I have a Panasonic DMC-ZS7 camera and I want to download videos to my Apple I-Mac. This work great for photos to I-Photo but the computer does not recognize videos at all.

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.


I think this has to do with the video format and/or version of Quicktime being used in the camera vs the PC.I have no clue on a mac but I experienced similar on certain Win-dohs OS's some time ago.I'm not sure it's a defect so much as a c ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera

Hi, I am in Rwanda trying to do a photo workshop with some kids. I was given a Sony Cybershot S750 to work with (in addition to my own cameras), but the owner does not have the driver on her computer and I cannot find a driver for this computer for MAC. I have a Powerbook Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. I really need to be able to download pictures to this camera and it's hard to believe that I can't find the proper driver so that my MAC will recognize it. I really would appreciate some help.

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)


A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels ... Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera
