Re: Canon 500D doesn't record continuously!! (Class 6 SD card write speed too slow??!

I have a Canon 500D - and to be able to record HD video I have had to use a Sandisk Extreme III 8Mb Card - which is stamped as being 6 rated - but says it is 30Mb/S - which I assume is 30Mb/Second. I used an Ultra II which is noted as 15Mb/S and this could not cope. The Ultra is fine for normal photos - but not for video. Hope this helps.
