Dropped frames after just a few minutes of filming?

PostTue Apr 24, 2018 11:17 pm

Hi,

I'm using the right kind of SSD (Sandisk Extreme, 480 GB) on a BMCC and I always get the flashing red exclamation in the upper left corner after maybe five to ten minute of filming. Sometimes the camera will then freeze up or won't save the footage. I've tried a few different types of SSD cards as well and got the same problem with each. Any solution?

Thanks.

Use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to accurately measure whether your SSD will be able to handle the capture. Are you using "Sandisk Extreme 480 GB (SDSSDX-480G-G25)" - these SSDs work ONLY for compressed video capture - you have not mentioned what format you are using ...

I'm using the regular Sandisk Extreme 480 GB (SDSSDX-480G) no 'G25' on the end. I have tried every possible filming format in the settings and I still get this flashing red exclamation point.
