With a class 10 speed SD card, my T3i will only shoot photos, but shuts down on video. I've been using 32GB class 4 cards lately, simply for photography. The manual says use a class 6 SD card, or higher, when shooting video for proper recording. Does anyone have any suggestions on why its shutting down on me? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for replying diverhank! The only problem is I can shoot video with a class 4 with no problem, which is slower, but a class 10 shuts it down. Does anyone think the class 10 is too high?
A class 10 should work just fine. Not unless you have a low quality brand, a mini-card with an adapter, or too many GB for the camera to know what to do with and format properly.
Thanks Waddizzle! This Canon is high quality. That much I know. The class 10 card is a 32GB, but so is my class 4, so class 10 shouldn't have any issues. Its difficult to find a class 6 locally, so that's why I'm even using a class 10 card.
Doh! Channeling my inner Snoop Dogg, 'My bad, Waddizzle my shnizzle'. I misunderstood you.
Thanks everyone for your advice. It turns out that someone had used the card, formatted it for their camera, but didn't tell me. I thought it was a new SD card when it was given to me. kvbarkley's suggestion of a low level format prompted me to do a format since I had nothing to lose. Then I find out that there's 8GB of footage on the card that I couldn't see due to the camera shutting down when switching to video (and playback didn't work either).
Problem solved. Brainstorming is still the best problem solving method! Thanks again everyone!
