Question about Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera
Ok, here's the deal...
The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the available space really fast. Keep in mind, that in high resolution video mode, as opposed to standard, you will eat up at least 64 in about 7 minutes, not 5.
I dropped a 512 MB SD card in the camcorder, and on high resolution video, you might get away with 45 minutes to and hour. The camcorder records in 640 by 480 resolution, which isn't bad, but certainly isn't in DVD quality either...
So, pick youself up a 2 GB SD card, and you will certainly get up to at least 5 hours in standard mode. Rule of thumb, 400 MB per hour in standard mode. But, if you also go into the camera mode and take high resolution photos, that will also eat up your available storage ability...
Any other questions, just let me know...
