I have used a Canon DSLR for over 10 years, but it was an old school Rebel X. I recently upgraded to a Rebel T7 for the video benefits (it was all I can afford at the time), hoping to be able to use the video option for my YouTube videos on my art, while still having an awesome camera to continue my photography. I am totally new to videography and been learning along the way. Just learned about the limits yesterday.
My card is the PNY 256GB Elite-X Class 10 U3 V30 microSDXC Flash Memory Card. Still only got a little under 12 minutes of recording time. Even at 4GB, there's still plenty of room to do more 12 minute segments. I try to restart the recording and I can hear the camera start up, but there's never any other clips in there but the first one. So, can you not record more than one clip at a time and edit them together later? I'm so confused!
I also tried installing both the Canon EOS Utility and Canon Webcam Utility to my laptop without much success, hoping to record from my laptop through my Adobe programs. Couldn't figure either out. EOS Utility wouldn't connect with my camera and Webcam Utility wouldn't even start up. I tried every file that came with it but none of them even opened a program. I have both the HDMI and the USB cables connected as well, though at the time I tried the programs, I only had the HDMI connected. I had to find my old USB cable that came with my Rebel X, since one didn't come with the T7.
Sorry. I know this thread is super old, but I'm late to the party lol. I didn't want to invest in a camcorder because, well, my camera really needed an update (and I got to donate my older one to my daughter to encourage her photography itch) and they are just so expensive! I just really hope someone can help me.
