totally basic question
on Dec 21, 2011 at 11:00:11 pm

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 all,

Dorit

Thanks in advance,
Dorit

The camera manual lists record times. Make sure your cards are totally cleared and formatted before you start shooting.

You should get approximately 80 min of 1080 AVCHD recording time on a 16GB card.

AJA has a nice calculator for Mac and Windows.

Also available for iphone and ipod touch on the APP store.

Hi Eric

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

Dorit

Thanks in advance,
Dorit

Eric, hi again

Hmmmm. Can you tell me how you came up with 80 minutes? Were you using AJA's DataRate Calculator?

Thanks in advance,

No problem. I used the AJA app for iPhone but I also shoot with the AF-100. Try reformatting the card in the camera. That should fix your issue.

I just put a new Panasonic Gold 16GB and reformatted it. Total time available 1hr 38min.

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.

Thanks again,

Dorit

Thanks in advance,
Dorit
