  • The file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous shooting are based on Canons testing standards (3:2 aspect ratio, ISO 100 and Standard Picture Style) using an 8 GB card. These figures will vary by the subject, card brand, aspect ratio, ISO speed, Picture Style, Custom Functions, and other settings.
  • Figures in parentheses apply to an UHS-I compatible 8 GB card based on Canons testing standards.

Light ( )The movie is recorded at a low bit rate for playback on various devices, resulting in a smaller file size than with [Standard]. Therefore, you can shoot longer than with [Standard].

Movie Files Exceeding 4 GB
Even if you shoot a movie exceeding 4 GB, you can keep shooting without interruption.
During movie shooting, approx. 30 sec. before the movie reaches the 4 GB file size, the elapsed shooting time displayed in the movie shooting screen will start blinking. If you keep shooting until the movie file size exceeds 4 GB, a new movie file will be created automatically and the elapsed shooting time or time code will stop blinking.
When you play back the movie, you will have to play each movie file individually. Movie files cannot be played back automatically in consecutive order. After the movie playback ends, select the next movie to be played back.

  • If you want to shoot still photos while shooting a movie, you will need an even faster card.
  • To check the cards reading/writing speed, refer to the card manufacturers Web site.
  • An increase of the cameras temperature may cause movie shooting to stop before the maximum recording time shown in the table above
  • If you change the [ : Video system] setting, set the movie recording size again.
