File size - Sony FDR-X3000

Hello,

Anybody who can tell if you get one big file (> 4GB) when shooting long time with the FDR-X3000 and are using an SDXC-card? According to a note in the web manual you get 4 GB slices when using an SDHC-card.

try using the supplied Action Cam Movie Creator to transfer the file. Usually when transferring process, the file will be merged again.

Alternatively (personally never been tried with action cam), you can try Catalyst Browse

Or Sony PlayMemories (not sure if it is compatible)

Thanks for advice! I also received an answer from Sony support indicating that recording to an SDXC card should not divide the material into 4 GB slices.
