Capturing video issue

In video mode, and aftering powering on, I press the Shutter/Select button to start recording, and the camera immediately powers off.  I have not used the camera in a couple of years, so I am a little rusty.

Re: Capturing video issue

How are you powering on your camera?  Are you using the power button (mode button ) located on the side of the camera, or are you pressing the shutter button ( located on top of camera)?

 

If you are pressing the shutter button you are enabling "Quick Capture" mode which would start recording video immediately.  If you press the button again, this will shut off your camera.

Re: Capturing video issue

Push the Power/Mode button on the front of the camera, powers on and see that I am in video mode, then press the Shutter/Select button on the top of the camera and the camera immediately powers off.
