What 'rate' or quality are you shooting at?

Seems to be file size going by this thread

http://video.stackexchange.com/question ... lph-300-hs

Presumably the camera imposes it and not the card. The suggestion is shooting in SD over HD, though presumably there's a middle ground in your settings, if it's actually noticeable either way.

Could be a couple of things. One is file size limit is reached either by design or technical limitation. The other is an imposed limit to stop the sensor from overheating. Either way I don't think it's anything that can be 'fixed.'

FAT file size can be gotten around with file spanning and overheating by camera design but I have also heard of an imposed limit (although greater than 15 mins) to get around some EU ruling that classifies digital cameras as video recording devices. Something like that.

You could check the firmware is up to date on the Canon Support website? What class is the memory card?

IIRC 30 mins classifies it as a video camera and hence attracts more tax.
