There are some video limitation of one video session on k-x related to maximum file size:
1. Maximum file size of one video session limited to 4GB, this is FAT32 flash file system limitation.
2. With maximum video resolution 1280 х 720 (0.9M) and min video quality 1* - video file has approx ~23 minutes long, which correspond to 4GB filesize.
3. With maximum video resolution and maximum quality, video takes approx 12 minutes, which as usual correspond to 4GB filesize.
When 4 GB video file limit reached, video stopped automatically and you will need to switch on it again. Also in Video mode photo sensor can be overheated and in this case it also will stop video session.
But I think, anyway one set of AA accumulators will be enough for more than few hours of Video.
