilliary kighting if shooting indoors.

Are you sure you have not recorded the video in time-lapse mode? Could be worth checking. Once in the Video setting, you can use the thumb ring to change video mode - one of these modes is normal and one is time lapse (there are five or six others). ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).
Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

I have a canon powershot SD200 digital elph camera. The metal piece on the back of the camera which moves the camera between functions (view photos to shoot video to take photo) no longer works properly all the time. Also, the clicker wheel that moves through different menu options or moves through photos being viewed doesn't always work. Are these problems repairable, and if so, where/how/at what approximate cost?

Batteries I have a Gateway DC-M40 camera. The batteries drain very fast and the situation keeps on getting worse. Yesterday I loaded a fresh set of batteries & they drained to 25% within hours & I had not taken a single picture & the camera was OFF all trhe time.

My g9 was playing video clips very fast. i changed the setting back to "standard" and can record/play new videos correctly; however, the video clip that i previously recorded before i changed the setting back to standard still plays back fast and that is the video i need. any suggestions?
