Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera ?

Olympus stylus 790 will only record video for 10 seconds?

\015 I have had my olympus stylus 790 for over 6 months and have used the video feature many times.I have recorded up to 6-7 minutes at a time and now all of a sudden it won't record for more than 10 seconds.I have deleted all previous videos thinking maybe it would only record a certain number of minutes..no help. Can't find any solution in manual.It's probably just a button I've pushed by mistake but I am a beginner to this and can't find how to correct this issue.Las month I recorded a 7 minute video of a birthday party, downloaded it to my computer and deleted it from the camera. Now a timer shows up in bottom right corner with a 10 second countdown and then the video feature quits.Will only record 10 seconds of video at a time.Any suggestions???\015

Answers :

The duration of higher quality videos is reduced to 10secs. You can only record lower resolution video for a longer duration by changing the type from Super High Quality (SHQ) to either HQ or SQ. This can be done by turning the menu whell to the video option, pressing the menu button, choose Image quality and scroll to HQ and press menu again. You will now find you can record for longer.
I fixed my problem by pressing the reset button at the top of the camera. I did it with the memory card out in case it deleted my photos. It now works like it should, and as far as i can tell, it still maintained most of my camera settings. Again, mine is the stylus 730, so I don't know how similar your 790 is and if it has a reset button too. Hope that helps.

I have a Nikon S3000 digital camera in blue and i recently bought a Sandisk 8 gb card for it and before i had a 4 gb card, as well a Sandisk.
