When recording movies in the SHQ image quality mode, I am restricted to 20 seconds of recording time per movie. Why?

In SHQ mode, the SP-320 records movies with VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Recording this much data, this quickly, requires a large amount of camera memory and a very quick write time.

Olympus’ Type M+ and Type H xD-Picture Card media are high-speed cards and are able to process this volume of information with no loss in quality. Other commercially available media, including Type M and Standard type xD-Picture Card media, are not able to do so. For this reason, this model limits movie recording in SHQ mode to 20 seconds when using media other than Type M+ or Type H cards. The 20-second restriction guarantees that the camera will be able to process the data properly and produce a smooth, error-free movie during playback.

Keep in mind that there is no restriction on movie recording length, other than the capacity of the storage media, when recording in the HQ (320 x 240 pixels) mode.
