View Full Version : Maximum clip lenght with Gh-13?

I wondered how long can you record a single clip with these settings on a 32 gig sd card?

PappasArts 1440X1080-30P Finale V.1
MJPEG 1280p width - input 1440
MJPEG 1280p height - input 1080
MJPEG Encoder 1280m-1920m - checked
QUALITY SETTINGS [ 384, 330, 300, 276 ] TABLE SETTINGS [ 24, 24, 24, 24 ]

I am wondering because the time limit was 30 minutes before right? Can It still reach 30 minutes or even longer?

I believe the 30 minute limit was for PAL cameras with AVCHD.

On NTSC cameras, you can record continuously to the limit of the card's capacity. However, the camera will segment this continuous recording into separate 4GB clips.

The MJPEG limit has always been 10 minutes per continuous clip on all cameras. I don't know if that has changed with the hack. Maybe I'll check that later today or tonight. Can't do it now.

Yes you could record to the card's full capacity, which (in stock mode) would mean about 4 hours on a 32GB card. It will always segment into 4GB clips, that's how all FAT32 recording is done.

In MJPG mode, the limit is 2GB, with no file spanning. So it will stop recording once the file size reaches 2GB.
