I found this tip for the Canon SD970 IS in DigitalCameraRevi

by lornakismet / July 9, 2009 3:23 AM PDT

I just read something in Digital Camera Review that I would like to share with others about using the video on the Canon SD970 IS. This would make a big difference for me, since I know that stumbling around preparing my camera to shoot video would fluster me. ~Lorna

?More and more compacts are coming out with controls that allow the user to start shooting video by means of a single button push from any shooting mode. The SD970 IS doesn't have that feature per se, but there's a handy work-around: the camera allows the user to "register" certain camera functions to the direct print button on the camera back that can be called up with a single push. If you only register video, you can start recording by pushing the direct print button no matter what shooting mode you're in. A second push of the direct print button or full push of the shutter button stops recording.?
