I'm quite new to shooting videos with a digital SLR cameras. In the past, I've shot all my video on DV camcorders and I didn't realized that there would be a number of obstacles of shooting video on memory cards. My new Canon T3i came with a 16 GB SD Card. Shooting with it at the highest resolution and the highest frame rate was now big deal.
But one day, several weeks ago, I left my house and forgotten the memory card. Luckily I had a 8 BG microSD Card with an adapter in my bag, so I used that. Shooting photos with it was no problem. But when I switched to video, the camera keeps stopping the recording after a short time. After I got home, I compared the memory cards. The 16 GB card that came with the camera was a class 10 card. The 8 GB card was a class 6 card.
If you are going to shoot videos with the Canon T3i, be sure to get speedy cards. From the looking of things, you'll need a minimum class 10 memory cards from now on.

I've gotten a Class 6 card to work with a T3i after reformatting in camera. Without the reformat the card storage may be fragmented so both read & write access is slower.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to give that a try.
