Got the card. Popped it in the camera, in video mode. Swore. Only showed 61 minutes 7 seconds remaining, or it was only using 4gb.
The File System uses FAT32, which is limited to a maximum file size of 4GB. So, you can't have a video file larger than 4GB. You can store more than one 4GB file on the same card. But, the largest size for a single video file will be limited to 4GB.

Jim, dang, you're _good_. Thanks. I think somehow I'll just have to suffer along with one hour of video per clip. Maybe I can cope. =)

I'm amazed at technology. I've got a Canon A series in my car for work. There's still the original 32mb card with it. Now I'm using a card 500 times larger, and it's only maybe 3 or 4 years newer. Wow.

used the 16GB card 3 times to test it out and it is working very very well for me. The main use will be for a family wedding in May.

1 hour of video per file is huge. Remember that when you want to save it you need a disc biggest to hold it for playback and unless your using a blue ray disc 4GB is a good max file size.
