*Most* of the things I've needed to record over the pandemic (which got me into videography) have been longer than 30 minutes.Not so sure about that myself. How many scenes are interesting enough that are 30 mins long?
Weddings (like a documentary recording)
Church Services/Sermon recordings
I realize there are lots of things that don't need long-form recording capability, but there are lots of things that do, and I've found cameras with artificial record time limits are more trouble than they're worth in those situations.
It was enough of an issue that I went and bought a used C300.
