Two HDRAS50, Recording time different 1) 2h 10m 2) 8h 44m

[ Edited ]

Camera 1) 18 months old, new battery 4.14 volts, shows 2h 10m on display line 3.

2) Brand new camera show 8h 44 m

 

I never use the tank. I ride bicycle mostly on the local  greenway (rnc3.com/greenway).

 

Formatted the 16 GB card again, nothing changed.

 

I go though both camera menu's side by side, they are set identical.

 

I'm looking for a sanity check.  Most of the time, things like this are my fault!

Sometimes it is embarassing to have been correct.

Yes, insanity! (egg on face)

 

With the first camera, I bought an external universal charger and a battery I never used.  I put that battery in the new camera so I did not have to wait on charging the new battery.

 

That battery has greater capacity... 1600 mah in lieu of 1240 mah.

One is surely not in the normal video mode but in LIVEstream mode.

I'm not sure what your complete question or comment is really about.

 

But these 1600 mAh batteries aren't good.  The 1600 is a lie.. it's more like 800 mAh. And they will fall off within a few months of use and be worthless.  I know, I have a few Wasabi knock offs.  1 hour 20 minutes in 1920x1080/30fps was about the start - then it just keeps dropping.  My Sony batteries still last over 1 hour 40 minutes.

Even with that battery capacity - the recording time does show the SD card space.

So one camera clearly is in livestream mode and not normal video mode.
