Hello, Using the Supplied NP-FV50, a full charge on the battery will last approx 1 Hour and 15 minutes with average recording conditions on the highest resolution (HD). With continuous recording, the battery will last approx. Two and a half hours using HD.

For a longer life battery we would recommend the NP-FV100 (sold separately)
the NP-FV100 will give you over 5 hours of recording in HD with average recording conditions (Starting, stopping, zooming and so on) and almost 10 and a half hours for continuous recording in HD. Using standard definition will give longer life.

Question

does this have a direct youtube feature for downloading?

I want to buy this camcorder because of the optical lense. I know it's one of the best if not the best type of lense out there. Now the question is wether or not i can download my recorded videos to youtube directly from this video camera. I have read that other video recorders have twitter, facebook, and youtube software; i just need to know if it's easy to do and if it has the direct ability.

Yes, direct uploading to your favorite Social Media Site is easy once the included Picture Motion Browser software is installed. without the included software installed you will not be able to directly upload.

Question

Focusing

I bought this camera about 2 weeks, i have a problem about focusing, when i try to zoom more than 5x it becomes blurry, i know it's focusing for the Depth of Field, but it takes too long to become clear. I tried to zoom to maximum and it takes more than 20 seconds for it to becomes clear, it's on Auto mode, is there any other ways to speed it up? or even better, can i turn the focusing off?

Actual battery life is determined by two factors, recording conditions, and resolution. for example recording in Standard Definition when continuously shooting video without stopping or zooming will give you 165 minutes of recording time, where as typical recording conditions in HD starting, stopping and so on will give you roughly 75 minutes of recording time.
