Re: I am trying to take video with my Canon EOS 60D

segalmedia,

 

If the camera is overheating, you will probably see one or both of these icons appear in the LCD when the camera starts to get too warm (see attachment).  I also included another attachment of another icon you might be seeing on the LCD.  This is the buffer warning.  If this bar fills up, the buffer is full and the camera will stop recording to finish writing that data to the memory card.

 

Do you see either of these?

Re: I am trying to take video with my Canon EOS 60D

Thanks, I will try to recreate the issue.  I now have a 5d to act as my primary so the issue is less time sensitive, but still important.

The video recording will shut down even a class 10 card that is reaching capacity.  A class 10 card with room left on it may shut down as well if you have been doing many deleats without reformatting the card.

Hello Lisa! Please advice if you have fixed the issue with 60D buffering? I have the same bug and use 10 class if memory card as you. Did you do something special to recover it? regards, Dima

Re: I am trying to take video with my Canon EOS 60D

Hi Mykolas!

Could you please explain the following:

If so as you described and this issue is related to overheating of the camera, why other DSLR cameras like 70D or 600D that have the similar proccessors DIGIC4 do not suffer from such bug as unexpected video buffering? There are many friends of mine use these cameras with no any shadow of this issue.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,

 

D.

Do you see either of the buffer or temperature warnings on your LCD?  Try creating and recording in a new folder.

 

BTW, the overheating component would be the image sensor, not the processor.

Yes I do.

I see everytime before the video recording is stopped on LCD this buffering icon in progress as mentioned in previos post.

As described above, the buffer warning means that the write buffer is not keeping up, and is about to overflow.  To avoid overflow, the camera stops writing new data to the buffer, which means it stops recording video.

 

This strongly suggests that your memory card isn't fast enough.  Using a faster card, or a lower resolution video mode, may help.  I would first test a lower resolution video mode.  It's cheap, and doesn't cost anything, except for some time well spent.

Re: I am trying to take video with my Canon EOS 60D

Hi!

The main question that still turns me is why the buffer is aiming to overflow considering I use this card as shown below.

 Do you think it is not enough for camera 60D? Low resolution is a good Idea I think but why other cameras don't require this and record video as announced by CANON - HDQ.
