Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S550 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (Graphite Black) with 5x Optical Zoom + 4GB Memory Ca ?
Picture off video
\015 I have a coolpix s550 and i would like to know how to make a picture off a video, or can i?\015
YES YOU CAN! i have done this myself. it requires software. most video editing programs can do this. photoshop can also be used: it is a little more advanced, but here goes...play the video on your computer at 100%( for best sharpness) pause the video where you want the capture. make sure the "F Lock" is off on your keyboard(to allow print screen to work). while holding down control "Ctrl", press print screen "PrtScn" on your keyboard. watch your curser--it should blink. if it doesnt blink, then the function keys are locked. NEXT open photoshop. I have CS3 so the sequence may vary slightly. Top left menu bar select "File" and scroll down and select "New". a window will open with a "Preset" that should show "Clipboard". Click OK and a blank doc will open. while holding Ctrl, click "V". Control V means paste. this should past the entire view of your monitor with the video paused. you will want to crop it down to your captured image. Hopefully you have a video editing program that will capture a still. I know Pinnacle will do it.

I was taking lots of scenery pictures this weekend and usually turn my camera on its side to get longer/narrower shots. Well, I decided to take a video and turned that on its side. When I dropped the pictures and video off on my computer it would let me rotate my pictures but not the video. Is there anyway to rotate a video so i don't have to lay on my side to watch it? Thanks.
Well, if nothing else, you've learned a valuable lesson. Always shoot videos horizontally. There are some expensive editing programs that can rotate the video but with severe loss of quality. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

This sounds like the software that initiates the video is amiss, and the camera can't initialize the video function. If so, the main board has to be replaced to fix it.\015\012However, just to check, make sure the battery contacts inside the ... Digital Cameras

Deleting Videos I have no issues with deleting pictures from my cards or internal memory, but I cannot seem to delete videos from one of my cards (2G SD)while using the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8. The videos do not even show on the camera at all, even in playback mode. For some reason, every time I transfer all my pictures to my PC, it tries to download all these stored videos too. Please help!

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help
Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a ca ... Digital Cameras

Data missing Just got home from a 3 month trip and found that there is a chunk of missing pictures and video from the memory stick I had in my Sony digital video camera (model # TRV 22). The strange part of this is that the missing photos/video are in the middle of the trip. I have 1600 pictures that were taken before and after this large chunk of data.
