Make a Mini-Movie Clip
Make a Mini-Movie Clip
1. Set your camera to movie mode.
The ability to capture mini-movie clips is a creative feature of most digital cameras. You can also use your digital camera to capture important brief moments, such as the baby's first steps, when you don't have a video camera handy.
Select the resolution or image size of the mini-movie in your camera setup screen. The larger the image, the more memory it takes to store the same length of video. Small clips are good for comments or to share a brief moment in a child's life. Larger clips are better when there is specific information to share, such as how to install a washer in a leaky faucet.
2. Hold down the button to shoot your brief movie clips.
Remember that movie clips take up more memory than still images. Keep your clips brief. You can also mix video and still images on your memory card so switching from still to movie mode during a shoot is simple.
3. Transfer your movie clips to your computer from your memory card or by connecting your USB cable (as you do for transferring still images).
4. Copy your movie clips to your computer, as shown in Figure 17-27.
5. Play back your movie clips using Microsoft Media Player, as shown in Figure 17-28.

Record Sound Notes
Recording sound notes on your camera is a great help when you're shooting a series of images, such as when shooting a home insurance inventory. To record a brief sound note on your computer, begin by setting your camera to sound record mode.
#You can "annotate" your still images with a brief audio message so you can remember the context of the photo you're shooting later. Using sound clips for this purpose, although exacting a premium in media storage space, keeps your hands on the camera rather than switching back and forth to a notebook. The steps for planning and shooting a home insurance inventory appear earlier in this chapter, in the section "Make an Insurance Inventory."

2. Shoot your brief sound note.
Sound clips take up a significant amount of memory. Keep your sound notes brief.
3. Transfer your sound notes to your computer from your memory card or by connecting your USB cable as you do for transferring still images.
4. Copy your sound notes to your computer, which looks much the same as copying a picture or movie to your computer, as shown in Figure 17-29.
5. Play back your sound notes using Microsoft Media Player as shown in Figure 17-30.
