I recorded an HD MOV video, but soon my DSLR begin to run out of power. In a hassle, I tried hard saving the video file and got success seconds before DSLR shut down. When I ran my HD MOV video after DSLR fully charged, I noticed the video was able to run but partially. It opened up with audio and video distortion. It runs for not more than 10 minutes but has a total size greater than 150 MB. I am sure my file can play for a longer period if its sound/video and header components get fixed.
