    I am going to be filming a project with a friend who has a GX7, I was wondering how long can a GX7 continously shoot video for? And, how long can the battery last shooting video?

    In AVCHD, there is no time limit if you own a North American model (NTSC). In mp4, the standard 30 minutes limit applies.

    Regarding the battery limit, the GX7 isn't it's strongest suit, and I have never tried shooting till it drops, but you definatly could do over an hour per battery. I'm gonna guess anywhere between 1.5hr and 2hr. If you plan for a very long shooting, I'd recommend a grip for a second battery.

    Thanks, we found the answer. As for battery life, we shot for over an hour with a GX8 and the battery was still well charged.
