Chapter 12. Photo Projects > Shoot Movies with Your Camera

Shoot Movies with Your Camera

Although some digital cameras come with a movie function that integrates motion and sound, we don't recommend that you rely on your still digital camera for this purpose. Movie and still cameras are optimized to do related but actually quite different things.

But there are certainly times when you're caught without a video camera and desperately want to show something as it moves or changes. If you do, bear in mind that there just isn't enough storage space on a Flash card or even a microdrive to adequately record a movie. And the movies you can make with a digital camera will be extremely limited in on-screen size (usually a tiny window) and length (a couple of minutes at most) (Figure 12.13). If you choose to shoot at a window size large enough to actually see something, you'll measure your movie in seconds, not minutes.
