The Users Guide for this camera can be found here:
    http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/4290837111.PDF
Page 86 has "typical" record times for various SD card sizes and quality levels.

Please note that movies are stored in a compressed format.  As such, a recording of a white wall will run a LOT longer than a recording of a large, multi-colored environment that is in constant motion.

About thirteen (13) hours. :-)

I agree with aadih... a 32GB card might hold 18 hours or more of video, but regardless of the mode (HQ, SP, LP) chosen, in the Tips section of the manual it notes,
"The maximum continuous recording time of
movies is approximately 13 hours.

The manual also indicates that minimum record time in HQ is 416 minutes, which is just under 7 hours.  I guess the "right" answer depends on whether you are looking for minimum time, maximum time, or "typical" time.
