I need an hour+ but my PowerShot only records a maximum of 20 minutes in FHD. Is there a way to extend the length of a video recording session?
Do I need a different Canon camera to get longer videos?
Another solution would be a camera that allows starting and stopping videos remotely with Camera Connect or another tool.
TIA for any suggestions!
Cheers - Bob

There are two limits. Maximum record time, which is 30 minutes. Maximum files size, whichi I believe is 4GB.

For working with no limits* for video, it's best to use dedicated video equipment (camcorder, cinema camera).
* limited only by space on cards and available power.

According to experiments by Gordon Laing of Camera Labs, the R3 can record up to 6 hours of 4k 25P video - mind you it will cost a packet, and may take a while to deliver, but it might be worth comparing to a dedicated video camera.
