Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When shooting a movie, the camera automatically stops recording after 5 seconds. about 2 seconds before it stops recording, something like a meter bar appears on the right of screen, and it jumps up from 1 block to 4 blocks and stops recording. I can't record a movie for longer than 5 seconds!


Answers :

Most cameras require a card that writes data fast in order to keep up with shooting movies. If your card is slow, you might consider buying a faster (albeit more expensive) one.
