Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera ?

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera has a maximum video resolution of 640x480. Has anyone hacked the firmware so that the video resolution can be increased to 1280x720 or higher? And how to do this? Additionally, a related issue to video recording is the time limitation of 10 minutes being unlocked?


Answers :

Both are not possible. They're both due to hardware limitations. Video resolution is limited to the amount of data the camera can continually process, video shooting time is limited to prevent overheating. You have a digital stills camera which can shoot some video within fixed limitations, really aimed at shooting short low-res video suitable for sites like YouTube. If the H50 had greater video capability built-in, then Sony would not have left it untapped as the camera market is highly competitive.

If you want a camera which has a greater video capability then your only fix is to buy a different camera. many current digital stills cameras are now fully video capable at high resolution, but the prices of such models shows a huge hike. Look at the nearly doubled price between the Panasonic G1 and the GH1 for example, virtually the same camera but the GH1 has full HD video.

Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but you now have a clear explanation why you cannot do as you wish and know what your options are if you wish to shoot HD video. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you (bearing in mind that I am not responsible for the hardware limitations of your camera) and\015\012 any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

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!


Try putting the camera in video mode, then call up the menu and set the resolution to a larger sized image...that might get it corrected. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
