Now the first problems came up… not exactly with the functions of the HD-camera, but with the codecs. It only saves the video files in the .mov-format. Unfortunately Youtube doesn’t accept the normal HD-videos (it DID however accept the Full HD-movies in the .move-file-system).
So the biggest challenge was to find a program which can convert the files into a format Youtube can recognize. Easier said than done, because most of the which are freeware only offer the HD-option if you buy the full version, or there are other minor issues with them or they don’t work at all.
So finally I found a website which converts every format:
Only problem is that it first needs you to upload the initial file, then it needs some time to convert it and then you have to download it again, and of course you have to do the same thing to get it on Youtube. With a slow connection like mine that’s not the best solution. And what’s even more annoying: You are on queue, that is you have to wait until it’s your turn to upload it.
So unfortunately I only managed to upload only one of those HD-videos:
Now with the Fujifilm A220 I also took some photos, but it’s safe to say that 12 Megapixels don’t look much better than the 6.1 of my old cam. Still I recorded some videos and I’m going to upload them as well to see how the picture and sound quality is.
Here’s one photo I took with the 12 Megapixel-function:
