Thread: Footage longer in camera than when transferred to computer!

    Default Footage longer in camera than when transferred to computer!

    Hi!
    I hope someone can help me with this. I filmed my churches' service this morning and on my camera (zoom q3hd) the footage is 54 min but when I transfer it unto my computer it is 5 min shorter. How could this be and what can I do about it? To be clear, in the camera I can see the whole service but in my computer the ending is missing. I've tried two ways of transferring and on two different computers but still the same. It shoots in mov.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    I'm not familiar with the camera, but a glance at the menu suggests it's posible to extract the audio/video via the USB socket. have you tried this? Alternatively, if that's the way you're doing it, have you tried removing the SD card and copying it from that?

    Another quick goodle suggests that the SD card might be formatted in sch a way that there's a maximum file size < 1 hour. It may be you actually have two files on teh SD card and the Zoom is stitching them together, whereas you'll need to copy both to a coputer and stitch them together in an editor. It may well be that the bundled "Handy Share" software will do this for you.
