I have a Camileo X100 (nice and fantastic image quality) and the files are not edit from any softwares of conversion or editing, I tried many times with ALL software, codec
My PC configuration is:
Win VISTA Home Premium SP2 32bit, ACER 9420 17", Intel Core2 CPU T5500, 1.66 GHz, RAM 2 Gb, HDD 160 Gb, NVIDIA G...eForce Go 7300, K-Lite Codec Pack 5.8.3, etc.).
0. Is it sufficient or no, for simple family movies for to look on DIVX reader (on TV Plasma 42" HD Ready) ?
1. How can I manage these files ?
2. I must to convert before (but without loss quality) ?
3. Please someone explains me "step by step" what do I have to do (and with which softwares) for to make simple movies (divx), without loss quality ?
4. When I connect my X100 to TV and I look a movie, remain always above a annoying strip of icon that it doesn't disappear. Is only my X100 or other people has the same problem ?
5. I have many problem also with remote control, that It's very crazy (bad firmware, zoom don't works, ...) ?
6. Is it better that me to return the videocamera or these problems have them all and they can be resolved ?
7. Is there someone that doesn't have problems with x100 ? How is possible ?
8. When Toshiba will update the firmware ?
There are too much bugs (ALL IS SLOW AND UNSTABLE).
Only ARCSoft (software in bundle) works but It's not good (cheap).
Please answer me all 9 questions.
Sorry for my english (I prefer italian).
0.The configuration is fine, although I would not use Vista, but this is personal preference.
1.The files can be managed without conversion with any video editor program, e.g. Sony Vegas, Nero Vision, etc.
2-3.Conversion is necessary in order to be able to view on DIVX player, as AVCHD is not supported usually. Unless you have a Blu-ray player. If you have one, you can prepare a BR disc on yourt computer, if you have a BR drive that can write BR discs. In this case conversion will be made, but quality will remain. You cannot make divx without quality loss. It is impossible.
4.The annoying strip iis always on the screen, you cannot remove it.
5.The remote control works fine, with the only problem I found, described in the topic I opened. Zoom does not work? You mean during playback? It works only when you are recording.
6.It is your decision whether you return the camera or not. I think for this price it is fine. For the triple price you get one, where there are no such problems.
7.I have only one problem (remote) with it, but currently I can live with that, I made my compromises.
8. Toshiba support is terrible. I cannot get even a phone number or e-mail address in Hungary for Toshiba to support. The webpage for support is confusing and if you search for Camileo, you cannot find among the many companies, that takes car of these products. Ridiculous. I have no idea whether they will update the firmware, I am curious too.
Which is your work flow with manage AVI files of X100, please tell me ste by step ?
Which are your software for start from AVI hd 1080 (X100) to AVI (for DIVX player, with good quality like DVD) ?
Please help, I will try with you.
I'll follow u !
But I want to look the result.
Sorry if I wrote "joke",
but you your answer doesn't help me.
I know where download softwares, but I need to know wich softwares
and converters that works good for mounting good family movie with AVI of Camileo X100,
that has orrible codec. Is not true that they work always, not for me and
thousand customer desperate like me.
I tried many many solutions, but nothing.
Please read better my first question.
As I understand, you might have a problem with codecs, mightn't you?
If you have problems with codecs, then you are not able to view the video files on your PC, or you create divx files, which cannot be viewed at your divx player. Is this your problem?
If yes, then you need good codecs to be installed, like K-Lite codec pack that you mentioned. If codecs are fine, the next issue is to create movie clips. This process is in the link I wrote in my previous post step by step.
This is how I undestand your problem. If this is not your problem, pls. try to be more specific. "I tried many many solutions, but nothing." Which solutions did you try? What is the "nothing"? The programs, you downloaded do not work?
The coding process does not start? The files created are not good? There can be many problems in this process.
Pls. try to explain what your specific problem is, so that I can try to help.
My name is also Antony, and I've recently purchased the Camileo X100.
I have two questions:
1. When in photo mode, every single picture I take, is too bright. I've put settings to Auto and disabled the flash-functionality, but no lack. All of them will be so white, that somebody would assume some really powerful flash would be on.
2. Is it possibly to have some live video output on my computer? Shall I just buy a video capture device, with Composite? Is there anything particular should be capable of, so as for the quality to be good? Maybe an HDMI video grabber?
So, for ASA 800, for a correct exposure in bright days, we need the speed set to 1/800 and the lens aperture at f16. There is simply no way of doing this in a fully automatic camera with such a plain (read weak) configuration interface. If it had a threaded lens front, we could attach a neutral density filter and circunvents this. But this is a machine for the plain dumb, so we have a dumb front for the lens.
The firmware clearly needs some fixing from Toshiba. And I think that this will never happen, this company seems to have no interest in solving bad issues with their products (see the Folio 100 bad press and support, I was one of the dumbheads that bought one). Toshiba - NEVER AGAIN!
Q2 : I don't think it is possible. But I am probably wrong. And USB_2.0 is slow (theoretical 480 Mbps maximum is way off limits for pratically all USB_2.0 devices).
For me and you, better luck next time in getting a decently priced camera with the right performance.
I just made a crude lens filter adapter out of a 98 cent plumbing connector that I bought at Lowe's. It is a 2 inch piece with a slip-on on one end and a male screw-on on the other end. The size of the screw-on end of the plumbing piece was closer to the size of the camera's lens so I sawed the male screw-on piece off and it fit loosely over the x100 lens. I filled the gap with foam and created a snug fit. I then took a 52mm CPL filter that I have and it fit perfectly into the the other end of the screw-on piecef. It even screwed in and created its own threads.
I wanted to do this to try to see if I can do anything about the washed-out videos that I am getting from my Camileo X100. The wash out only occurs on the far right side of the resulting video and is very annoying since the rest of the video actually looks pretty good!
I have a Gradual ND filter on order and I'll replace the CPL with the ND. I'll post a video of the adapter and the before-and-after video using the ND. If the filter makes no difference then the only thing to do is buy a better camera, which is too bad since I like this camera.
I'll post the video to Youtube and come back to this forum with the link to the video.
