Default Canon Rebel T1i EOS 500D

Ok I may be retarded.

My fiance got a Canon Rebel for "our" wedding present. (thanks dad )

Well anyway , when we put the pictures and video onto the computer they are always huge files and the videos turn out all choppy when played. Any idea's on how to fix this and make these files usable ? Is there a program I need to download ?

I think I may look into a "for dummies" book because well I am apparently dumb.

Thanks in advance.

well you are talking about 2 different problems i think...The pics are huge probably because you are shooting in RAW mode. Read the manual and you should be able to set it to save them in JPEG mode. As for the video, it may be choppy because your computer sucks too much to play it if its high def.

going to agree on both accounts. Change camera to shhot in jpeg.

The video is going to be HD, which will require a pretty nice comp to keep up with and display correctly. Although I don't know much about the T1 video. I wish my XSi took video...

JPEG mode will help, as stated above, but it's your resolution that's making the files so large. They are probably being saved now as a TIFF file. Find a setting on the camera to change them to JPEG, and maybe drop the resolution a bit. I'm shooting with a 14 Mega Pixel camera, and the files can be up to 30 MB each. I have since dropped it down to about 8 and can shoot and print the pictures at 8x10 size and they are crystal clear, you'd never guess they were shot with a digital camera.

sell the camera to me and buy a point and shoot that you will be just as happy with and way easier to use.
