  1. Hi,

    Please excuse this OT posting. I have looked for another news
    group but couldn't quite find what I need.

    My brother has bought himself a digital video camera that
    produces video clips as well as stills and is hoping to take some
    videos with it on his upcoming holiday. Can anybody tell me how
    long, in minutes say, he would expect to be able to shoot using a
    1GB SD memory card? I believe that the camera shoots clips at 320
    by 240 pixels but, as I have no idea of the compression algorithm
    used, cannot do the arithmetic.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers - Joe G3LLV

    WEll since you didn't:

    1. Tell us what camera he has, or

    2. What compression is used,

    3. RTFM which would tell you the answer...

    the best answer I can give is "a whiles" or perhaps just a little bit

  3. The camera's manual should have a chart that tells you how many
    minutes, along with the number of photos at each resolution/memory card
    size as well as the maximum size of memory card that the camera can
    hold. If he doesn't have a user's manual look for the manufacturer's
    website and download one.

    Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to
    prove it.

    Why not take some video at home before you go, and see how long they
