The Panasonic LUMIX G9 has a maximum video recording time of 30 minutes, but only for some formats. That limit is also dependent upon multiple factors like camera settings, media storage size, camera power, and internal camera temperature. See details and notes below for more information.
Maximum continuous video recording times for the Panasonic LUMIX G9
1A new motion picture file will be created if the file size exceeds 4GB, but recording will continue without interruption.
2When using an SDHC memory card: A new motion picture file will be created if the file size exceeds 4GB, but recording will continue without interruption.
3When using an SDXC memory card: Files are not divided while recording.
The higher the bit rate value is, the higher the picture quality becomes. Since the camera employs the VBR recording method, the bit rate is changed automatically depending on the subject to record. As a result, the recording time is shortened when a fast-moving subject is recorded.
The maximum available continuous recording time will be displayed on the screen.
An increase of the camera’s internal temperature may cause recording to stop before the maximum recording time is reached.
