Hi,

In my 4/8 GB sdhc cards I´m just able to produce videos of 33 min in 640 mode...

The 8 GB card should take at least 80 min...like in the 320 mode!

That 33min are nearly 2 GB video size.

By the way, my V570 give me 58min with a 2 GB card in the same 640 mode and 80 min in 640 long mode.

Any ideas?

thanks

Wish I could help you out. I have that rig but have never shot video for anything other then to see how it looked, same with my Z812is and Z1012is, and I've never tryed the HD on those two. Someone here must have an answer, all I know is with the a (mistake------>1g card in the slot it says 29:09 at the top right<-----mistake) should say2G card.With the 4g card in the slot it says 58:01.

Hi,

I got something to compare and seems I got less time in my cards, than in yours:

Just try my small cards and is like this:

sandisk 512 MB: 7:12
sandisk 1.0 GB:14:28
kingston1.0 GB:14:32

So, your cards after formatted give you the double of time.

As I see, the problem has to do with the compression method, because I also try the format trought the computer with FAT and FAT32, with the same result.

I go to present these results to kodak and wait.

Thanks for your help.

Sota

...Just for your information, I just tried switching my Z712 to 640 video mode and it says there's28m35s available on a formatted but empty 1GB MB SD card, and 14m16s on a 512MB car ...

Hi,

One last thing, could you try to make a video longer than 33min in your Z712 with the 4 sd card in 640 mode and also check what is the firmware version?

Thanks for all.

No time to do a VIDEO now but the firmware is 1.0600



512=7:17

1g=14:27

2g=29:09

4g=58:01

Sorry I thought I put the 1g card in and put the 2g in, so this is what I got in the Z712is.
