"Why would you need to keep the videos so short, Kent? I haven't needed to with my phone."
Long videos are usually boring. The next time you watch a movie, time each shot. You will find that the average length of a shot is less than 10 seconds, more like 5 seconds. A 1 minute panning shot of a city view is a real snoozefest, imo. A 10 minute video of your baby sleeping can be summarized in a 10 second shot.
I stopped shooting videos years ago, especially when everything went digital. I did not like dealing with hundreds of little digital video clips. I actually preferred using the old 8mm tape. I would only take 10 to 30 second shots. A kids birthday party or other significant event comprised 5 or 10 shots and the whole video event may total about 2 - 5 minutes. I edited as i videoed. If it was a good or interesting shot, I kept it. If it was a bad shot, i just rewound and recorded over top. I usually fit a whole year of events into one single 90 minute videotape. I only own about 11 videotapes in total. I converted all of my tapes into digital and put in some titles and index. I figure when i am old and invalid, i can watch these old videos of my family, events and trips. After my kids grew up, i was no longer interested in video because the action was less interesting. Maybe if and when there are grandkids, I will take it up again. For now, I just spend my time taking thousands of photos on my vacation.
