Content Id: 8201489300


Using the supplied [ImageBrowser EX] software, you can change the size or format of movies before saving them.


The operations described here assume that the ImageBrowser EX software from the supplied CD (DIGITAL CAMERA Solution Disk) has been installed, and has been updated over the Internet.
If there is no [ImageBrowser EX] on the supplied CD, you can download and install the [ImageBrowser EX] updater from the downloads section of the Canon Web site. Please note that you will need to have your camera ready when you do the installation.
In this section, Windows 7 is used as an example. Depending on the operating system you are using, on-screen displays and operations may differ slightly.
Movies you edit this way cannot be returned to the camera.
Playback of some scenes may not be smooth if you change the frame rate after movie editing.
Saving movies may take some time. In particular, saving movies in MOV format may take a long time. Note that the time required may vary greatly depending on computer performance and movie size (resolution).
