I bought a T3i body recently.

I just picked up a Sony SDHC 16GB card. It said its recommended for HD video shooting and so on.

It's rated class 4.


When I'm shooting at the highest available quality for the T3i, it records for about 5 seconds and then I get a message saying video recording has been automatically stopped.. so that's a bit annoying. At lower resolution options in video mode it doesn't seem to have this problem.

I did a bit of research about it and it seems like my card is not powerful enough.

Well it costed $35 bucks so not surprised.


I would like to order a new one online, 16 or 32GB.

What's something that will work for a resonable price?


thanks.

Yep. Canon recommends at least class 6, but might as well get a class 10, they're not crazy expensive anymore.

Never buy cards form eBay. You have a high chance of getting a fake. Spend the extra $10 and buy from a reputable dealer.

Looks like those are sold out. I visited a future shop near me and they didn't have any left on the shelf as well.

Just ended up ordering a Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC for $50 shipped.

SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDXC UHS-I Memory Card, Up to 95MB/s Read/90MB/s Write Speeds (600x)

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …e_Pro_64GB_SDHC​_SDXC.html (external link)

My testing last night.
5GB file R/W test (limited by my laptop’s card reader) 76MB/s read, 72MB/s write.

Previous Sandisk card has 45MB/s read, 41MB/s write. This allowed a burst of 8x continuous shots @ 5.3 shots per second, then 1 shot per second thereafter capturing RAW+JPG each shot, ie 33MB per shot. (will also allow 50x shots continuous JPG only).

But, this new 90MB/s Write card has transformed my 18Mpix CANON 60D camera. Allows 8x RAW+JPG shot initial burst, then a just perceivable pause (eg 0.25sec), then another 6x RAW+JPG shot burst before slowing down. Effectively 14x RAW+JPG shot continuous bust now = 460MB captured to the camera’s buffer just in 3.5 seconds ! This is a huge improvement. And the camera is ready for another shorter burst after another second pause. I had found the 8x shot burst limiting for kids sports.

18Mpix RAW only – now is 15x shot continuous burst (no pause) before slowing down.

VIDEO: The change here is the recovery time when banging of still shots during video. The cycle time is much shorter and little of the video is lost now (was typically 1sec of video lost – intrusive for sports).

From 8x shot burst (also CANON’s specs) to 15x shot burst - Best camera upgrade ever.

I have the same Class/Capacity card as Pepster posted but in the 16gb flavor. It was $50 on sale (from $80) at Best Buy. Haven't had any issues with video since I returned the Class 6 SanDisk.

I've been able to get away with a class 6 card, but I always use my SanDisk Extreme 16 GB SDHC 30MB/s card. I have never had any buffer issues with it.

I would not order from an ebay vendor. SanDisk is the most counterfeited media card out there and ebay is rampant with counterfeit. I've seen many reports of cards being sent back to SanDisk being returned as "Not one of ours, sorry".

Right now B&H has SanDisk Extreme HD video 16GB cards for $26 and change. I just got a couple to fill out the media case packed with my T3i even though I've been ordering the Extreme Pro cards for my 60D. It doesn't really need the extreme speed of the 95MB/s models but I look at it as a bit of "futureproofing".

SanDisk is one of the two most reliable brands on the market. Hoodman RAW is the other I see almost no trouble reports on.
