The 6 second movie sample in the Z3 review is approx 9 MB.That shouldindicateapproximately5,5 minutes on a 512MB card.

I don't have a Z3 myself yet. I still haven't decidedif I shall buy the Z3 or a Canon S1IS.

Hehehe. Same dilemma I was in for a while. I chose the Z3 because I liked the advantages it has. From what I hear though, the S1 is a mighty fine camera. Has trouble with low-light though, at least that's what most reviews indicated.

Best of luck with whichever one you choose.

It will give you approximately 30 minutes on a 512mb card. The 16mb card that it comes with records approximately 55 seconds worth. 55 seconds x 32 (the 512 card is 32 times bigger then the 16mb) and then divide by 60 to get your minutes.



55 x 32 = 1760 seconds / 60 = 29.3 minutes. Granted this willreduce when you start to add pictures on it

Since S1 supports CF cards - they are available in large capacities - currently to 8 Gb - where as the max available SD cards are only 512 MB - 1 GB .
Even though S1 can record to max of 9 mins of high quality video - u need not change cards freq if u have high capacity cards

Well, check the prices for this8 GB card. It would be cheaper almost to buy a separate digital video camera.
