On my 64gb iPhone 4s which has 27 gb of free space, I recorded an 18-minute video. I know it was recording...the timer was running and all just like the hundreds of iPhone videos I've filmed over the years. When I went to my photos and videos, it's not there! My only thought is, is there a limit on the length that can be recorded? I'm really pissed!

I have had videos go missing before. When that happened to me they came back by turning the phone off and back on.

I don't know what happened, but there is no limit to recording length that I know of, barring storing space and battery life. I've recorded hour long videos.

I have some camera apps that place photos and videos in its own storage area and not the Camera Roll.

If you used a non-Apple camera, poke around in the app you did use.
