600D questions

I "inherited" a Canon 600D a few days ago. Now I have a few questions as it didn't come with a manual. I know that I can download it but couldn't find answers to the following questions:

1. The video recording sometimes stops and a message comes up on the LCD saying:
"Video recording is interrupted"
When I try again there seems to be no problem.

2. Sometimes a message flashes in the down left corner: "Exp. SIM"

3. What is the best way to import the footage to my iMac? I have tried iMovie but it didn't recognize the
camera. Tried iPhoto and it worked... but is there a better way.

I have a 16Gb SD-card from YES marked HD-video 10.

Thank you

Re: 600D questions

I had similar problems with Class 10 SD cards causing my recordings to suddenly stop. Called Canon and they recommended the use of Class 6 for video recording. The instruction manual even state this. I use my Class 10 cards primarily for photo shoots and rely on my Class 6 cards for video.

As for importing movies, just copy the footage directly off the memory card to a folder of your choice on your HDD. iMovie '11 will import H.264 files and allow editing without the need to transcode.

Thanks John,
The problem only occurs now and then but I'll get new cards anyhow.

Re: 600D questions

I am using 16GB Sandisc class 6. I remember seeing Amazon or Adoroma now running promotion of $26 each. It was $75 each 2 years ago.. and I bought 16 of them :(
