Howdy, I understand that the cameras can only record 30 minutes of video before stopping and having to be started up again.  I also see that the file sizes can't be over 4 gigs.  So this leads me to two questions: 1) How much space does 30 minutes of 720p/30fps video take up? 2) Does the camera automatically create multiple files if it goes over the 4 gig mark that I can splice together afterward or what happens when the file hits the 4gig mark? Thanks!

Howdy, I have a T1i and want to try using it to record something that will go for about 90 minutes.  I know I can't record that long via a SD card but is there a way that I can connect the camera to a laptop and have it record directly to the hard drive? I know there was some Canon software that worked for things like time lapse photography and stuff like that but I haven't looked into that in years. If anyone knows if this is possible and has any instructions on how I can go about trying it...

So after much review and debating I upgraded recently from my Canon T1i and chose the Panasonic GX85 with the 12-32mm pancake kit lens. First thank you for helping make the decision I asked this forum many questions about upgrading and got lots of help and great responses from the group.   While the technical stuff mainly rules when people compare cameras there are some nice features in this camera that aren't always mentioned that I really find enjoyable.  I will list them below for any...

So my Helios 44-2 just arrived from Ukraine, more specific this one. I have two adapters, one for Canon EF and one for MFT. However, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get anything in focus using an Oly E-P3 or a Canon 500D. Here is a video I shot with the 44-2 on the 500D pulling focus from 0.5m to infinity (or the other way around, I can't remember) on f/16. The focus ring does make the lens extend, but still doesn't put anything in focus. What do you think? What else can I check or...

Most of the green info lights at the bottom of my T1i's viewfinder display are on all the time, a few of them just flash, but none are legible. I have called Canon and the repair estimate is $190 plus shipping... not worth it to me. Does anyone have experience with a self repair for this problem or know a cheaper way to go? Thanks

I have a Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 VMC macro lens, which is a 1:2 magnification lens on its own, externally focusing. (Top notch lens!). I also have a matching extension adapter to reach 1:1 magnification. The adapter has at least one glass element that I can see, either for optical correction of distortion or to maintain f/2.5 aperture size, or both--I don't know. I'm wondering if the lens + its extension adapter would work with a close-up filter like 500D (+2 diopter). Or if I won't be...
