Thread: HD videos crystal clear, BUT frame jumps ??? on SX1 IS

  1. Default HD videos crystal clear, BUT frame jumps ??? on SX1 IS

    Hi all,

    I opened a thread for this below, but someone said I should open one here.

    http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=657502

    Just used my new SX1 IS, no complaints on the still shots at all. However when I played back the videos, they were crystal clear, BUT, when I was moving the camera, and zooming in and out there were sort of frame jumps on playback, these were very small, but they should not be there, its like moving the camera and suddenly stopping, and moving again and so on,

    The playback is fine on playback on camera and TV.

    I am on Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    As I have in total 1536 RAM, and 121GB free on the hard drive zoom browser is on, which is drive D, But not sure if my comp can handle any more memory.

    thought that would be enough to run an engine.

    Any advice would be great.

    I only just this minute remember me trying to play a DVD that had the same frame jumps in it, at the time I did not have a clue why they were there, now I know it must have been an HD DVD.

    Is there not any software out for this

    "The playback is fine on playback on camera and TV." So I take it you are having the problem with playback on computer? Even after reading that quite detailed breakdown of your computer setup I am still not certain as to what software you are using to playback your videos with. It sounds like the file format from your camera is some variety that your software cannot playback correctly. What is the file type?

    Itís called zoombrower from Canon, however it will not play on things like Windows Media Player, and itís in slow motion on that one.

    Canon says that HD films will play on at least a minimum of 2.6 processor, but mine is higher, but then someone said that my processor speed would be down, as of all the things that are running, internet, anti virus and so on, but still thought that the HD films would run.

    Any suggestions please.

    Yep itís a still camera, but 10.0mp and takes videos in HD film. There is nothing wrong at all with the video quality; itís just the small frame jumps that seem to be from my comp.

    Yea well - get a video cam if you want to take movies.

    The compression and video stream produced by stills cameras is usually uses some propietry mangled codec and problems are common.

    Your stills camera will not be producing decent video - it's a stills camera. If you want to make movies you should get a video camera - oh i think I said that.

    No such thing as ' best' - just what people say is best.

    You get what you pay for and for a grand there are many great cams but it all depnds on pers pref and what your expectaions are.

    Best for me is a s/h pro dv camera cos i like pro gear.

    Ignore magazine tests and sales people - it's all lies.

    Check out what people use here and ALWAYS try befor you buy. Assuming you plan to use it more than once a year the feel of a camera is important.

    I would advise you to go tape - best quality for price and easiest to edit. - others may diasgree.

    I'll disagree on the tape but not on the cameras, I came to the conclusion the video off still cameras is only aimed at computer viewing, with it's progressive video, were as you get interlaced on a proper video camera, maybe it will improve when they do 50P but then you will really need some grunty computers to get the best out of it, I find the best video player for HD is the Pixela Image Mixer 3se player, it does MTS files and would give you very clean playback on your spec computer if it could handle your video that is.
