In a round about way. Before your recording was captured on tape. If you camcorder uses a SD Card it is recorded to it for replay in the camcorder or you can transfer to a computer or TV or any device which will allow you to view it using an SD card.
Simple: divide the card's storage by the number of bytes in each of your pictures. Most 10 MP (megapixel) cameras generate photos of roughly 4.5 MB (megabytes) each. Divide the effective storage space of a 16 GB card (roughly 15 billion bytes) by 4.5 million bytes per picture, and you get (VERY roughly) 3333 pictures, each of which can be blown up to 16" x 20". It all depends on the resolution of your photos; if you shoot in .RAW (uncompressed) format, you'll use up the card far faster, since each image uses about ten times as much storage as a .JPG image. If you take 4 x 6 snapshots of only a few hundred megabytes, you might get over ten thousand pictures into a 16 GB card.
Sorry. I'm not a video guy or a tech. I shot DSLR. But according to description it says it will do High Speed Video.. I'm not sure how long a video you can shoot, but that would be determined buy you resolution
I used mine in a Sealife DC1200.With all due respect,see if Vivitar says anything regarding manufacturer's to not use. Even as my camera Mfgr had suggested Sandisc,this brand still worked fine.It,(Transcend) I've used in a Cannon camera as well. Hope this helps..
