Low Frame Rates on Ursa Mini Pro

PostFri Feb 16, 2018 3:02 pm

Hi All,

I'd love to be able to shoot with really low frame rates from 1fps to 11fps on my new Ursa Mini Pro. The limit at the moment is 12FPS. How easy would this be to add to the next update?

Thanks

Have you looked at the Timelapse options available?

I played around with the timelapse setting but what I'm after is the blurry/slow shutter effect when you shoot at 4fps with a 180 shutter.

Why not set the time-lapse to one frame every 6 frames and the shutter to 360 degrees?

As Uli Plank said. If you set the camera to 12 fps with 360 degree shutter and enable timelapse to record one frame every two frames you are effectively recording 6fps with 180 degree shutter. I have done it several times and it works great!

It all depends if you want continuous streaks or intermittent ones.
