How do I use the Movie Digest function to shoot and to play back movies made with it? (PowerShot ELPH 530 HS, 320 HS / IXUS 510 HS, 240 HS)

Solution

You can make a short movie of a day just by taking still images.
Each time you take a picture, the scene just before taking your shot (about two to four seconds) will be automatically recorded as a movie. All the movies recorded on the same day will be saved as a single file.
IMPORTANT
  • The position and shape of the operation buttons, screens displayed, and setting items may differ according to the model you use.
  • Since you are also shooting movies when you shoot still images, the battery will be depleted more quickly than in [AUTO] (
    ) mode.
  • Movies created in [Movie Digest] (
    ) mode are saved as iFrame movies.
  • In the following cases, movies will be saved as separate files even if they were shot on the same day with [Movie Digest] (
    ) mode.
- If the movie file size reaches about 4 GB or the total recording time reaches approx. 30 minutes
