Digital Cameras / Camcorders

A digital camera or digicam is a camera that encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction. Most cameras sold today are digital, and digital cameras are incorporated into many devices ranging from PDAs and mobile phones (called camera phones) to vehicles. Digital and film cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.  Digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

I used the PhotoShop slice tool to make 40 images from the 8X5 matrix, out of one image. I will use these images, side by side, and display them as puzzle pieces making up the one large image.

PhotoShop create GIF files. Why did it create GIF's?

I have made a few animated GIF's and understand that multiple image can fit into on GIF.

Curious why PhotoShop made this a GIF.

Thanks

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

I have the online manual, but can not read the buttons described in it.

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300023632/01/pssx620hs-cu-en.pdf

For example, page 74 seems to discuss deleting images. But look at the button in the manual. Even with reading glasses I can not identify the button on the phone.

Please explain how to delete all images but with clear simple instructions.

Thanks,

I have a Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder.

This camera will be used to record video outside for a few hours.

A good few people would like to watch this video footage live while it is being recorded.

Facebook Live seems to be a good streaming service for this task.

How would I stream this video footage through Facebook Live through use of my Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi
To test my media website, I'd like to use music video mp4's and mp3's. ( as many as possible)
Maybe film students keep them somewhere, to compare? They make tons. K-12 Schoolers?

I can't use No Doubt, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran, Kevin Federline  and Beastie Boys, New Kids, apparently.

Google only finds converters and streams. Aren't they more trouble than it's worth?

What would you say?

Thanks

I've been doing a lot of travelling and road tripping with the family and I always find it hard and time consuming to gather all photos from cameras and iphones into one comfortable experience in front of the television. It's usually a mess to import photos from camera, and my wife, me and daughter's iphone...they mess up the dates and mix up photos and videos. Then later on viewing on my television through AppleTV(gen4) is slow and not a good experience.

I'm using Mac and iphone and has a Sony camera and a Sony television and AppleTV (gen4).

I was thinking of a cloud service or piece of software where I can basically dump all photos and videos from all my devices and it will make sure to present it all nicely on my TV so we can all sit comfortable and enjoy our adventures :-)

In the Wi-Fi setting on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300, there is no option to connect to the Lumix Club to send images.   How do I connect it?

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 camera.   I want to have it automatically download images to my computer, which is on a domain.   There does not seem any way to change from WORKGROUP to DOMAIN.   How can I set it up to automatically download images to a shared folder on my computer?

Hi, at my work we need to install a camera outside, and have it project to a fixed indoor LCD or even a small TV. The reason we need it is to quickly and easily monitor when we have a pick up /  delivery truck waiting at our gate.

I asked our IT department to find us a solution and they installed an “IP camera” that we have to log in with our phone or computer to view. However it is very inconvenient because every time we hear a truck drive by we have to grab our cell phone and log into the app and wait 10-15 seconds for the connection to be made.  Or we have to go to a website on a computer, and only once we are on the website can we see the cameras video. But It defeats the purpose of the camera, since it takes so long. I would like to have a dedicated monitor to view the camera feed at all times. It does not have to have a recording function, we just need to be able to have it accessible  quickly and easily when we hear a truck drive by, to check if the truck is waiting for us or not.

So can anyone suggest a model that has an LCD that is maybe 20” or so? Or we could even  mount a 20” tv on the wall and have it so it is always showing the live feed.  But if someone can suggest a system it would be much appreciated.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for my question, but I'll start here...

I am looking for a software application that will allow me to view the video being shot through my DSLR camera. I have been using an application called - digiCamContol. Although it is free and I don't want to complain about software that is free, I would like to see if there are other applications that work in a slightly different manner.  

I produce video training tutorials for the vertical market and would like to control my cameras (I use two cameras) via my laptop and not on the cameras themselves.

If anyone can offer any advice where I can find a good DSLR Camera control software, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
Fulano

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

I have an SD card that I need to get the pictures off of.  Something seems to have happened to the disk and it is asking me if I want to format it...and that doing so will cause me to lose all data.  Any help?  I would really like access to the contents of that disk!!!

Part 1) I have tons of images from my research, where I have the same image in many different folders, often using the same filename. These do not involve a human face.


Part 2) I have lots of redundant photos of family and friends on disk and also imported into the "Photos" app on my MacBook.
None involve a human face.

I need a solution to help reduce redundant photos on my disk, since they are starting to clog my disk.

What options to I have?

If I used Picassa, does that only match like photos when there is a human face? Or is it pattern based, so I can use it to match on pictures of buildings also?

Is there an app I can use on the Mac, which I can keep private? I do not relish handing over 100% of my research and family photos to Big Brother in the Sky.

Thanks

I am looking for advice as to what software and camera(s) can be used to create an image on a PC screen of a chair (for example).
The image on the screen should be able to be rotated in real time by operation of a slider control or mouse as if the
 chair were on a turn-table and the turn-table was being rotated. The image would reveal a  view from every angle of rotation.
I imagine that a 3D camera would be needed and that a minimum of 3 "pictures" would need to be taken, the pictures then somehow would be "stitched" together and viewed with a viewer.
I am a Windows C++ application programmer with little or no experience and a very modest budget for this  kind of software, hardware or terminology and would appreciate some general information as to what Windows software or hardware is needed.
I am not seeking information on Game programming as such although I imagine there is some relevant information to be gained from that topic area.

An editor is using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 to edit my video but does not know how to se the default image for the video.

When he text message me the video, I see it displayed the first frame of the video, ad it looks fine. When I copy the video and past eo my desktop, it's another story.

It shows the image which was the first frame on the video a week ago. I told him there was a way to set the default image frame of the MP4.

Is that true? Can't I specify how the MP4 looks when sitting on my desktop?

And if so, ow is this done with Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017?

Thanks.

Hello all,

I might have already answered my own question but I am looking for community advice for any other cameras that I should consider.

I am looking for a compact camera that I can carry everywhere in lieu of having to lug around my DSLR and a few lenses.  

What prompted this quest was that I need to shoot video this summer and my Pentax K-3 isn't actually easy to use for video work (auto-focus is terrible and it isn't very suitable for long 1 hour shoots). I was going to purchase a video camera but then I thought... I don't want the bulk of a video camera nor do I want to own an essentially single-purpose camera. What about a compaq P&S? They can capture decent video these days, correct?

My requirements or wish list:
  • Ability to shoot decent 1080p video for at least 1 hour. "Decent" meaning reasonably acceptable quality.
  • Must be compact (like the Canon Powershot SX720 HS).
  • 40x zoom or better.
  • The highest zoom setting must be of good quality.
  • Option for full manual control of shutter and aperture.

So far, the best I could find is the Canon Powershot SX720 HS? Ideally, I would like the capability of a longer lens but I think that is the best I'll find for a compact P&S.

Thank you.

I can use Fuzzy Select to find the colored areas I want. How do I then add a dark order to that region?

Right now, it just twinkles to show it is active...so how do I transition to actually use that region?

Thanks

I would like to buy a selfie stick for my iPhone 6 if it let me take pictures in a different perspective, and not of myself.

Sometimes, I want to be a few feet taller.

Can it be used for this?

What is the longest one I could get?

Can it secure my phone safely?

Thanks

I would like the ability to come back that image and update any element which I add today. Does each event go in its own layer?

Or, is there another way to be able to edit, for example, a line? I may want to reduce the line width a month from now...

Thanks.

On the following advertisement, I see an item in the picture that does not appear in the list of items at the bottom of the page...

Any idea what it is?

See attached image...

ALSO, I have a question about the size of the memory card(s). I see this has two at 16GB each. I also see a refurbished camera with a single 64 GB card.

Can you give me some ice how fast a 16GB card would fit with this camera? Let's say, distant shots require me the max resolution and file size per pic.

How many would a 16BG card hold?

Thanks

I see how to use Gimp for Mac to draw a line, but it's to thick. I want 1 pixel.

I tried using the Brush editor with no luck.

What's the trick?

I have Gimp 2.8.22 (Mac)

On one image.

How do I do this? I assume a new Layer would be smart, but can not get this to work.

They are different heights and will need slight adjustments to dimensions.

This one does not work...

I do not see the second image...
