SDHC card - interesting observation

I was playing with my new HM-750 the other day to see if there were any major differences between it and my HM700 (other than the 720x480 SD mode, there are none).
I plugged in an SDHC card and noticed, to my surprise, that it said I had 160 min. of record time available.
I had just pulled this same card from my 700 where it said I had 115 min.
The card was freshly formatted and the camera setups were identical.
All I can surmise is that the difference is due to the SD record mode even though the cameras were set to MP4 1440x1080 60i.

Re: SDHC card - interesting observation

Hi Mike,
the answer is simple. You HM750 is set to a different record mode than your HM700. 1440x1080/60i can be set to 35Mbit/s (HQ-mode) and to 25Mbit/s. With 25Mbit/s you will get 160 minutes and with 35Mbit/s you will get 115 minutes.

Thanks Joachim.
I'm positive that I set both cameras identically but I'll confirm that tomorrow.

Re: SDHC card - interesting observation

Thanks again Joachim. Your suggestion was indeed the answer.
I need to spend (a lot) more time reading the manual.
