60d movie recording stopped automatically

The T3i movie recording stopped automatically the first time I tried to use it.  Did you have the same problem with your Canon 60d – 60d movie recording stopped automatically?

You’re so excited to try out the movie option on your new camera, but it records for about 4 seconds and stops. You read through your manual trying to figure out what setting is turned off or on. Then you turn to Google luckily it’s a simple solution and you don’t have to return the camera!

You need a new SDHC Card. I bought the PNY 16GB Flash Memory Card SDHC Class 10. The problem was my old SD card was a class 4 just not enough umph to handle the HD movie. I see a lot of people  have the 32GB card class 10 SDHC card! I  wouldn’t buy less than the 16GB since the HD video files are pretty huge!

I do believe it has to be a Class 6 or better to run HD videos. Let me know if I am wrong on that!

  2. Such a bummer to hear… For me switching the card worked. I bought the same exact card as you. I am Googling around seeing what other answers I can find for you!

  3. Can’t find to much information for you! The only other thought I found while Googling just now was talk about extreme situations. If you’re shooting in bright light it might happen or going from extreme bright to dark. Even read something about extreme noises. The other option would be to buy a different SD card perhaps there is something up with that one. Not sure… Let me know if you get it working! Would love to post your solution for anyone else that might run into the same situation!
