Digital Camera with Software Developers Kit
Sun, 19 Mar 2023 19:56:42 +0000

Is a software camera a thing. A digital camera is a piece of hardware that takes pictures and stores the data of the picture on a memory card. A digital camera, in contrast to an analogue camera, which exposes film chemicals to light, employs digital optical components to measure the brightness and colour of light and turns it into pixel data.

Choppy Playback - Sony DCR-TRV120
Sat, 04 Mar 2023 19:17:34 +0000

This worked on my old Sony camcorder that was playing back an important recording with vertical shaky bars on the video and choppy audio. I was so frustrated and ready to try anything. I followed the advice on here, and while playing the choppy tape went whap whap whap! Omg it worked yay!

Error Code C:31:40
Sun, 12 Feb 2023 22:02:47 +0000

Worked for me as well. C31:40 error. Was copying old tapes to hard drives. After about 20 hours of footage got the error. Nothing worked. So based on the positive outcomes noted, I tried hitting the base of the camera (closed and turned off without a cassette loaded) 10 times with an open palm, medium force. It worked, back taping. Perhaps not a long term solution, but doesnt matter, just trying to get my content to a hard drive.

Akaso Brave 7 LE Doesn't Record Sound
Sat, 10 Dec 2022 23:49:49 +0000

You solved my problem! I had the exact same issue. No sound, went through customer service and the warranty issue (Akaso wasn't very helpful - they wanted me to buy an external microphone before finally giving in and letting me send back my unit for an exchange). New unit did exact same thing. I searched and searched for an answer to the problem, including buying multiple different memory cards. Finally found your post and turns out I always silence all of the menu options just like you did. Turned the sound back on for bootup and the problem is solved! I've been recording a cabin build and since my last camera died I've been recording with no sound for about 4-5 months now. It's been so very frustrating. Thank you!!!

Canon Digital Rebel XT $764.15 - Dell (Phone)
Fri, 18 Nov 2022 21:53:27 +0000

I pulled the trigger on the XT deal.

$999 - 10% - $90 + free 256 MB Sandisk Compact Flash + $7 (Shipping) + tax = $883.43.

It took me an hour to order this via the phone. Dell's order system is lame over the phone. At first it didn't recognize the 10% off, then it couldn't find the free 256 MB CF with camera purchase, then on top of that, the sales guy said that I couldn't apply a second discount code to the order. I had to ask to speak with a manager before he called the help desk to apply the $90 off code. The shipping should be free too, but I was late and didn't want to deal with it anymore, so they charge for that.

It's a great deal, but a pain to order over the phone.

In case you are interested, the codes do expire.

6$K9TPJ191?VTZ 10% off Canon D SLR and Lens - expires 4/13 or after 1000 uses
S$0BW75H54S60M Save $90 on $750 in Electronics & Accessories - expires 4/13 or after 2000 uses

modifying the MASD-1?
Mon, 22 Aug 2022 17:01:58 +0000

It doesn't work, it doesn't even plug into the camera and the memory card reader, I feel like a waste of money buying it. At least I can buy a 2gb XD card for a pretty cheap price, maybe the seller doesn't know its value

HDR-HC3 C:32 60
Thu, 05 May 2022 18:18:07 +0000

I have this same issue with my Sony Handicap 4k and one thing that worked to get the camera to focus was to turn it off, detach the battery for a few seconds, put the battery back on, place the camera on a flat surface like a table and then try turning it on. When I tried to do all the above but turn it on in my hand where the lens could wiggle around, it didn't seem to work. But, having it stable on the table or a tripod worked a few times so far.

c31:30 error code
Fri, 22 Oct 2021 00:18:08 +0000

It's 2021, I have a cranky Sony here that would close on the tape then refuse to feed it in, giving the same error ocde. It would eventually release the tape again though, so thought this is not going to work. Closed the tape door, powered it off and gave it a not very hard slap on all sides... and bloody hell it works now. Stupid, yet amazing. Thanks for this weird but useful trick.
