Just got the AF100 and some excellent 16GB SDHC cards. I thought I'd get 30 minutes of recording time at 1080x24p. Is this correct? Seems like I'm getting less time. Same question regarding the AC160. Is there an equation I can use to determine record times for different settings (or better yet an already existing table)?
Thanks so much for actually taking the time to give a real response, vs. telling me to look in the manual. I was actually on the phone with Panasonic tech support, because it was not so easy to find in their manual. And then tech support told me 16GB had a record time of 3hrs... I knew that wasn't right.
So thanks for that figure. The camera itself is showing a record time of 1hr 37 minutes at highest quality, significantly more than your calculation, so I guess I'll find out empirically. I thought this would be pretty straight forward...
Anyway, Happy Holidays and thanks again
what numbers did you input? I'm shooting 1080x24p. AVCHD @ 25mbps. I'm not having any issues with the recording, just trying to get a handle on the numbers and real-life record times I can expect to see.
