Re: T3i- Movie recording has stopped automatically

I just bought a brand new sandisk 'extreme pro' 32g card, and set the camera on a windowsill trying to record a jar. It still stopped recording after a few seconds.  It has done this with the last three cards I've tried in it. This is pretty much a brand new camera.

perusing the interwebs a bit more, i decided to give magic lantern a try. Seems to be working. (There goes my warranty). Also changed the framerate from 29.97 to 24, but, really Canon...if you're going to sell me a camera that claims to record 1080 29.97 on an sd card you should either sell it with a BIG disclaimer or provide cards that you know will work.

  • T3i- Movie recording has stopped automatically

    Hi, guys. I've never had this problem with my T3i/SD card until tonight, and I'm not sure what the problem is because I have the Sandisk Extreme Pro, 32 GB SD card that reads 95 MB/s. What could be the problem? The video stops recording after about 5-10 seconds if I'm playing my piano and it has to record me. My SD card has 17GB of space, so that can't be it, can it? Sadly enough, I don't have another SD card to test this with.
    I have also formatted the card again and it works better, but every other video or so, it stops recording automatically. For some reason it's only doing it when I'm recording myself doing something complex, such as playing drums or the piano.
    Any thoughts?

    If the camera stops recording after 5-10 seconds intermittently ("...every other video or so, .."), it is trying to tell you something.
    The camera has stopped the recording because it has been instructed to do so. You are confident that the shut-down isn't due to running out of space on the card so I'll discount that diagnosis. You have previously been able to get a good long recording of the same sort of subject successfully. That suggests that the card was reliable at one time but it doesn't mean it is still reliable.
    The camera might also shut the camera down if it senses overheating of the internal electronics. This is usually the case when filming a scene with a lot of action. You described that you film yourself drumming and I would think that would qualify as a fairly energetic activity. The reason for the overheating is that the camera uses a compression algorithm (mathematical code) to save the file. The more "changes" there are in a scene, the harder the camera works to stuff all that activity efficiently on your card. This hard work creates considerable heat. If you were to record yourself drumming and had just finished a 15 minute clip, it might be necessary to let the camera cool down before resuming shooting.
    Finally, the room temperature has a effect on how well the camera can shed the heat it builds up. If you had been filming is a realitively mild temperature and moved the camera to a higher temperature area (adding lights might create considerable heat), the camera will not perform as well as it previously did.
    Your camera has a way of telling you it is overheating. Check your manual (p 151) and if you don't have one, go online and get one.
    Good luck.

  • T4i Rebel error message "movie recording has stopped automatically"

    I was recording my client when suddenly I got a this error message "movie recording has stopped automatically" and I could not record video anymore. I am recording on a class 10 sandisk Ultra card. 720/60, EFS18-135mm lens. Never had any problems in the past. First I get a small veterical meter on the frame and then after 5 secs the recording stops with this error message. Please tell me it is opeartor error...I have had this camera for 2 years now and never had a problem. I tried multiple cards.
    thanks for the help,
    DM

    Either you or the person you spoke to at Canon was confused.
    What the camera requires for video purposes is a card which is "at least" Class 6 or faster.  The class designation is an indicator of the cards data transfer speed.  Class 6 actually means the card is capable of transfering data (either reading or writing) at "at least" 6 megabytes per second.  A Class 10 card can transfer data at "at least" 10 megabytes per second.
    The T4i is also compatible with "UHS-1" cards... which are significantly faster than eithe Class 6 or 10.
    The reason for requiring "at least" Class 6 has to do with how fast the camera is attempting to capture and save frames of video to the card.  The camera actually has an internal memory buffer which is very fast.  When you start recording, the data is being saved to that buffer... and simultaneously the camera also starts taking the data from the buffer and saving it to the memory card (which is slower).  If the camera is recording video only slightly faster than the card can record, then it will actually take a few minutes before the buffer is completely filled.  But at that point the camera has no choice but to stop recording because it has absolutely no place to save data ... the internal buffer is full and it can't empty the buffer because the memory card can't save data as fast as new frames of video are coming in.
    Faster is always better.
    Memory cards do actually wear out and develop errors over time.  This is normal.  A good card will re-map the bad blocks so they aren't used anymore... and this is why you should do a low-level format IN CAMERA (not using the computer).  Good cards also have a "memory leveling" technology to try to use all the blocks roughly an equal number amount.   This extends the userful life of the card.
    When replacing the card, do not skimp on quality!  I cannot emphasize that point enough.  Most times when someone brings up this issue... it's the card that is having problems and not the camera.   
    It's easy to produce forgery cards which look like a good brand but are not.  Buy GOOD cards from REPUTABLE dealers.  Do not shop for the cheapest website on the Internet with a questionable reputation in order to save a couple of bucks.
    Lexar brand and SanDisk brand are good. 
    When buying memory cards, I only buy cards from Lexar and SanDisk.  I also buy their highest end cards (by speed performance... not necessarily their biggest capactiy cards).  I buy the cards from dealers with a solid reputation.  This avoids the unpleasant error messages which always seem to happen at the worst possible time.

  • T3i 'movie recording has automatically stopped' and other ongoing and 'new' problems.

    I purchased a T3i in March of 2011 and within a year of purchase we started experiencing problems.
    Firstly - I purchased a three year Mack Warranty with this camera.
    By June of 2012, the 'movie recording has automatically stopped' problem was no longer our only issue. That month we lost a whole production day of video. There was no explanation. It was on the same card that we had used before and we sued it after. It was not a particularly hot shoot because we were inside and out frequently. All footage from that day was gone from the camera. I ran a recovery on the files; they were present, but they were unrecoverable. When this happened again a couple of weeks later, we threw away the card that it happened on and on the third event, We were using speed 10 cards only.
    On August 31st, I sent our T3i in to Mack who looked at it, couldn't duplicate the problem (movie recording auto stopped, much less data loss) and they got it ready to send back. I spoke with Mack support and got a supervisor to look more closely with a technician at the problem (I had sent a very detailed description of the problem) based on my description and a technician paying attention, they were able to duplicate the problem but not fix it. They sent it to Canon. Canon duplicated the problem and 'fixed' it. It was then sent back to Mack because they won't send directly to Mack's customer. Mack sent it back. I received it sometime after October 23rd. Note - that's no camera from 8/31 to 10/23 + a couple of days shipping. Nearly two solid months.
    'Movie recording automatically stopped' would not go away but we were not losing footage. I called Canon. Canon support told me that it could be a card speed issue and if not that, maybe a bad make or brand. They said that this is a problem with DSLR's or maybe rebels specifically and we would need to learn to deal with it - something about data capture and data block sizes. The problem is that when you're shooting a scene, it's not always just 'incidental' if you have to start over because of an error, is it? And is this how Canon's products are to work, really?
    In December, a white dot appeared on our sensor. We sent it in on Jan 10 and got it back sometime after Jan. 31st. Movie Recording Automatically Stopped is still occurring. It comes and goes. :Lately it's been infrequent.
    A little while ago I pulled the camera out to take some snapshots of a system I'm working on. No matter which mode, autofocus on, with the flash up, attempting to get an autofocus (depressing snapshot button 1/2 way) I get this strange electric sound and a flash. Autofocus will not engage. Again - no matter which mode - no autofocus, a strange electric sound and a flash. Movie recording works fine. But that's not the only capability of this camera, is it?
    Canon - it is apparent to me that we got a lemon. This will not work for my business any longer. Trying to get problems solved with this camera has been lengthy, disconcerting, painful. My disappointment has me throwing in the towel and asking - why the heck would I buy a Canon again much less the Mack warranty to go with it?
    Please give me a solution beyond going for another two months without a camera that comes back and develops a new problem within one to two months’ time.

    This problem has been posted online in many places & is a known and serious flaw with the T3i. How come Canon feigns ignorance & blames it on the card or file size? Why don't they post a positive solution or at least admit to the camera's shortcomings?
    The Canon tech rep is being disingenuous! The problem happens on and off to a lot of people using the same card!!! It has happened to me as well with me as well. Sometimes it records to the max limit & sometimes it just stops! Doesn't Canon do research into serious errors with their cameras?
    I'm sure they know of this problem & don't want to recall & fix their sh..ty camera.

  • "Movie recording has been stopped automatically"

    Recently, using my 60D in very cold Wisconsin weather, I've had the message "movie recording has been stopped automatically."  I've used my 60D in all kinds of temps but recently in Wisconsin the overnight temps are getting into the the minus single digits so when I go out to shoot homes in the early am it is cold.  I am using a SanDisk Ultra 16G 30mb/s 10.  It seems that once the camera "warms" up a bit, it shoots fine and I don't get the message.  This happens when I come in from the cold outdoors and begin shooting inside.  I've had no issues with the pictures, just the video portion.  Any ideas? Condensation perhaps?

    60D operating temperatures according to two WEB sources is 32F to 104F.  I suggest a camera overcoat or some way to keep the camera in that temperature bracket when shooting.  I hope the cold temps break for you soon.

  • 70d - movie recording has been stopped automatically

    I just purchased a new Canon 70D...once I start recording, it records for a few seconds...small boxes appear on the upper right side of the display screen and then it shuts down and says "Movie recording has been stopped automatically"...is this due to a setting or something? I have been using a 7D for a number of years and this is a new issue for me...

    Hi, LmharrisonTX!
    You may want to check the type of memory card you're using for this.  HD movie recording requires a fast memory card, and if yours can't keep up, it will be overwhelmed within a few seconds, causing the camera to halt recording.  We recommend using at least a "Class 10" memory card.
    Please let us know what you are using.  If the card is indeed at least Class 10 and you're still having problems, we can at least eliminate that as a possibility and we can examine other factors.
    We look forward to hearing from you!

  • ITunes has stopped automatically syncing new books placed in Library with open file. I have to drag the file to the device to get iTunes to sync the book. Why

    iTunes has stopped automatically syncing new books placed in Library with open file. I have to drag the file to the device to get iTunes to sync the book. Why?
    Ever since version. 7 iTunes has stopped syncing checked books without dragging them to my iPad. all settings are correct.  I have set up 3 new devices and had to direct the new people to drag the books to their iPad. previous to ver. 7 this happened automaticlly just by syncling the device.  This issue isn't just on my computer but at least three others. books purchased from apple sync just fine. If is drag the book from the library ad drop it on the device it syncs fine.  What a pain if you have added several files now you either have to do the drag drop process for each one as you add it or try and remember which files you added the find them and do the process. 
    Thanks

  • The record has stopped because the audio format has changed

    I am using a JVC 9500E onto an XP pro machine with CS3 nothing else large empty hard drive. Firewire.
    Bringing a recording which was taken in one go with no changes - at 48Khz. PAL nothing odd - just continually opauses every 5-360 seconds with the error
    The record has stopped because the audio format has changed.
    using TAPe and Scene detect.
    anyone got any ideas?

    I know this is way too late and not really an answer, but I've had the same kinds of problems with PP2's capture function on 3 different decks on 2 different motherboards and 4 different OSes.
    My work involves capturing and repairing problematic and old or damaged tapes of all kinds. I understand that there will be some errors (tape stretch, breakage, etc) that can't be handled by the deck/camera hardware directly, and I have no problems with having to manually cue past such issues.
    But for otherwise fine and undamaged tapes, for PP2 to suddenly cease capturing, prompting to save less than 2 seconds' worth of video when all that happened was some minor tape noise or an audio frame missing is unhelpful at best and crippling otherwise. It's got to the point that PP2 is completely useless to me, when only the most pristine tapes with the most minimal of problems can be reliably captured.
    Since I've used the same hardware (cables, decks) to capture 1200+ hours of "through" footage (i.e. not MiniDV tape playback) without major problems, on the current system alone, that would seem to indicate that the system/cable/deck hardware is fine, it's the problem frame handling that's broken. When 3 different deck/camera manufacturers all react to the same tape problems in the exact same way (at least, for the few common tapes that I've had the ability to test on all 3 decks, all else being equal), that doesn't seem to me to indicate a manufacturer or model problem at all.
    However, Adobe's support response in each case (audio drops or minor tape dropouts) is "get the camera repaired by an authorised repairer". (It would seem that I'm an example of a particularly unlucky customer, buying 3 brand-new top-of-the-line 'duds' from 3 different manufacturers in as many years! What are the odds? I should buy a Lotto ticket...) That kind of support response is a real pity, since using the basic transport functionality outside PP2 seems to work perfectly for all but the most severe tape problems, but only using anything except PP2.
    To try to tell me that this is a deck hardware failure each time I've raised the same type of problem is disingenuous at best. But that's another story.
    The workaround (and yes, there is one!) is to use anything else except Premiere Pro 2.0 for any MiniDV capture operation. It's much easier to use VLC or Nero to perform flawed tape capture, and then use the otherwise sensational editing prowess of PP2 to fix the problems later.
    Pity.

  • Recording sessions stopped automatically

    Last weekend I recorded several live performances of a party cover band (30 tracks, iLIVE T112 - MADI Card - RME MADIface, 24bit/48kHz). The system worked fine but all logic recording sessions stopped automatically at 01:01:40 min, so i lost always 2-3 songs in every set.
    What the hack? Is there a file size restriction or something like that? What went wrong...any idea anybody? Thanx in advance...
    MBP Mid 2012 Retina, 2,6 Ghz 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD,  LogicProX 10.0.6 , OS 10.8.5

    Yes, there are file size restrictions. But your file sizes would be just above 500 MB for a mono file (3700 x 3 (24 bits=3 bytes) x 48k), and 1 GB for a stereo file, both are well under the maximum for AIFF, WAV and CAF formats. Could it be that your disk got full?
    AIFF: The AIFF file format cannot handle audio file recordings larger than 2 GB:
    For 16-bit, 44.1 kHz stereo files, this equals a recording time of about 3 hours and 15 minutes.
    For 24-bit, 96 kHz, 5.1 surround files, this equals a recording time of about 20 minutes.
    WAVE (BWF): The WAVE file format cannot handle audio file recordings larger than 4 GB:
    For 16-bit, 44.1 kHz stereo files, this equals a recording time of about 6 hours and 30 minutes.
    For 24-bit, 96 kHz, 5.1 surround files, this equals a recording time of about 40 minutes.
    CAF: If the size of your recording exceeds the above limits, choose the CAF (Apple Core Audio Format) file format, which can handle the following recording times:
    About 13 hours and 30 minutes at 44.1 kHz
    About 6 hours at 96 kHz
    About 3 hours at 192 kHz
    The bit depth and channel format—mono, stereo, or surround—do not affect the maximum recording size of CAF files.

    Hi There
    I have a Sony DVd recorder and Sony TV, both bought from Sony shop 5 years ago, so out of warranty.
    last night, recorder stopped showing Title List/Guide, and eventually, no power light.
    Have checked fuse, and ******ed new one, no luck.
    Went to local tv shop, and he said 4 customers have called today with similat problem, any advice please.

    I'm sorry to know your Sony DVD recorder is no longer working.
    May I have the complete model number of your unit? You can get either from the front page of the manual or from the back of the player. (e.g., RDRGX255)
