All depends on what resolution and frame rate...as well as which size of card you choose.

The HVX is native 24p, so shooting at that frame rate can double your recording time compared to any of the "over 60" frame rates.

At 1080/30p, about 2 minutes a gig
At 720/24p about 2.5 minutes a gig
At 720/1080 @60p about a minute a gig
DVC-Pro about 4 minutes/gig (Standard Def)

The E cards were just released, which helped drop the price of the A and R cards (Lifetime warranties). E cards supposedly have less of a life (The ability to fill it up and drain it every day for 5 years;))...than the A and R cards...however, the E series cards have a faster transfer rate (off load) at 1.2Gbps vs. 800Mbps (A series) and I believe 600Mbps (R series). We've never had one fail and between our 3 HVX'es, we've cooked just over 3500 hours of footage!

Sizes range from 4g-64g. On sale now, 16-64

Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review

looks good to me. only 20p but it will give me another angle when reading the vows and maybe I can have it ready to go on a steady-cam while something boring is happening and I can just let the 5d2 video on a tripod.

EOS 500D is an excellent camera, with the 50 1.8 lens. Max continous recording time (so I have been told) is, 1920 12 minutes, 720 18 minutes.
