Memory card suitable for shooting HD ???

Hello there,

I've just bought a Canon SX210 & have an 8GB sandisk memory card (SDHC Class 2).

I was attempting to shoot films in HD last night & after around 25 secs the film would automatically stop. There is plenty of room on the card & i can shoot subsequent films after the film stops.

I'm confused! Can anyone shed some light on why this would happen? Is the class of memory card insufficient for HD film?

Any information appreciated, i've looked on google but it's a world of jargon out there!

You should check your manual. It probably recommends at least a class 4 card. That's what's recommended for my SD960 when recording HD

Did you think of looking at the manual - perhaps page 32 might help?

I had the same problem until I switch for a class 6 sandisk HD SDHC, with class 2 you will see a cache warning on lcd, a five steps gray icon wich become red when the cache can´t keep writing on card

You're using a class 2 card.. which is slooooow.
I just bought 2 of these (for 19.00 each. now they're 22.00)

They tested almost a full meg higher on write speed than my sandisk extreme class 10 cards.

Hope it helps!

Thank you, that clears that matter up then!

I did check my manual which had bugger all info on cards suitable for HD filming... Just so you know i'm not lazy!

I did look at the manual actually & read all pages regarding cards... It just said which types of cards are compatible, nothing about classes of cards & how that affects shooting times etc...

Anyway my question has been answered now, thank you.

Hmmm, the last line on p 32 (the last bit in the 'Shooting Movies' section) says "Recording may stop ... on some memory cards. SD Speed Class 4 or higher memory cards are recommended".

Sorry, but I think that giving a reference to the correct page in the manual is answering the question. Almost exactly like giving a link to a thread - which is what the rule you quote suggests is the correct behaviour. I suppose I could have typed the whole thing out - but surely it's not asking too much for the OP to actually do a little work to find it?

Bottom of page 103. "SD Speed Class 4 or higher memory cards are recommended."

I'll agree with Frank that a page reference should be sufficient and is indeed helpful, which is why I didn't say anything. The answer is on p. 32, as well as on p. 103, which contains the exact same warning.

Yep i'm a fool, it's totally in the manual, what can i say!

In my defence none of the page refs to memory cards in the index of the manual have the info i was looking for...

Anyway, just glad my camera isn't faulty!

Thanks for the help.
