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.

Mine was doing the same thing. I had a (SanDisk Ultra 32GB class 10 30MB/s) Memory card. You can go to your (menu) and turn down your (Movie Rec. Size) 640x480 30fps. Or you can buy a memory card that reads faster (Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB class 10 95MB/s) The number 95MB/s is how fast the memory card can read. You can go look at charts that tell you about how many MB/s your camera needs to record without shuting down. Mine had to be over 80MB/s so I bought one that had 95MB/s.
