I tried this once last year and unfortunately the size of the files that came from the camera were 200MB - 500MB MPG files and I couldn't reduce the size of them without reducing the sound and picture quality.
The camera also has a DVD burn function, and I remember last time when I plugged the camera in to the PC I pressed the DVD burn button on the camera base unit and it asked me to put in a blank DVD disc in the computer and it automatically burnt the files onto the DVD - then I copied the files from the camera to the PC. But as I mentioned the files were huge and I just couldn't e-mail them to anyone or upload them to a website.
is there a way I can download / transfer the files from the camera so they are not so 'huge' - or is there some way we can convert the files to another format so they are smaller but still retail the picture and audio quality?
any help would be appreciated
