Samsung hmx-f90 camcorder Hi. Just bought a F90 camcorder

Samsung hmx-f90 camcorder

Hi. Just bought a F90 camcorder with a 32gb SDHC card. I notice that it records in 20 minute segments. I have used the Samsung intelli -studio to join clips which is seamless. However the course that I am on at university requires me to submit a tape of a therapy session of 1 hour that has not been edited in any way.

Is there a way of getting the camcorder to record in one long uninterrupted file? I read that moving to a SDXC card may solve the issue?

Many thanks


Unfortunately, this model will not record continuously for more than 20 minutes regardless of the memory card due to the digital video format that it uses.

Please see the information from the camera's manual:
