Has anyone tried the 8gb SD card in the HD1 yet ?

Its pretty darned cheap now but I don't want to buy it without knowing if it works or not and if it does work what happens when you go past 4gb of data in a single clip :-)

You can get one for $96 now !!!

Almost cheap enough for me to impulse buy just to find out if it works or not!

Can you reach the end of the 8GB card before your battery runs out? How much of the 8GB is useable on a single charge?

what about the original OLED HD1 ??

no the battery will not hold for 8gig it barely holds for 4gig :-) so you will definately need to swap batteries or run on external power. I made a power station for it. first I taped the cradle to my tripod. I rigged up 4 7.2v rc batt packs (3amps each) to give me a 6amp 14.4v source that I ran into a miniature inverter to the camera's power pack to the cradle (all this is taped to the tripod)

I ran the camera for over 3 hours without a problem save the heat warning indicator coming on (though it kept on recording fine)
