This is the main reason I say using your 7D for any real long videos, is no substitute for a real camcorder. Along with a choice of smaller files you get auto focus. The Canon 7D get great quality video but as you find out their files are BIG. Using software to reduce them in another format, you don't have the once really quality 7D videos anymore. There still good but you have changed the quality.

Even old DV tapes at NTSC resolution burned 11G/hour.
