Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

How do you use the camera recorder on Canon powershot s31s camera? I would like to know how to record, save and then download short "movies" on the camera.


Answers :

Just to the right of the viewfinder is a silver button with a red dot in the centre. This will start / stop recording. Set the camera dial to Auto, press the red dot button, and your recording will start. When ready, connect the camera to your computer with a USB cable and the movies will download at the end of the still pictures. \015\012
\015\012You might find recording suddenly stops after a while - this is because of a size limit for movie files. You can get over this by changing the resolution that the camera records at. It's quite complicated so I suggest checking the user manual or downloading it from the Canon webiste to choose what quality if resolution to use.

I want to know how to synchronize two Casio Exilim HS EX-FS10RD cameras together for stereo photography. I know Canon powershot cameras can do this with some softwear downloads but I really would like to use the High Speed feature on this Casio model.

I just bought this camera at a yard sale. It did not come with a disk. The model number is ST15R-VP. Serial number is 000-008-1141. I would like to know what type of camera it is and how I can get a disk to download pics to my computer from camera. Can I use this camera at another store like wal-mart photo center to make copies?


If it has a "Super Disc" drive, it will use regular 3 1/4" dicks or Super disks. The regular will hold about 15 pics and the superdisks will hold up to 75. The superdisks will need a special drive unit installed into the PC. ... VuPoint Digital Cameras

Hey I have a problem with my fujifilm finepix jv100 camera.
