    don't even think about it la.. if you really wanna video full concerts go get a small handicam...

    use the camera to the max of its wonderful capabilities...
    it will give you inspiring photos, and awesome video clips..

    just unlikely that it will give you 2 hour concerts...
    I already have a FS200.. but seeing how i record WHOLE concerts.. the quality must be good.. so i thought i switched to DSLR.

    But does HD Camcorders need the high class SD Cards too?

    i don't think its the 550d specific... all DSLRs will not let you shoot 1 hour concert clips... let alone 2 hours~! OH MY!!

    hmmmm if you really need to shoot something so long it can only be the video cams..

    with regards to the HD cams card requirements i'm not too sure... maybe someone else will know..

    Yes, go Memory World to get their Transcend Class 10 SDHC.

    Just got mine last week @ $55/- for the 16GB Class10.

    So far so good. Recorded almost 20 minutes for Full-HD 1080p continuously without problem .

    If using the 8GB Class 4 Scandisk card, the recording will stop automatically after a very short time (about < 2 minutes).

    Hi I also just got my 1st EOS camera 550D XD
    Had the same problem like you 2weeks back. It's due to the SD card Classes. Class 4 speed is too slow for recording. It will stop recording like say 5secs?
    You need to get Class 6 and above if you want to record. I brought a 8GB Class 10 and it work out fine

    Based on the Manual Pg132,




    If 330MB/min is needed, a 2 hrs (120mins) movie will need about 40GB of space.

    However, please note that your 550D will stop every 4GB file size. Furthermore, 1 battery is not enough for you 2 hrs shooting.

    Hmm.. the training's very basic.. but it'll help a lot if u r just too lazy to read thru the manual.. its on the technical aspect of the camera and not about photography.. so don't expect tips on photography!

    It'll be done as a group with the demostrator using the model most common in the group..
