Recording Issue On Canon 550D/T2i
« on: February 15, 2014, 05:48:43 PM »
Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if this has been raised elsewhere.  I'm new to the forum and wasn't 100% on where this should be posted.

Anyway, the issue.....

I'm am recording video on my 550D/T2i the Magic Lantern.  The installation of Magic Lantern was no problem and this is the only issue I noticed.

I am getting the dreaded 'recording has stopped automatically message' after 3 seconds of recording at full resolution at 24fps.

I'm aware that cheap SD cards can be be a big issue with this, but I am using Sandisk 32g Class 10 cards so can't see the  brand/quality/speed of the card being an issue.

I'm really happy with video quality I am getting and just need to get over this issue, but am getting inconstant information on what this could be.

I have a basic knowledge of DSLR video, but fear I may be missing something.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks


Jamie

did you mess with any of the settings already? changed the bitrate maybe?

Hi, thanks for you're reply.

I have increased the bitrate, but didn't think this would effect it on a high class card.

I'll knock it down to see if that helps. Can you advise on an optimum bitrate and will having it lower effect the footage dramatically?

With what I have read there is little to be gained upping the bitrate.

That's interesting to hear.

I'll drop the bitrate back to default to see what that does. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for your help.

With a class 10 card, 1.7 x bitrate already causes buffer overflow on my EOS-M. I'd guess it does so sooner on the older 550D...

Anything higher than 1.4 CBR (with sound) will cause buffer overflow in your 550D
