That's interesting.

Tomac, what kind of movie format does the Pentax use?

I wonder how much time will my FZ30 record. In the manual it says about 24mins but I'll just have to get that card full and find out for myself.

My Pentax records in QuickTime .mov format. I could have lived w/a 1Gb movie clip limit but I am very pleased I can do the entire 2Gb in a single clip if desired.

Yeah, me too. That's why I got the 2GB card in the first place. I'm thinking now of getting the 4GB.
Too bad the focus isn't that great when in movie mode. If that worked, then I guess the difference between camcorder and photo cameras would narrow down to almost nothing.

2Gb is the limit for my camera and that's fine for my casual use needs and I think I'd rather have a couple of 2Gb cards so I have a spare if one fails than a single larger card that would put me SOL if it failed. Right now the 43WR does everything I need but that doesn't mean something better isn't just over the horizon.
