TROUBLE Shooting Video

Hi,

 

My camera is a Canon M3 and recently it keeps stopping half way when shooting videos. It will show a bar at the side and when it stops, it will have 'busy' writen for a long time. HELP ME. ;(52591398_399822750779869_8007558900930838528_n.jpg52480987_316243012410941_8745108779697176576_n.jpg

It sounds very much like a slow memory card, what type of card are you using ?

Hi. I use the SanDisk memory card I think a 34 GB . I’ve tried formatting the memory card but it still didn’t work

I guess you might mean 64GB.  You need to make sure that you are using a UHS-I SD card.  Most 64GB cards are UHS-II, which are not compatible with most Canon cameras.

Try another memory card, make sure it is one purchased from a reputable supplier. There are a lot of mis-labelled fake cards around, these are mostly purchased online.

You want a card with a U3 or V30 or higher rating. 

 

SDHC cards go up to 32GB. 

 

SDXC cards are 64GB or larger. 

 

Here’s a a good one.

Re: TROUBLE Shooting Video

Since no one's asked yet, are you using a full size SD card or a micro SD card with an adapter?

From the manual:

1920 x 1080 (29.97 fps/23.98 fps/25.00 fps): 172.6 MB/min.1280 x 720 (59.94 fps/50.00 fps): 115.4 MB/min.640 x 480 (29.97 fps/25.00 fps): 22.4 MB/min

 

173/60 = 2,88 MB/s.

 

Your card has 10MB/s as lowest write speed. It should work fine if it isn't broken. Have you also tried to Low level format the card? From the manual page 138:

 

Perform low-level formatting in the following cases: [Memory card error] is displayed, the camera is not working correctly, card image reading/writing is slower, continuous shooting is slower, or movie recording suddenly stops. Low-level formatting erases all data on a memory card. Before low-level formatting, copy images on the memory card to a computer, or take other steps to back them up.
