Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S3 Pro Digital Camera ?

Recording and previewing

\015 For some reason my s3 is taking a little longer to record than it usually does and also to preview a picture that I just took, I have my camera set on preview so it will show it a second, now when I take a picture it stays on the screen until I hit the shutter button. Do you know why? Should I be worried. I photograph weddings.\015\012Thanks, Patty\015

JVC Hard Disk Camcorder (Everio) GZ-MG155U, after break in file management, came out of it showing no recorded material (I had 6 hours of material recorded on it at the time) and though the on-screen read-out claims the disk is empty (i.e. 7 hrs of ultra-fine record time available), trying to record results in error message "recording failure." Tried "CLEAN-UP" command without success; am reluctant to reformat drive until I can find out if my 6 hours of recorded material might be recoverable.

When shooting a movie, the camera automatically stops recording after 5 seconds. about 2 seconds before it stops recording, something like a meter bar appears on the right of screen, and it jumps up from 1 block to 4 blocks and stops recording. I can't record a movie for longer than 5 seconds!


Most cameras require a card that writes data fast in order to keep up with shooting movies. If your card is slow, you might consider buying a faster (albeit more expensive) one. ... Digital Cameras

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. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras
