I have a question over how to continuously record on my panasonic camcorder so when I transfer the video onto my computer so ideally the entire video is in one clip as opposed to 2-3 separate files. I typically record clips that are around an hour and a half to two hours so ideally I would like to have the entire video in one file when I transfer it. A few months ago I was able to capture about 47 minutes before it rolled into a new file clip, but now the camera can record max 22 minutes before going into a new file. Is it an issue with the camera or the sd card, I’m wondering how to fix it if possible

The type of videos I record are in a MTS format would it better to switch to mp4?

From what I can determine the SD card has a 4gb limit. It’s this that’s creating the multiple clips in your recording. You don’t say what camera you are using but it’s quite possible that the manufacturer recommends download software that will stitch together the clips when importing them to your computer. If not, look on-line for similar software.

Take a look at https://www.reddit.com/r/videography/comments/4zazmj/does_anyone_know_if_the_panasonic_hcv770_hd/ It appears that the 4gb limit is imposed by the SD card. I have a Sony NX5U that also records in the .m2ts format and it has the same behavior as your camera.
