When I film myself (naked and masturbating B) ) the 7D can turn itself off for any number of reasons e.g. some of the crappy memory cards I have do this, or they fill up, but either way, I'm continuing to perform, assuming everything's being captured, and when I'm done I check the camera and discover to my horror that at some point it decided to stop filming.

I am a newbie to this, so is there a way that little light on the front of the camerac be used as the 'we're still filming' light, or can you turn on some audible bleeping noise that tells you in the settings?

Short of that, I'm open to DIY suggestions like putting something reflective behind it, I don't know, maybe I'm the first person to have this problem, but, as always,

Thank you in advance for your suggestions,
Rob.

You could simply get into the menu and turn that option off.
