Hi,

I got Nikon P100 and using for last one year, I am happy with the picture quality as I use for family and holiday.

I have problem with Video shoot, when I shoot in HD Video mode and review on cam it play well but when I transfer and play the same on my laptop or TV the video has kind of jerk/skip the movements or it not the smooth recording.

Hope you do my problem.
Thanks in anticipation of suggestion.

this could be down to the graphics card that you use.

Hi

Also, what class of memory card are you using in your Nikon P100?

I get some jerking on my Panasonic, especially when panning. Even on my dedicated camcorder I still get some jerking :(

Have a look at some videos on YouTube Clicky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUIRZpEdLOQ) Focus testing Clicky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZJZ9NPLneM)

Its SD HC class 4 card.
I'm using Transcend 16GB SDHC Class 6 &10 Memory Cards.

They are very cheap. Try one and see if it helps Clicky (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-16GB-SDHC-Class-Memory/dp/B003VNKNEQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345138339&sr=8-1)


Cheers!

Thanks Chris!

You mean a card class with matter for video quality and change of will help to overcome the jerks and video track skips.....right..

The P100 uses H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 or AVC (Advanced Video Coding) standard for video compression.

A faster SDHC card (class 10), can only help if the camera can write video fast enough.

You also need a fast computer to play it back on. It would jerk on a 1.6Mhz processor on a netbook for example.

So, it's a suck it and see situation.

It will only cost you under 10 to find out and you still have a spare card at the end of it.

Cheers!

Hi

It looks to me as if the processor is not fast enough to decompress the H264 video coding :(

I've had a look at the spec of the Pentium T4200 processor and it states the following:

"Due to the slow clock rate and the small level 2 cache, the Pentium T4200 will limit the performance of demanding 3D games (e.g. Sumpreme Commander). For entry level applications like office, SD video cutting, image processing, Internet and casual gaming, the T4200 should be sufficient."Note how it states suitable for SD video which is standard video not the advanced H264 video.

Out of interest:
Does it jerk if you use no zoom or panning?
Are you using a laptop?
When did you buy it?
Make and model number.
How much RAM do you have?
Are you using XP/Vista?Windows 7?

Have you a friend with a faster computer who can run the video file for you as a test?
Can you post a small sample on line so I can download it?

You can cut and paste the above and answer next to it if you like.

Cheers!
