How long does the battery last if shooting only HD video? What about memory consumption for HD video?

It varies on conditions. If it's pretty cold out, I can only get about a 1/2 hour worth of HD on 1 battery, but when it's nice out, I usually get double that easily. I got the battery grip and an extra battery because it helps out so much. Plus you get a AA magazine clip which has gotten me an extra 40ish mins of video using energize e^2 lithiums. As far as capacity, it stops after 4GB of recording. Yesterday I shot a 5:29min clip and it took up exactly 1.78GB on 24p, so it’ll limit you to about 12min for 4GB.
