It is extremely unlikely that a digital camera has enough memory for 6 hours of video unless you are shooting at very low resolution and/or frame rates. Even highly compressed video eats MBs a second.
This camera has a built-in video time limit of 10 minutes.
Unless you know how to hack camera firmware, that's it.

When using brand new fully charged batteries. After only 2/3 minutes use, the camera displays the red battery warning icon and then shuts down,


Some batteries, although the correct nominal voltage for the camera, are not powerful enough for continued use. I have found the best solution is to use rechargeable NiMH batteries of at least 2100 MaH, preferably 2500 MaH.

Hi Doug,
You are right in identifying the cause of the pre-mature shut-down of the camera during video recording. Battery saving features (auto-shut down) detect the camera as idle while you are recording. you could do two things to avoid this;
1. A short term practice is to manipulate the camera to stay on by using the zoom button, taking a snap-shot or anything like that from time-to-time, before the 2 minutes is up. This will keep the camera awake long enough for you to record a good length of video.
2. The second and permanent option is to program the camera - just as you mentioned. You can do that by opening the menu and under camera setting , scroll down till you find the auto-power save. Change the time to your preference

Please note: You have to switch off your camera as soon as practicable while the auto-switch-off time is set at a bigger value to conserve the battery. otherwise the battery will be drained quicker than you imagine.

I hope this helps.

When I take videos with my canon rebel, it stops recording after about 30 seconds. Do I have some settings set incorrectly?


If you are shooting video then you must have the Canon Digital Rebel T2i as the Rebel T2 is a film camera. Anyway I've checked through some data and your camera is capable of 29 minutes 59 seconds of video before shutting down due to heat. I would expect that your memory card is not a Class 6 or faster if it is then you may have forgotten to format the memory card to the camera it is being used in.

Hi I have a Flip Ultra Video. When it says I still have 1 hour 23 mins of recording time the camera shuts down. Battery?? I plug it in to charge and after that it says I have over an hour left of...


1) Put your Flip Ultra back into the pakaging box
2) Keep it safely inside your fridge (make sure the fridge isnt on or the best is an old fridge model)
3) Scratch your head and scratch your nuts in the same time for thirty second
4) Turn on your Flip camera, press the red button for setting, and change it to indonesian language. If no indonesian language in the setting, shake it 3 times. It surely has.
5) Jumping around on your parent bed.
6) Sing Britney Spears song and film it yourself.
7) Press stop button
8) Post it on youtube.

I hope this will fix ya problem. Have a nice day :)

For my first generation GoPro camera, do I need a memory card with a class rating higher than a 2 to have better quality videos. Also my camera seems to have a mind of its own and shuts down after about 30...


A Class 6 memory card is required for recording HD quality video. Not sure if yours is HD or not. Anything lower than Class 6 (such as Class 4 or Class 2) will result in recording issues and possibly skipping some video here & there.

As for the 30 seconds of filming limit...

1) It may be the memory card...that is if it's lower than Class 6. As a rule of thumb, when it doubt, buy Class 6 or better. Class 10 is the next step up, but it's a quite a bit more expensive.

2) Make sure you are using good, Lithium batteries...not Alkaline. Alkaline batteries will shut the camera down after a very short period.

Here are more tips on shortened recordings from GoPro's Website, followed by their Support Contact Info:

The batteries do not last very long.
  • It is not recommended that you use Alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries have the best results and longest battery life. Rechargeable NiMH are another option in mild weather.
  • Is it cold out? Battery life can definitely be affected by the cold! Please make sure you only use Energizer Lithium batteries in the cold, as any other battery type will perform poorly. In cold temps, you can expect about half of the normal run time when using the Energizer Lithium batteries.
  • Still having shortened records with a good set of the recommended batteries? Please email our support team through http://gopro.com/support for further assistance.

'Format not supported'


Hey.
I've just bought it and had a similar problem. What helped is:

1) Download Total Video Converter
2) In conversion format menu go to "Pocket Player."
3) Click "SONY Cellphone" and choose the middle line (Sony K700... blah blah)
4) Set the quality on "normal"
5) Low quality won't work - it'll say the file's not supported.
6) This worked for me. 45-minute video takes about 10 minutes to convert.


Hope it helps.
