Default Shooting Video HD1010

Still a Newbie to all this and the HD1010 cam..When shooting video can u pause the cam??or do u have to see how long a clip runs by the LCD countdown..What I guess I really mean is that when shooting a video clip can u pause it and resume shooting or only do a clip at a time?Thanks

I actually prefer this since I tend to shoot lots of short clips, otherwise I'd have to manually chop one long video up like I did in the tape days.

I can see why it may be an advantage in some situations though as you wouldn't have to wait while it writes it to the memory card.

I like the flash card method over tape. You don't have to capture or worry about dropped frames etc. The downside is sometimes you might miss a shot while the cam writes to the card. Long clip/large files can be difficult without proper codec workarounds. I just did a time-lapse of a moonrise and to keep the files size below 2 gigs I had to stop the cam a few times which caused the final project to have a small skip in it. I could have spent more time getting it perfect using various methods or shot 1 large clip and pre-rendered using virtualdub etc after configuring it with plugins.

You can see it here. http://vimeo.com/6922061

Thanks rgvcam. I just found a posting on vimeo that explained using the built in scripting in Vegas Pro8 for creating jpegs from video and it's so much faster than rendering then rendering again to get the desired speed.

Have not tried yet but how long could a clip be in time if u did not stop and then go and do another clip..Depends I assume on the resolution ur shooting at..I have so many things on my plate with a DSLR Sony 300 camera and this hd1010..I am trying to read manual and ask questions here..Do not think of me who is to lazy to test shoot and read the manual..Thanks

The camera will shoot until it runs out of battery power or fills the memory card. Once the file reaches 4 gigs a new file starts.

A 4 gig file lasts 47 minutes when I shoot 1920X1080 30 fps.
