If you have a digital camera that takes videos as well as still pictures, here is one of the best digital camera tips that I found to be useful.
My camera has two buttons on the top and sometimes I, and my daughters in a few cases, accidentally took a video when trying to take a still picture. When we realized the situation we would continue the video until finished.
After transferring all the pictures from the camera to my computer the videos would just be black in Windows Photo Gallery or whatever program I tried to use.
When I tried to view them, with one program you could hear sound but you could not see a picture. In another program you could see a movie with no sound.
I finally found the correct program to use. All you have to do
is click on “Open With” then browse to the program called “Quick Time”.
Here is a cute little accidental video that was made while I was learning some important digital camera tips along the way.
The holidays are a great time for creating videos and sharing them with your friends and family. If you would like more help to learn how to format your camera to make the best videos, you should check out this product:
