Solved Jerky playback of video on Canon Ixus 115HS digital camera.

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, When panning the camera while taking video on my Canon Ixus 115HS I find that when playing back the recording on my computer, or if I have burnt the files to a DVD, that the final picture is very jerky horizontally. It's as if you have moved the camera for about 1 sec, paused briefly, then continued the panning video. If the camera is held steady, no jerkiness is noticed.
Would appreciate any help you may be able to give me with this problem.

Thank you in anticipation, Graham.

It's caused by shaking the camera. Hold the camera as steady as possible or buy a camcorder tripod.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. It is not my steadiness when holding the camera while panning. It is a regular jerkiness every second on playback. This camera takes HD video, and to make a comparison, I tried a Panasonic digicam with less picture definition, and the playback of the final picture was as smooth as.

Cheers, Graham.

✔ Best Answer
Can you record in lower resolutions? If so do you have the same problem? Has it always been this way or is this a recent problem?

Does your camera use a memory card to store the video? If so, did you purchase a high speed memory card made for taking pictures and video? If you are using a low quality, low speed memory card, it may be that video is being written too fast to it and it can't keep up so it's dropping data. Go to a camera store, most of them will have cards you can try out. Ask them if you can try a high speed card and see if that helps.

Hi, Recording in a lower resolution definitely does help with the jerky panning problem on playback. It appears that my computer is not fast enough to handle the HD video. I have a single core 2.3GHx CPU and it appears that I should be using a 2.6GHx Dual-core instead.
Thanks for your suggestion.

I have since purchased a Class 10 speed SD card, but unfortunately it did not resolve my problem.
Thanks for your suggestion though.

Hi, Finally solved the problem. Downloaded and installed Daum Potplayer to play my HD videos, and all the panning views taken, come out as smooth as.

Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Thanks for posting back with the solution. Sometimes lousy video is related to too little ram. You never said how much your computer had but if the problem re occurs you might look into adding more.
