There are GX magazines that hold 800', which is about 22-minutes. Very popular for docs and tv series for obvious reasons. They load pretty much the same as thier 400' cousins. They don't work o the 54LTR though. They require a camera with the magnetic drive, XTRs and beyond... LTRs typically (some people might have upgraded) have the dog (geared) drive.
