Recently bought a HF 800 to replace a failing HF 400 (kept recording green, flickery screen - suspect the lens/sensor is going).
When I put a 8gb SD card in the 400, it shows the time remain on the LCD screen (as does the 800), but when I put a 32gb SD card in the 800, the time remaining display is not there (the 400 will display time remain with a 32gb SD though).
I can access the time remaining on the 32gb SD in the 800 if I go to the settings (shows 2hr remaining on an empty card), but it won't display time remaining on the LCD screen. Confused!
Any help would be great! 🙂
Are you using full-sized cards, or micro-sized cards with adapters?
I can't though think of a reason why that info wouldn't show. Perhaps it's due to the size? And that anything higher than 8 GB (or perhaps 16 GB?) wouldn't show?
Yes - it is a full sized SD card. I also have an 8gb SD that will show time remaining on both units.
I wonder if it gets to a low enough remain time, then maybe the time remaining will show up? It's just odd the 800 won't display it, but the 400 will?
I know its not the 800 itself, as I have seen videos on the max SD card the 800 will take (apparently it will use a 500+gb SD card) and during the video, you can see there is no time remaining display on the LCD when using a large SD card.
