I’ve made this mistake many times but not for a long time. It mainly happens if you are doing a lot of start-stop recording, trying to catch short bits of action and often in a rush. So I should have noticed that all of these things were going to happen tonight.
What happens is that you miss-press the record/pause button one time, and from then on (unless you notice the on screen information) you end up recording when you think it is paused and then pausing the camera when you think you are recording. So annoying!
Now I didn’t loose everything, but I thought I should say that if anyone who thought they were being filmed tonight don’t end up on the final project – sorry, but I’m an idiot.
