How Much Video Footage Via A 512Mb Sd Card ?

  roclive1 07:54 AM 27 May 10

I own 'Vivitar Vivicam 3826' '4.0 Mega Pixels' digital camera. How many minutes of video footage should I be able to obtain with a 512 mb sd card?
Many thanks.

It will depend on the size of the video and how much memory it takes. If you take a 1 minuet of video and transfer this to your computer you will be able to see how big this file is and work out an aprox time.

From a camera I have that takes videos at 320x240 a 1 min video uses about 7MB from a 512 card it may take 73 min aprox.

Like all cameras they will only be able to short videos and will not be able to fill the card in one take. The more videos you take the quicker you will have to change/recharge your batteries.

Going by what BRYNIT says I wouldn't worry too much. Get yourself another couple of cards and shoot to your hearts content. Cards are comparitively cheap now.

I used 8mm video for years and its amazing just how long it takes to actually use up a 45min tape.

I see that the Video resolution is only 320 x 240, so don`t expect high quality.
