fat 32 restricts the film lengths..

is it possible to film 1/2 hour after 1/2 hour files? ie multiple files without having to press record every 1/2 hour after it stopped

i film our surf sessions and just missed teh money shots just after 30 mins.. gutted!!

a huge thanks to those who helped get the firmware working on teh g12 - zoom while filming awesome!

The easy way out is to write a script that eternally loops  "start, wait 29 minutes, stop, wait a little while for write to finish". You will miss a few seconds between each file, of course, but probably a lot less than when doing it manually.

thx

someone want to try it for me for sum cash, copywright free music (reverbnation.com/iancollenette) or charity. i wouldn't have the first clue where to start but would be stoked to achieve this because there is no other 720p 24fps 1/2 decent camera that could do this - 1080p is just tooo painfully slow when taking out 3 mins of footage from 1.5 hours of data
