Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera ?

Hi there, I've just bought a DMC FX500 digital camera. In the movie mode when I've recorded say 30-40 secs of footage the remaining time always reverts back to 8m 27secs [using a 4GB card]. This should surely reduce and deduct the the time I have left after the video clip was recorded? Cheers any help welcom, PK
