JVC GY-HM750U Record limit?
on Jul 26, 2013 at 1:43:56 pm

My job uses the JVC GY-HM750U. On a couple of shoots where I needed to record longer events, I have ended up getting multiple split clips instead of one continuous clip. I shot a 22 minute presentation yesterday and I got a 14 minute clip and an 8 minute clip. I understand there is a limit on DSLR of 12 minutes/4Gb, but didn't think this was an issue with a professional, dedicated camcorder.

Is this a "feature"? Or is something set wrong?

Cards are formatted in the camera.

Thanks!

That is normal, even in continuous mode, it'll split clips at 4GB. This is due to the camera using FAT32 as the format type for SD cards. So technically, it's a limitation of FAT32.

I have experienced the same thing, but didn't know it was a limitation of the card.
I thought the separate clips should go together seamlessly but my editor informed me that there is a 12-15 frames of gap and that the 2 clips are not seamless in the recording or ingest.
Could there be something wrong with the camera or the ingest process? We are ingesting from a card reader directly into FCP X.

I use PPro CC (and CS6) and my clips are seamless when put on the timeline.

If all else fails, I guess you could use the software that came with the camera, I believe it'll merge the clips into one large clip.

It's really more of a pain when you have 3 cameras that you are trying to do a Multi-cam edit on.
