    I did my FIRST EVER 'Digital Video' using my wife's Fuji Finepix S9600 and when I wanted to send it by e-mail to members of my Camera Club it took about 25 minutes 'sending' then I got a message saying that there was a 'Time-out' -- I put it into 'My Videos' off her Compact Flash Card OK and it will open and play 630 pixels across but is there a way I can 'squash' it down as I learned to do for JPegs as I don't think Videos count as JPegs ?

    You could try to zip it and send that - right click/Send to/ Compressed (zipped) file

    Yes you can - you should have Windows (Live) Movie Maker on your PC - in the programs list? Open the video in that and then save using "save movie for email" option.

    Alternatively (because the save for email option compresses the video to level ludicrous) open an account with Dropbox.com, put the video in your Dropbox and send the invitation link by email. For a free account you have 2GB to play with, which is enough for 8 minutes of uncompressed 1920x1080 .AVI or a couple of hours of small format .MPG.

    You won't necessarily have MovieMaker if you have an older OS, however you can download the right version for your OS for free from Microsoft Here

    Just thought I'd add that......

    Dropbox is a good idea, but doesn't everyone involved have to install the dropbox software?

    Also with dropbox, anyone who has access to the folder can add/DELETE files from there so beware! It may be the owner can specify read/write permissions on the folder - I never got that far.

    I've also heard that though the basic dropbox is free, you are bombarded with e-mails to upgrade.

    Anyone can download from dropbox if the folder is marked as public and you email them the shared link, mark the options for read / write / delete as appropriate.
    So far I have not had any spam mail from dropbox on the free account.

    I use dropbox for sharing docs and images for my local club, it's handy and no silly email file size limits.

    WoW -- !! That was quick response -- I have to get my 13 year old who is my @techical Expert' to advise me -- I have a new second hand computer called an 'e-machine Gateway' .
