- How many pictures or videos camera can save to sd card ,like 32GB micro sd card? and how long is the battery life?
32GB micro sd card can save about 10,000 pictures, 3,000 1080P FHD video
Camera battery life is decided by how often camera start to work, if the camera takes a lot of high resolution video, the AA battery will run out power very fast,usually we recommend to change battery every 5~7 days, and you can connect to external power for a long time working.
