One more item of note that you'll want to be aware of if you're shooting long (LOOOONG) shots which if you're filming football you might end up doing. There is a bit of an odd quirk that happens at least with the HMC40, it splits the files with each file being I believe 2 GB in size. Now if you go into your editing software and notice that there is a hiccup or a bit of a 'dropout' or stutter that happens, it's likely because of these file splits. It's only because the video and matching audio are on separate sides of the split.

If you're fine with a little windows command line, there's a simple way to join all these files together. Open up a windows terminal, change directory to where all your .MTS files are, and you can run this command to join them all into one file called output.MTS.

copy /b .*MTS .OutputFile.MTS

(/b means binary copy, the .*MTS defines the input as all files ending in .MTS, and .OutputFile.MTS defines the output file name for all the individual MTS files to join into)

Now there are other utilities to join the files, I do believe, and some video editing software will handle those 'splits' in the files gracefully. However if you run into any issues, just join them all together into one big file and it should solve the mystery and problems associated with shooting long shots.
