    I recently purchased the em1 to shoot movies (non professional)
    However, that I cannot start and stop continually within the same file. What am I doing wrong

    Nothing wrong because it will start a new file each time you stop & start again (at least that is how I know it) & you can join all the shorts later in editing.

    All digital video cameras work this way, it is normal. Video cameras make what are called video clips, each one is a file. You combine and edit clips to make a movie.
     
  4. I don't think you can "pause" recording and then continue within the same file. Also note that there tends to be a 4GB file limit and in the EU there is a 30 min file limit, both of which result in split files when recording.
