E-P3 : Max video duration
Just got a E-P3 recently.
The manual says this for FULL HD Fine AVCHD :
"Individual files can be up to 4 GB in size or 29 mins in length."
However, when I tried with a Transcend 8 GB Class 6 card (since the manual recommends Class 6 and above), the recording always stop at 23 mins and when I check, the file is less than 4 GB (2-3 GB). I tried this numerous times and always reformat the card before I start. And when it stops, there is no warning/error sign/icon visible.
I am suspecting that this is due to speed of the card I'm using.
Before I proceed to buy a higher speed card (most likely Sandisk Extreme Class 10), I would like to check if anyone has the same issue OR rather has anyone manage to reach 29 mins or 4 GB per video file ? If yes, what card are you using ?
