Movie recording has been stopped automatically – ouch!

If you own a Canon t2i?(550d) or t3i (600d) & you get the following error while shooting video?Movie recording has been stopped automatically then your SD card is not keeping up with the buffer received from your Canon camera. ( buffer overflow / buffer overrun )

I have recently bought a class 10 PNY & I got the same error, users with the following SD cards might run into it:

  • Transcend
  • PNY
  • SanDisk
A quick win/fix would be disabling?audio recording, this allow you to record audio-less but without stopping the video recording.


A better fix would be getting a class 10 SD card with a speed higher than or equal to 30MB/s.
Sorry if its too late & you got a slow SD card 😉
