Many newer camcorders automatically create a new file once the 4 GB limit is reached, but this is a 2009 camera. My regular camcorders are even older. They are flash memory camcorders, but the picture has those NTSC scan lines like you get when you convert a VHS tape to digital format using a video capture card.
The GoPro and Contour cameras suck as bad as a cell phone at night, so I only use them for daytime rides. A friend of mine calls them "8-5 cameras".
