    Hey Jesper, my cousin was recently interested in purchasing an T1i for this reason until I brought the following to his attention. I found this @ www.dpreview.com, which is my first source for reviews..

    "Like the EOS 5D Mark II model, the EOS Rebel T1i camera will record video up to 4GB per clip equalling approximately 12 minutes of Full HD video, 18 minutes of 720p HD video, or 24 minutes of SD video depending on the level of detail in the scene."

    It can also be found in the chart here

    Sorry if this was a defining feature for the camera you purchased :-\

    Hey..

    Thanks for your reply :)

    but:drool: i know that, its okay with me. But mine stops after 10 seconds, even in the smallest resolution. It must be a setting, but i can find it...

    ah ok, sorry I didn't know you had it at the lowest setting I was just assuming you weren't aware as most people excited about the 1080p video are not

    good luck with the setting(s)! let us know how it goes

    That would be my guess as well - head over to amazon and get a nice fast sandisk card :) (don't bother with highstreet shops - memory cards get a massive price markup in them - often several times that of legitimate online prices)

    Most people that purchase the camera for the HD video and don't realize that are idiots for not researching a purchase that expensive...

    You could also try formatting the card in the camera. That should clear it up and allow you to continue recording continuosly.

    His card isn't fast enough to handle the data stream. All the formatting in the world won't fix that problem. He needs to buy a faster memory card.

    I have a T3i with the same problem, but I have a Class 10 memory card. When I record a video, I see a bar along the side that counts down 8 seconds and when it reaches the top, it says "Video recording has been stopped automatically." I don't have video snapshots turned on and there's plenty of room left on the 8 Gb Kingston Class 10 memory card.

    Ideas?

    Mike
