    How do you take Motion jpegs off of the Panasonic Lumix Tz7 camera

    I have a lumix zx3 camera (the US one) but when I plug the usb lead into the pc, and go to the folder on my computer, i can only see the JPEGs , but no video files.

    How can i take just the video files off?

    Use a card reader.

    did the card reader come in the box?

    No, a card reader can usually be found at the front of your computer, if not a USB plug in type can be purchased.

    Your Camera will have an SD Type memory card.

    could u link me to somewhere to buy that as ive just got this camera and am clueless what that means atm wont a usb lead suffice?

    You don't need to buy a card reader, you already have the USB cable and you say you can see the photo's from it.. the movies are there somewhere, maybe in a different subfolder?

    On my TZ5 i think you have to switch it to the movies mode on the selection wheel before transfer. I know that each 'switch' on the selection button throws up a different set of pics on the memory card.

    theyre not anywhere ive checked all 3 folders, i can only open them using the lumix software. it is because theyre ntsc?

    Format (ntsc/pal) should not make any difference. Windows should see them as a file and not distinguish between video format. Its like saying ive got a folder full of avis and windows wont see the ones that are ntsc... doesnt work that way ;-)

    Have you looked on the front of your computer for card slots?

    Mine has 3 card slots, that will take different cards.

    That is assuming you are using a card and not camera internal memory of course.
