Memory Card

How many hours of video can I record on a 32GB SDHC Card If I were to record full 1080p? I have been told that its around 90 Mins. For a 16 Hour shoot that is going to cost me around 350 - 400 OMG is that right?

Re: Memory Card

Yes, a 32GB will hold about 80-90 minutes of footage. Just take a laptop with you and you can off load the cards after their full. In reality you will need at least 2 cards. So you can be filming while you off load the other. That's ideal but it all depends on your situation. You might need at least 4-5 cards to get through each day and off load at night. Or you can buy a standalone harddrive that reads memory cards, but I think laptops do the job just fine!

Re: Memory Card

For all the Canon DSLRs 3 minutes of video equals approximately a 1GB file.

The advantage of a Nexto DI or HyperDrive Colorspace standalone unit is that unlike a laptop they fit in your pocket.

I wouldn't worry too much about unloading cards on the day. Just keep them safe until you get home. Don't re-use them until you have at least two copies on separate disk drives.

You really shouldn't be shooting continuously with a DSLR like you do with a camcorder. The 12 minute file limit will prevent that for a start but the whole style of shooting is different with many short clips being the norm. For a 12 hour long wedding day shoot I will rarely end up with more than 3 hours of footage with my Canon DSLRs.

Re: Memory Card

I have 16 of Sandisk 16GB SD cards. Each one holds about 45 minutes.

With tapes, I usually let it record.. now with memory card, I only record when it is needed. Last weekend 8 hour wedding, I recorded 11 SD cards.

Re: Memory Card

Using a downloader is much more convenient and sometimes the only option especially if your operating in conditions and areas where plug-in power or space is limited. My HyperDrive Colorspace can download at about 30MB/s and will download about 250gigs on one charge. You can't always stop to setup a laptop, and you sure don't want to downloading to a laptop while on the run.

Re: Memory Card

If it's too good to be true, it probably is =)

I won't be using ADATA or Transcend for my vacation photos and videos. For professional work, and wedding work, I can't take the chance of coming home with some corrupted footage files :)

Re: Memory Card

I have seen bad reviews for all memory cards even the Sandisk, I did not think that it would be that big of an issue but finding a low cost Class10 card seems to be harder than I thought. They should sell a pack of 5 and reduce the cost.

Re: Memory Card

I have been very happy with Transcend Compact Flash cards for my 5DII (both 133X &400X) & have been equally happy with Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC for my 600D at just 33.82 from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003VNKNF0/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&s=computers&psc=1

They are a less than half the price of similar cards from SanDisk & are a bargain at that price. They are decent quality from a good manufacturer & you will not find better at the price. You would be mad to buy cheaper cards from unknown brands when filming weddings professionally.

Re: Memory Card

I always reformat the card each time I insert it, not just when I change cameras, and I think that's kept me from having any problems... that, and using only Hoodman cards.

Re: Memory Card

I've had problems with a 32GB Transcend card. It's being replaced by Transcend right now. There is lots of negative feedback for them on Amazon.
