it all depends.. on..

What resolution? (720/1080)
What format (avi, mp4, wmv, raw etc)
and how much compression that format is set to... Fine or Normal etc...

unless its a HDV cam, in which case.. HDV file sizes are the same as regular DV file sizes, so 1080i would be 12-13 GB an hour, and 720p would be around 12-13 GB for 90 minutes.

not sure about full '1080p' HD though...

As Ghozer quite rightly says, it depends on the resolution you want. On my Panasonic Full HD there are 5 resolution settings.They range from 2hrs 40 mins at top resolution to 13 hrs 40 mins at lowest resolution (32GB SD card). This Panasonic uses AVCHD compression mode. Hope this helps.

Take a look at the capacity of your current empty card and factor it up.

I think it's something like 15-20gb per hour.
