Make sure your camera has video capability.

Access the options menu and see if you can set it to record with audio.

Click the shutter once to record, click it again to end the recording.

Setting a timer may be a good idea too.

Once youre done, upload them onto your computer, and you're done.

Is editing needed?

I had t he three beep problem and also the lens was open. I tried batteries - then i noticed the lens was slightly bent - i tried straightening and it snapped and went into place. then i tried turning it on and it was fine and when i turned it off the lens closed.

Maybe your lens is bent.

Hi, there are many reasons why a camera may produce less then sharp pictures.

1) Dirty, oily or damaged lens: Check for dust and fingerprints.
Clean lenses with extreme caution, using dry lens paper.
Use only minimal pressure and gently wipe from the center
outwards, NEVER in circles.

If the lens is really dirty, ask a professional photo dealer to
clean it for you as a free courtesy.

2) Check to see if the auto-focus is working correctly, this could
be an electronic or mechanical problem requiring servicing.
Focus the camera on sharp image at various distances,
to see if it responds by moving the lens.

3) Can you focus the camera manually?

4) Can you focus by moving the camera back and forth
in regards to the object of interest?

5) Is the auto-focus feature somehow disabled in the menus ?

6) Are the batteries up to snuff, they may be strong enough to
turn on the camera, but too weak to move the focus motor.

7) Is the subject you are trying to focus on out of the
focus range of the lens: i.e. too close ?

8) Is the subject you are focusing on too bland, with insufficient
detail to activate and lock the auto-focus.

9) Do you have enough light for the auto-focus to operate.

10) Does the flash unit project an red pattern to help with
focusing.

11) Are you mistaking sharpness (focus) for depth of field.
In low light conditions, the lens iris opens wide, just
like your eye, to let more light in.

This results in a loss of focussed depth of field. This
means that focusing becomes much more sensitive
and critical, such that (when) the main subject is in focus,
everything behind and in front of the subject is not.

This is a theoretical limitation of all optical lenses:
The greater the focal length and the greater the aperture,
the shorter the depth of field.

This can actually be very beneficial when shooting a
portrait: Focus on the eyebrows, blur the background,

or it can be very detrimental: When trying to magnify
a butterfly on a tulip in low light conditions, getting
everything in focus is impossible.

12) Are you mistaking motion blur with lack of focus,
due to slow shutter speeds.

13) Are you shooting in very low light conditions,
causing the picture to become more noisy,
due to the way the digital camera sensor works.

14) I you come up empty on all these suggestions,
you probably have a defective camera and it is
warranty time:

a) Defective electronics
b) Defective auto-focus mechanism
c) Defective lens, loose internal elements
d) Detached sensor chip
.... etc

Try to isolate the problem. Try to manually and
automatically focus on a wide range of subjects,
at various distances, in bright daylight conditions.

If you are still unable to focus the camera,
it is probably defective and requires replacement
or servicing

BTW
Quick review of the internet, indicates that
this particular model is notorious for high battery drain
and battery connection problems. This may be the cause
of poor auto focus as indicated above.

Also this camera has insufficient internal memory, and
and an add-on memory card is required. It is possible
that without the memory card, the camera is defaulting
to a very low pixel resolution, in order to save memory
space, thus creating the appearance of poor focus.

The nominal resolution of the camera = 7.2 Mega Pixels
is respectable for such a low cost camera, but the
reliability reviews are not good.

There is no need to install the supplied samsung digimax cd driver for vista as the supplied cd is for 2000 and XP.
Windows Vista will automatically recognize your Samsung Digimax and has a generic driver which will deal quite adequately with all the requirements.
Just plug in your camera to the usb port of your pc. Switch on your camera and hey presto - you're good to go.
Is that any help?

Kay it sounds like your battery went out. Just buy a new one and that should work

Samsung Digimax... | Answered on Jan 18, 2009


Have you tried reformatting it? That's fixed some problems with mine, you could try that and see if it works

If it isn't too far out of your means, I don't use the software for my camera. I use a card reader. You can find a card reader for about $10 - $15 in most stores that will read 7 or more types of cards. I use my own photo software. Only accessed the disk for the pdf manual. My laptop has a built in card reader. You may be able to find a solution by letting your computer search for a driver on Microsofts site. Mine was automatically recognized on win xp. Hope this helps.

Take the camera inside and let it warm up to room temperature. Get another set of brand new batteries. But first take out the batteries and let it sit for an hour. Without any power it can reset itself. The mini cpu inside is thinking its too cold and won't let it come on. After the one hour of sitting, put the new batteries in it and try to power it up. Cold weather can kill a brand new set of batteries in a matter of minutes. You should try not using your camera when its below freezing.

Samsung Digimax... | Answered on Jan 09, 2009


you need the usb cord that came with the camera and you must install the software on your computer.

you can also get a memory card to put in it and memory card converter.
