Just got my Canon EOS Rebel T3i several weeks ago and I had my first opportunity to shoot a video at a friend's retirement party. I have years of experience with Canon DSLR's, but none that could shoot a video. I've always shot a video on a camcorder. And I thought it was nice that I can now take photos and shoot videos with the Canon T3i. Needless to say, I was quite shocked when the camera stopped recording through someone's speech.
After examining the MOV file at home, I noticed the file size is 4 GB. Ah, that's the typical file size limit of FAT32. The video was shot at the highest resolution at 30 FPS. Video lasted 12 minutes and 5 seconds.
Lesson for pitfall #1: time your video shoots. Stop the video at the right moment and start a new video to get around the file size limitation.
For example, the speech at this retirement party wasn't that long, just lots of them. I should have created a new video for each speaker, rather than one video for all of the speeches. The Canon T3i starts and stops recording as soon as you push the record button, so a quick stop and start in between speaker changes is easy to perform.
