12 hours of video is a lot! A Whole Lot!!
It takes a long time to get 12 hours of flight time, let alone 12 hours of video.
Just looked at seven Mavic Mini videos. From two minutes to 14 minutes in length [rounded to quarter or tenth of minute]
.485 to 3.4 GB in size.
The average is about .26 GB per minute
So a 128 GB card would hold about 490 minutes or eight hours.
Assume real bright sunlight uses more room than low light conditions. Maybe not.
I don’t think you would want to fill up a card, or even get close, without downloading the stuff. Never know what might happen. Lose the drone and you lose the card.
And not sure how full I have ever filled a card.
It is easy to Format the card and start out again with a empty one.
In fact it is more of a job for me to remember where the ‘Format’ deal is on the controller, than to do the format.
Also it does not take long to fill many laptops with drone stuff, especially video.
Back in 2015 when I started with a drone, the laptop I was using was full in short order.
So I go to the Apple store and buy another $1000- laptop - Dedicated drone computer.
About 30 days later the new one is telling me it is full. Thinking something is wrong with it, I go to the Apple service department.
Nothing wrong - It is just full.
They tell me about this deal, I think the proper name is External Hard Drive.
Stores 2 T of stuff, that is 16.6 times my laptop. Cost about $120-. Now about all my drone stuff is on the Lacie.
