Thread: 1 and a half minutes of video on Canon 600D....is that it?!?!

  1. Default 1 and a half minutes of video on Canon 600D....is that it?!?!

    Hey guys, something doesnt seem to be quite right with memory card. I have a Canon 600d memory card. It is only 8mb so not overlly great. Its cost me approximately 12 so pretty cheap.

    However, when i use movie mode on the camera, it records for about 1 and a half minutes then automatically stops. However, I can record a number of times for 1 and a half minutes. I am confused as to if it can record a few numbers of approximately one and a half minutes.........why does it keep automatically stopping?

    Thanks guys

    Johno

    I suspect that is the default setting which you can change in the camera menu. I doubt that it has anything to do with the memory card but 8 MB? Surely you mean 8 GB?

    If it's 8mb, I minute and a half sounds about right

    I still have a 500k (or is it 256k) SD card and that cost a lot, way back then. Indeed it wasn't that long ago.
    Another thought: Is there an interval timer that's set to 100 seconds, perhaps?

    OP says he can record several files on one card, - so doesn't that rule out the card is Full? Also, I'd expect the viewfinder to say "Memory card full". Very Odd.
    RTFM.
