hi!
been trying to film a 30 min continuous shot,
even when setting the video config to unlimited
the video still stops at the dreadful 4GB FAT32 limit.
i've tried to lower the video quality but this didn't
work either..

any workaround ??

thanks.

hi,

i've loaded the script
in the folder
selected it to run in alt mode.
however when i run it -
by switching to alt and half pressing the shutter
it starts and finishes instantly.
displaying:

*** STARTED ***
*** FINISHED ***


also i get this  message :

uBASIC:1 Unk stmt


i tried it also while recording video
switching to ALT
and half pressing shutter

and got the same result

am i missing something ??

thanx

That message (1 Unk stmt") means that there's a syntax error in the first line of the script. The reason is almost certainly because the file is not a simple text file. How did you download it and transfer it to the camera?

You must use a simple text editor (e.g. NotePad in Windows) to edit and save it otherwise the format and line-endings will not be right.

You can use this attached script. The one posted on the wiki page needs to be modified to work on this cam.

yea, i looked that up and saw it was indeed an error code ..

however the file was indeed saved as simple text, unicode UTF 16

made on mac with text edit, converted to plain-text via format tab
and saved as unicode UTF 16 ..
