How much movie recording time does my camera have?

In movie mode, the FE-290 can, in most cases, record continuously up to the capacity of the storage medium. When the available capacity is greater than 29 minutes (as when using 1GB or 2GB xD-Picture Card™ media), the maximum recording time per movie is restricted to 29 minutes. Additional movies may then be recorded up to the full capacity of the storage medium.

The chart below shows the maximum continuous recording time available to the FE-290 when shooting movies using the camera's internal memory and a variety of optional xD-Picture Card media. The chart assumes that the memory medium has been freshly formatted.

1 Recording times are approximate and are based on storage capacity; they are not a guarantee of battery life.
2 Using any size/type xD-Picture Card media, the maximum length per movie is 29 minutes.
