The video camera function on our PowerShot SX100 IS has switched to a feature that seems to be designed for emailing video files. We get a "compact" text box when switching to video, and there's a little envelope icon in the upper right. The problem is that we're ending up now shooting videos that only show up in tiny form, where before we had higher quality, bigger (view wise) clips. Any idea how to switch that Compact feature back to Not Compact (full-size?)? Thanks!
