The video shutdown usually occurs 4-6 seconds into shooting. It may happen 2-4 times in a row and then the next time it shoots perfect video. I recently returned from a cruise to Alaska. Why on a day cruise, taking pictures of whales, I talked to two other T3i Rebel users and they have the same problem. I don't use the video mode very often, but when I do, I expect it to work as well as the rest of the features in my T3i. I am very surprised that I cannot find other Canon users, in this forum, that have experienced the same problem.

Hello, I was wondering if the Pro card fixed this problem for you? I have a T3i and a Sandisk 32 GB class 10 card. Video usually shuts down after ~3 seconds a few times, then it will stay on for a longer video after 1-3 tries. I see the buffer meter on the side and it goes up to 2 dots then the video turns off.
This seems to happen regardless of how full the card is, how long the camera has been on, or environment (usually indoors). I format the card everytime I empty it.
I really don't want to buy yet ANOTHER card, but if it is fixing the problem, I might. I'm frustrated with missing video moments with my toddler due to this happening. I've read a lot of this issue happening on other forums with little consensus on why it really happens.
