Can we not Pause while recording Video??

My PB 32GB records very nice video.  However, when recording my son's ball games, I'd like to be able to "Pause" during "Time Outs" or "Half Time", etc.  Nonetheless, there does not seem to be a Pause button or any way to simply pause and then re-start the video.  The only option seems to be to Stop the video (eg during half-time), then re-starting it.  One would then have to edit the "pieces" together to make one whole video.  This sucks!!  Any help or suggestions?  Blackberry, RIM, are you Listening?  How about a firmware/software update?!

  Also, what gives with the really crappy file management in the photo albums??!!

Good idea. If Tarrantino had used the pause button instead, he might have made Pulp Fiction with the scenes in the right order.


Pesky editing software. 


By the way don't know how long your games last but at 720p the max is 1 hr 5 mins approx, and at 1080p it's 33 minutes.

No you can't pause. the only thing you can do is create a few short videos and then merge them together to build one video in 'Story Creator'
