NOTE
  • The following types of MP4 scenes will be recognized as multiple files on other devices.
    - Scenes exceeding 4 GB
    - Scenes recorded at 35 Mbps exceeding 30 minutes
    - Scenes recorded at a video quality other than 35 Mbps exceeding 1 hour
  • The camcorder uses a variable bit rate (VBR) to encode video so the actual recording times will vary depending on the subject.
