    I'm going to a festival next week and don't have a memory card yet for my 620, I am planning on wiping everything that isn't important off it so I can film some acts

    How long roughly could I record for? If nobody knows I'd be willing to test it but also wondered how hot the sensor may get if used for long periods of time

    I'd advise you to buy a memory card of 16/32 Gigs to avoid disappointments, even a small 1 minute video (in 1080p) could eat up as much as 100-115 megs, 720 should be closer, I think a 30 minute video is around 800MB or so?. Since you are recording on the phone (5+/- Gigs Available), you may end up with no memory left after 2-2.75 hours or so~!
    Enjoy your festival and let your phone witness it , buy a memory card for a few more quids and I'm sure you'll be a happy camper :)

    Thanks for your reply, that's is fairly long tbh I was expecting less. I just want to film each act I watch for 5-10 minutes so it should be adequate. Can't wait to put theses HAAC microphones through their paces

    at 720p the video size is about 1.3 mb for 1sec video. So a 10min recording would take up about 800mb. So you do need a memory card.
