SX700 battery and 1080p60 video

Very good!

Tested video indoors up to 120x digital zoom. In reasonable direct lighting, it reaches focus at 120x and is well stabilised. Very nice. In low light/low contrast detail, it can take up to 10 seconds to find its focus at 30x. Cant expect miracles in those conditions. I can tell the SX700 is going to be a powerhouse in good lighting.

First video, it stopped at 16.5 minutes. What the.. but it didnt shut down and no red flashing light.. oh right, the 4GB file limit.. Fat32 issue. So I filmed another 15 minutes.. got bored. Battery still at 3 bars.

Minimum half hour 1080p60 video with lots of full zooming (and focusing in low light), still at 3 bars and no red light.

Suffice it to say, I'm happy to report there is no battery issue in the SX700.
