Re: 70d - movie recording has been stopped automatically

UPDATE - Still no problem with my Samsung card. Buy the same one I said on my post. At least it is working VERY WELL with my Canon 70D.

Re: 70d - movie recording has been stopped automatically

[ Edited ]

Canon EOS 70D spec and settings says that it can record up to 29.59. no matter what settings and card you use it will not increase.

you can try it by choosing lowest resolution with lowest frame rate it will record max 29.59.

it will stop before the time only if you have card speed issue. i am using only a SDHC class 10 adata Apacer with 10MBps write speed and i can record upto 29.59 with settings 1080/25 both all-i and ipb compression mode. though Canon recommends cards more than 20MBps read/write and UHS-1 but it is working well for me.

make sure you are using at least Class 10 with 10MBps Write. I've already tested with class 4 card and found interruption while recording.

for memory cards, be aware from duplicates. there are lots duplicate SD cards for well known brands.

I have made the world's shortest video on how to fix this issue...

Re: 70d - movie recording has been stopped automatically

Clearly, some of you are encountering legitimate issues (recording should NOT stop after 12 seconds or whatever).  Most of you (and I lump myself into this latter group) are, however, probably encountering an apparently intentional limitation of the hardware.

 

To address the memory card, per page 3 of the 70D's user manual, the required read/write speed is 20MB / second; anything with an equivalent or faster write speed should work just fine, and I can say with confidence that 30MB / second cards from Lexar and SanDisk work without issue.  As noted by several posters here, manufacturers play pretty fast and loose with their specifications - the trick is to find a card with a 20MB / second write speed, which can be significantly harder than it should be.  Using Lexar as an example, their own web site says that their 100x, 200x, and 400x cards will read at 15MB/sec, 30MB/sec, and 60MB/sec (respectively) - and that "write speeds will be lower" (they do not say how much lower).  You have to move to their 600x cards to get guaranteed minimum sustained write speed (of 90MB / second).

 

Unfortunately, even if you have a card that's up to the task of video recording, you still have another hurdle to clear. The camera itself is officially limited to just 29 minutes and 59 seconds per clip.  This is reflected in the camera's own menu and in the user manual on page 266.  That said, however, my own experience has been that it's only the first clip which is limited to 29:59 and that subsequent clips in the same session (no still captures, no switching away from movie mode), though split into 4GB chunks, will only be limited by the card's and/or the battery's capacity.  I guess I should be thankful, but I find this inconsistency to be frustrating.

 

Hopefully this saves some of you some money and heartache.

But as I (and many others) understand the situation, your frustration is only indirectly Canon's fault. Canon limits the video capability of its still cameras to keep them from being taxed as video cameras by countries of the European Union. If the criteria for that distinction seem arbitrary and inconsistent, you should probably blame the EU.

I use Micro MSD 32GB with the speed of 90Mb/sec and it does stop after a short time.

DANNY, I NOW HAVE 2 PROBLEMS

 

WHILE TESTING THE "AUTOMATIC RECORDING STOPPING" 

 

I WAS RECORDING A LIVE CHURCH SERVICE TO TEST A DIFFERENT QUALITY SETTING TO SEE IF THE CARD WOULD RECORD LONGER USING MEDIUM OR SMALL SETTINGS....  I CHANGE THE SETTING TO THE SECOND TO THE LAST RESULTION AND THE RECORDING STOPPED AFTER A WHILE OF RECORDING. THEN I CHANGED THE RESULTION TO THE LOWEST SETTING AND WHILE RECORDING VIDEO IT SEEMED TO TAKE LONGER TO STOP RECORDING.

 

THE NEXT DAY TO CHECK MY FINDINGS, I WENT TO TURN ON MY CAMERA AND IT WOULD NOT POWER ON WITH BOTH THE A/C ADAPTER AND WITH 2 DIFFERENT BATTERIES..... SO NOW I CANT EVEN USE MY CAMERA AT ALL... I PURCHASED IT IN 2013 FROM B&H  PHOTO AND IM NOT SURE IF IM STILL UNDER CANONS WARRANTY OR NOT...

 

SO I CAN TEST THE VIDEO BY USING ANOTHER CARD READER BUT THATS THE LEAST OF MY PROBLEMS... I CANT GET THE CAMERA ON!!!!!

 

BUT THE CARD IS AN SANDISK ULTRA PLUS 64GB / 48MB

 

MY EYES EVEN WITH GLASSES ARE BAD, I CAN BARELY READ THE ICONS ON THE CARD BUT I SEE A 1 WITH A U, XC1, IT HAS A 10 WITH A C...

 

HERE IS THE LINK TO THE IDENTICAL IMAGE

Re: 70d - movie recording has been stopped automatically

I was having this problem as well.

My 70D would stop recording after a few seconds two times then it would seem to work till I powered down, then turn it back on and it would stop after a few seconds.

 

I chaeck my card which is a class 10 45mb/sec, then I notice the lock switch on the side of the card was ever so slightly moved off of the unlocked position. It wasnt locked but it also wasnt in the fully unlocked position.

I made sure it was in the unlocked position fully and have not had the video stop since.

 

Im sure this isnt the issue for everyone, but worth checking.

If your having the recording issue stopping after a few secionds I would take the card out and flip the switch to lock and then back to unlock and try again. As mentioned earlier, it may be a issue with the card not spinning up to speed initially and the switch partially flipped was making mine bind? or it was a ghost.....
