Workaround 4GB/25' video limit?

The 25 minute limit is set to avoid a higher tax in the European Union. Dedicated video cameras have, I think, triple the tax that an SLR shooting video is taxed.

Basic Tutorial Video

Shutter speed is the most important thing to set first. The rule of thumb is to set your shutter speed to twice the frame rate that you are shooting at. So if your frame rate is 24, 25 or 30 frames per second set your shutter speed to 1/50 or 1/60 of a second. If you are shooting at a higher frame rate to slow things down in post do the same thing. 60 frames per second gives 1/120 as a shutter speed, while 120 frames per second would be 1/250 as a shutter speed.

Set the aperture to a value that gives you the depth of field that you want to use. Avoid changing aperture while videoing as the noise of changing aperture can be picked up by the internal microphone.

Set the sensitivity (ISO) to the lowest value for your camera.

You will need to pre-focus your lens as Pentax cameras don't let you refocus while shooting video. You can always change focus manually while doing video.

I would usually shoot in manual mode so I can seen the exposure details on the rear screen, particularly the bar graph of over of under exposure.

If you are under exposed you can open up your aperture to a wider aperture or increase your sensitivity (ISO). You will need to find a combination that gives you the depth of field that you want at reasonable sensitivities (ISO). If you are still under exposed for your final aperture and sensitivity then you would need to add light, usually in the form of continuous light.

If you are over exposed you can close down your aperture to a smaller aperture or decrease your sensitivity (ISO). If you find you are still over exposed then adding a neutral density filter to you lens is the next step. A three stop ND filter will drop you three stops of over exposure and may get you into the right range to get a proper exposure.

I hope these things help you on your journey.

Regards

Chris

Simple answer - No. Unless the camera saved individual images that make up the double exposure.
