Hi I have checked the FAQ and not seen this mentioned but no doubt it has been somewhere, if so apologies. I never knew until after purchase, of the ability of the PV500 to be used as a video recorder by recording to a SD card. Not having any SD cards I wondered if anyone had tried this feature and what the results were like before lashing out on cards that wont fit my camera. It looks like a real bonus feature and wonder why more is not made of it in the sales info or talked about here ?. Could it be that its not all that ? Appreciate info from those who know. Thanks. Mick.
