Movie Mode

by Fish / July 6, 2005 7:38 AM PDT

I tried out the movie mode on my Canon A 510 for the first time and it works pretty good.I tried to email it to a friend but it came back because it was too big for email.It is 1 minute and 15 seconds long and 19.9mb in size.Is there any way I can send this?

Dell 8400
Pentium 4 cpu 3.20 GHz

Maybe I'm asking the impossible? Maybe these clips can't be sent as email in any size? Is there any established procedure to share clips?

The easy methods cost......Free methods are cumbersome.

There are all kinds of services that let you store a large file and your friend then just downloads it.
These services charge a fee.

Any free method will usually require that you and your friend have a file sharing program.

You can find programs that break a file into smaller files that have to be put back together at the other end.

MSN Messenger can be used to send large files.


Here is a Google link that covers all the methods:

This was referred to me... have not used it but looks simple and has the capacity up to 1GB. Apparently is free and looks simple.

Good luck!
