Continous video filming - Advice Needed Please
« on: April 13, 2018, 11:19:55 am »
Hi guys,

Do any one of you guys know how I can get 1 hour of continuous video recording out of my camera? I see a couple things happen:

1. On highest resolution filming the camera cuts out at 17 minutes or around 4g.
2. On second highest resolution filming camera cuts out at 29 minutes also around 4g.
3. On the lowest kakest resolution camera seems to last about an hour but then yo lose that HD resolution.

The splits in the video make it incredibly difficult to sync any audio to the video - I record the sound off a separate microphone.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Cheers
Mitch

Pretty much all cameras (Canon EOS, Gopro, my TomTom...) use the FAT32 file system on the memory card, which in turn has a maximum file size of 4GB.
What camera are you using? Dig around in the settings to see if you can format the memory card to something else (ideally NTFS or exFAT) to allow bigger files, but that's a rare option reserved for higher end or professional-grade equipment.

I have a Canon G1x or GX1.

I will try what you said tonight because I need to get continuous filming. Thank you

Seems related to the memory card size?

But that is not the whole story, you also need at least 80mb/s write speed for 4K afaik

Did you get a solution?
On my Sony NEX3 I have the same issue. Haven't found a way to correct, apart from in the editing room. However my Sony NEX10 doesn't have the same issue.
For me its not related to memory card size, necessarily, but a factory setting on the camera that I cant edit.

Only solution I found was to drop to the lowest quality and you then get around an hour. Not ideal but...
