I-10 record movie time limit per video

hello. i have a pentax I-10

the problem is: i just can't record movie for over 11 minutes. doesnt matter the free size of my SD card...

i already have trying with a 2gb SD and with 16gb SD. the time limit is the same: 11:01

after reformat the 2gb SD (FAT file system) the time limit increased to 11:03 !!!
so the problem may because of the old fat file system
but if i format the SD to NTFS or exFAT does not recognized by the camera

any help accepted

Do you hit the 4GB file size limit? There's really no way around it that I know of.

You can record up to 2GB file size.
If you want to record for a longer time, you need to reduce the quality settings of the movie.

described on p125 of the optio i-10 manual, if you've lost it, it can be downloaded here:

thanx for your answers. i read at the manual that the size limit per file is only 2GB

that's the problem! but why? i have a 16GB SD and i want to record a video more than 2GB

even with my old cell phone (nokia 6086, released in 2006) i can record video with no size limit!

so what else can i do?? maybe if i update the firmware the problem fixed?

i think that if the camera accept another file system (not fat32) the problem may fixed
