gianluk - as stated in the review, if you select Motion JPEG mode, the maximum length is when the file reaches 2GB. If you're using AVCHD though, Panasonic says you can keep filming until you run out of memory. Sadly I was unable to really test this as I had nothing bigger than a 2GB card to use with the camera - like others, I'd like to see what happens if you feed it a 16 or 32GB card!
As noted in the review, there's also a 15 minute clip limit for European models due to tax reasons - ie, any longer and its classed as a camcorder.
Hello. The reviews on this site are really great with lots of good details. Though I'm curious if anyone knows is there something that differentiates the TZ7/ZS3 when it comes to if the model has that 15 minute video clip limit (European model) or if it has no limit (US model).
Is it something as simple as models named "TZ7" all have the limit, but "ZS3" models all do not, or something similar?
I'm just trying to gather the facts before possibly buying, as the store I went to sells it as a ZS3 but told me there is the limit on video recording length (which I knew was on Euro models, but I'm not in Europe), so just looking for some help clarifying since I couldn't find the info online.
