Kakima, thanks for the response. Pentax Optio WG-1 Total time does increase when resolution is reduced. Still the same total time with 4GB or 16GB.The manual states that the camera will record in blocks of 2GB. If recording stops at 2GB start again to continue recording the rest of the movie in blocks of 2GB. If true..total time will be greatly increased per # of GBs. Confusing Why did they do that? Is a video clip, one continual movie with out stopping? Thanks again Don

Not long ago camera's, computer's etc could not imagine a file or a memory device larger that 2Gigs. Making files in 2 gig sections was the workaround. If this is a newer model, this should not be a problem.

SOURCE: My Pentax Optio s5Z is stuck on one mode

I also had this problem. I think it is caused when the camera is turned off while in the viewing part of the camera. That is, I had gone to look at the video that I had just taken, but didn't and then turned the camera off. The camera is then as you have described it.
The only way I could get it back to normal is to connect the camera to the computer, using the cable, and download the photos and videos. When the download is complete, disconnect the camera and it should be OK.
Good luck, cheers. Phil

SOURCE: Problem with memory card

Quoting from page 107 of my copy of the manual:

"Recording can continue until the built-in memory/SD memory card is full, or the size of the recorded movie reaches 4GB."

From that, it's apparent that a 16GB card won't let you record longer videos than the 4GB card. It will let you record four such videos, however.

It will take a 2 GB card, I am using one now.
I can't tell you about a 4GB card, but that's a LOT of storage, so you probably don't really need a 4GB card anyhow???

Problem with memory card


Hi,
your camera can only read so many partitions
( File Allocation Tables )
( partitions are sections of the total volume )
Like slices of a cake.
which equals 4 GB, total.

so it will never be able to read more than this.

Like FAT32 on a Pc, will read 32GB
but you could have a 100GB hard drive in the machine, still reads 32GB only, so even on a PC 68GB would be wasted.

The file format on the camera can not change,

So you are stuck with 4GB max reading.

Hope this halps
Regards
Richard.

Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N


The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.
