3.0 out of 5 stars Often not able to keep up with video recording., 29 July 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDU-064G-FFP Ultra 64 GB SDXC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card - Frustration-Free Packaging (Label May Change) (Accessory)
I shoot with a Canon 600D and while using this card I found that the camera automatically stopped recording several times due to the fact that the SD card was not fast enough to keep up. The (so claimed) 30mb/s speed is fast enough most of the time when using a DSLR but it does still stop every so often, so if you are shooting with a Canon DSLR I think I'd recommend going for the 'Extreme 45mb/s' card which right now is about £14 more.

I shoot weddings and a fellow cameraman who also bought this card has the same problem (He shoots with a 600D as well) and in our line of business we can't risk missing something important because the camera automatically stops recording. I must clarify, the card does not stop all that often but it is a problem worth noting.

This wasn't just the cannons limit kicking in was it? I've got a 60d and like all cannons its great but does have a fairly short recording limit built in.

I have this problem with my Canon. It will stop recording SECONDS into the video. I don't think the limit on a Canon is seconds.... J. Merriott, you're talking about the max 12 mins recording, which isn't something to be confused with here. If the red blinking light doesn't flash, apparently, it's a problem with the buffer rate of the card. This then means that 30mb/s isn't actually fast enough, even though it should be. Whether the constant buffer rate is 30mb/s I don't know, if it drops below 20 then there will be a problem with the card in recording a video.

I'm going to buy a extreme card (wish they were a little cheaper...) which has 45mb/s, hopefully this will clear the problem.

Hope this clears some stuff up.
