How to stop power saving with Canon HFM52 camcorder – turns off after 30mins!



Sometimes I need to leave my Canon HFM52 camcorder to film unattended (e.g. when making a speech).


I have turned off the power saving options in the control panel, however, the camera still switches off after 30mins which is annoying when filming for long periods.


Is continuous filming only possible when the power supply is connected to the camera? I have never tried this and only use the battery when filming on location.


Just wondered if anyone on here knows if there is another setting to prevent the automatic time out after 30mins.


Any help appreciated.
