Video Size and SD Card size?

(1/4) > >>

iambeetle:
Can someone give me some examples of the video sizes for an hour's recording, and a day's recording? For both HD and non HD videos?

I wonder what SD Card size should I buy for this camera.

Thanks!

It all depends on what you are watching. Outdoors? Inside? A lot of motion? static image?

Anyways, your camera supports up to 128GB.

The H264 compression in a DCS-2230 gives my 32GB card about 4-5 days of 24 hour recording looking outside. A previous firmware without H264 encoding on same settings is about 28 hours, depending.  If there is a lot of noise in the image - compression won't help.

If I were you I would just plunk down the $70 for the 202L as a decent sized SD card will cost you $20. And you wont get the continuous recording ability. I find recording to an SD card based on motion limits the duration of your recording and there is no way to change it. Some events may not be captured on motion but are relevant. IMO you are better off recording 24x7. If you have a spare USB HDD around it would help as you also need one for the 202L.

I wasn't aware that the 936L does not have continuous or scheduled recording feature... Those features are so basic and easy to do I assumed the camera would have it.

My plan is definitely recording 24x7 as the motion detection doesn't even work well. But spending another $70 and more for a HD box for something the camera should be able to do itself sounds almost unfair.

For that I am quite disappointed...
