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!

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.
