Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
Hi! Before I spend my money for nothing. I just want to know if it's normal or not. When I'm shooting video in high quality (640X480X30fps) I can only shoot a 15-20 second video. I'm using a sandik 2gb ultra. When I use other lower settings I can make much longer video. Is it the memory that has a too slow writing speed to capture high resolution video? If I get a sandik extrem which is double the writing speed would I be able to capture video longer than 30 sec on highest resolution? Thanks Martin
The rate is about 7 minutes of video per 1Gb of storage. The camera does not write more than X66 so the card is ok, you should try to format the card via the camera, use the low level format and then try to shoot again, it should work after a low level format. Good luck!

Have you made sure to format the card first?
