512 GB is the largest SD card at present.
Somewhere around the 300$ US mark.
Will be interesting to see what 2027 brings.

8 for me before the sphere starts to flatten.
Just as aside observation, I quite liked the 28 and 32 for depth of just the small area at the center of the cone.
Better than 8.

As a thought. Right click on the shortcut or the app etc and use "troubleshoot compatibility" then troubleshoot program / The program worked in earlier versions etc / give it a run as Windows 7. It may be that it doesn't play well with W10. Helicon and Zerene have trials give one of them a spin, if ...

I've used VLC for another purpose where I wanted to capture every 5th etc frame.
It will capture all frames.
Worked perfectly.
It's a great video player to have around, not much it won't play.
Of course being free is another added bonus.
I doubt you will be disappointed.

It works for me but with some "ghost" around our right side legs antennae.
As an experiment could you put them up with the images reversed to see if eye / handedness makes a difference as to how we see things.
Interesting experiment.
I'm right eye and hand dominant.
