When recording in any mode, ie Full HD quality, or SD, or any other, the camcorder makes 2Gb files with the subset xxx, xxx-1, xxx-2 etc. So i.e. in full HD, every 11.xx minutes, the time depending on variable bit rate, a new file is created. This sounds ‘fine’, but when I download the files to my PC, and edit the ‘scene’ in my editing program, there is a ‘blip’ between the ‘clips’. This can create problems with audio sync the further on one goes especially on a long ‘scene’. What can be done about this.
Bearing in mind I did a lot of research before buying the camcorder…..
The deciding factor was on page 43 of the manual: A single scene can be recorded continuously for 12 hours; at that point, the camcorder will stop for about 3 seconds before resuming recording.
