Kodak Easyshare C713 Video Recording

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I'm looking in using my C713 in recording the driving portion of a trip I will be taking. "Like the gopro cameras"

The manual that I have says with Lithium batteries the camera can take up to 700 pictures with them but I don't know how to convert that into time it will spend on recording at 7MPs.

So does anyone have a clue?

Thanks,

well first of all the video will only be 2MP for 1080p

honestly i will go ahead and warn you to not expect the quality of the video to be anything spectacular, if you already own this camera i would suggest testing it as there are lots of mixed reviews on the battery life and a lot saying that its awful.

if you are looking in buying this camera i suggest getting something else if you want to do small compact video recording. a newer P&S camera from canon, nikon, sony, panasonic will perform quite a bit nicer than what kodak makes. kodak is not really know for high quality cameras, they are know for high quality printing and film.

I already own it, Got it back in 2008 I think for 35 bucks. Its okay not great for sure and haven't tried recording a video. If the trip wasn't already going to cost me so much I would look at buying either a sony or a cannon.

Just thought hey I have this one I barley use it and I don't take trips much so it would be kind of a waste to drop 100 on something I'm only going to use once in a while though :S

Should be clear that I'm not recording a trip to make a video of oh look at all the sites I saw. I'm going to use it for if any jerks who can't drive and might run into me and cause and accident or something.

ok? so your using it just in case you have to document an accident? does your phone have a camera? honestly my iphone takes photos that are on par with the quality of most cheap P&S cameras. if you have a relatively new smartphone that will work better than the kodak

I got my rechargeable batteries charged to 25% or a little less and let the camera just rec the wall and it lasted about an hour and 10 mins on it so at 100% charge it might last 4 hours and 40 mins to 5 hours and 50 mins maybe even 6 hours on 1 pair of batteries.

Okay I just charged the batteries fully and they lasted 3 hours and 13 minutes, when it shut off I turned it back on than it lasted 12 minutes than turned it back on and lasted a minute. I'll just basically say they lasted like 3 hours. Energizer Rechargeable batteries AA 2000mah.
