    Default SD card recording times

    Wondering how one calculates amount of recording time on different size SD cards? Hoping to use a canon power shot to record hunt/shoot, but want to be sure to have enough card, and don't trust retailers enough

    Their's a number on the card inside a circle on the right side of the card. MY cannon called for a 10 ( for better quality videos ) but I always ran 4's in the trail cam. I went from more than 198 minutes to 110 minutes in a 8 GB card on the trail cam. I haven't tried the camera for videoing yet. Hope this helps.

    I found this formula:
    https://dashboardcamerareviews.com/video-recording-time/

    "If you just need a quick approximation of the total recording time in hours, of a dash cam or any other digital video camera, you can use this quick formula:

    2*GB⁄Mbps
    In other words, take the memory card capacity in GB, divide it by the recording bit rate, and multiply the result by 2.
    The result will be about 10% less than the actual recording time."
