Video Longer Than 15 Seconds on the VX8300

By default, the LG VX-8300 only shoots videos (Verizon calls them "FLIX") up to 15 seconds long. If you have a microSD card, however, you can enable it to take videos that are much longer, as long as your card will allow, in fact...

Do this by going to the Settings & Tools menu, selecting Memory, choosing Save Options, choosing FLIX, and switching from Phone Memory to Card Memory. Then, go to Record Flix, press Options, select (3)Time Limit, and switch to Available Memory. The videos you shoot will now be saved to your memory card, and they can be as long as your memory card has space to allow.

I have been googling the entire UNIVERSE for a simple tutorial on HOW TO USE THE CAMERA feature on my brand new LGvx8300. I got two huge manuals included with it, and they both are chock-full of how Verizon can get more money off you from all those "Get-it-Now" features I am not interested in, but nowhere can I see any simple instructions on how to use the cam feature, and how to upload to a computer (since I am assuming that if I were to follow the instructions for sending to someone's email or Txt Msg, they will have another way of getting money from me). Any suggestions on where there might be a simple tutorial just for the use of the Cam feature?

Yes! I'm going to write a tutorial on picture taking in the next few days. For now, here's a primer: 1) Press the button with the camera icon on the right side of the phone to start up the camera. 2) Press OK to snap the shutter. 3) Then press Save or Erase depending on whether you want to keep the picture or not.
More details later, including tips on how to take better pictures.

There is already an article on this site discussing how to upload pictures to your computer.

Is there a limit on voice recordings? (ie voice notes) It seems like I get a lot of 3 second recordings by mistake. Any clue why?

The video recorder can record the voice also, or just the video part?
