Filming with 5D mark II stops after a while
Apr 29, 2011

Hi there,

I am using the 5D mark II a lot for filming, I usually do short shots that have a limited time.

Last time I filmed a concert with my 5D Mark II I noticed that the recording stopped after what seemed random periods of time. I started recording a set of songs and noiticed after the second or third song that recording had stopped.

Afterwards I tried to find any logic in the movie files, that for example recording would stop after the 1 Gb filesize was reached or maybe after a certain time , for example 5 minutes , but that was not the case!

Can anybody tell me what causes the recording to stop with the 5D mark II?

Is this normal? Or should I be able to record until the card is full?

I am using 16 Gb Sandisk cards (Extreme III , IV and also a few Sandisk Ultra cards that have 30 Mb/s, which should be more than enough to keep up with the writing....)
