Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

Hello! I have a Power Shot SD400. I was wondering if there was any way to change the duration/length of the videos you record. On mine I am only allowed to record 1 minute at a time. Is there a way to make it record for longer? Thanks for all of your help!


Answers :

The camera will only shoot up to one minute in "Fast Frame Rate" mode. You should press the function button and use the left/right buttons to switch it to "Standard". This will allow you to shoot until the card is full.

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

I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute

I have just purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam Model 119450. It will take one photo of a moving subject, then only records at the time interval rate ie every 2 minutes or whatever interval is selected. The result is that I end up with hundreds of images taken every 2 minutes (or whatever time interval is selected) but with no images of the animals I am attempting to photograph.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops.
