No. That's what camcorders are designed to do.


Gripped 7D | 24-70 f/2.8L II | 70-200 f/2.8L II | 100-400L | 17-55 f/2.8 | lots of misc stuff

Fixed it for you. I've never had a camcorder that was designed to shoot for that length of time.

Our JVCs at work will record HDV for up to 8 hours with an external hard driver recorder... but probably not the price range the OP is looking at.

What are you recording OP that you want to record for that long in one take and with one camera?

Your best bet is to get two 7D's set up at alternate angles of what you are filming, and run continuing instances off each ending of the maximum allowed clip of each take.(right before the 14 min. period runs out on the clip, record on the alternate 7D and vice versa.)

If you can't have alternate angles in the video, then I can't think of any other solution with a 7D. This will also help capture a continuing audio capture with no interruption because one camera will always be recording..


7D, 400D - 24-70 f/2.8L - 70-200 f/2.8L - 50 f/1.2L - 40 f/2.8 - 10-22 f/3.5

Maybe it's a conference or something similar. OP didn't say they were going to showcase 3 1/2 hours of footage, might be for archival purposes.

And you can always create a highlight package after the fact. Can't edit what you don't have.

Really, my JVC GY-HD200/250's will record 11 hours of continuous HD video to their FireStore DTE drives…

Depends on the event, I have worked events where the speaker lineup ran up over 8 hours of taping.
