4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 3 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingston Technology 16GB Full Size SDHC Class 10 Flash Card (Personal Computers)
For taking pictures it is ok , but to make films in full HD it is too slow (eos 550), the camera stops recording after a few minutes.

Just a bit of info - just been looking at memory cards and the new SDXC cards, came across this -
The SDHC cards use a specific type of filing system (Fat32) which only allows a maximum of 4GB file size per file, so the recording is probably stopping when the video is long enough to take up the whole 4GB. The newer (and more expensive!) SDXC cards have much higher capacities and are capable of larger file sizes, so might be worthwhile checking them out for longer videos.

You are right, but in my case the size of the files was about 1.5 GB (3 min 40s) full HD. When I was only recording, nothing happened, the problem occurred when I started using AF and taking pictures (during recording). In camera manual there is information that when using cards with small speed that may happen. I didn't use cards class 10 from other manufacturer, so I can't tell what would happen.
