HVX Scene Files - How To?


I'm not sure why I'm finding this so difficult, but I've gone over pages 54 through 56 three or four times now and am finding it hard to understand how to save scene files to a SD card and then get to them.

First, I've followed the instructions #1 - #11 on pgs 54 & 55, including hitting the save button, yet when I turn off the camera and turn it back on Scene file I saved in for the F1 position is no longer there. I named this file "RL-01," and it has all of the settings that Robert Lane described in his HVX Clips thread.

Really though, I want to save this to the 128 meg Panasonic SD card I have inserted, and I'm just not getting it. What I'd like to have in the long run would be a collection of SD cards with 4 settings on each, to use in various shooting situations - indoor, outdoor, certain looks, etc.

I'll understand if nobody replies to this, as I know it's so basic. But I did a search in the forums and on GOOGLE and have not had any luck finding any other topics on the subject.

I'll continue to try to learn myself and will post back here with anything I come up with.

Hi Derek,

When you are inputting the name, you need to go to the last letter input before it goes into the save routine. So you have 5 letters, move your cursor over to the end and it will actually save. I think this is the problem you may be experiencing. I recall scratching my head at first as well.

Let me know if this works.

Thank you Jan,

That worked! Mission Accomplished... half way.

Now I've got Robert's settings in Scene File F1.

The next thing I would like to do is save the settings on F1 to the SD card.

So can I save from the F1 setting to the card? Or do I need to go to the card and save the settings directly there? The "Saving scene files and other settings on SD memory cards" section on page 56 is a little unclear.

It says right before step 1 "If you have saved a scene file." Does that mean a saved scene file on the camera in one of the F settings or does that mean a saved scene file on a SD card?

What are the steps of saving a scene file (or 4) to the SD card?

You can save an individual scene file to internal memory, or you can save all your scene files to the SD card. The process you've been using (in the Card Functions menu) saves them to the SD card.
