Dropped Frames on Tmelapse? Really?

PostSat May 11, 2013 2:48 am

I'm just trying to wrap my head around how my camera is dropping frames on time-lapse?

I'm currently shooting a shot with a 1 sec interval, and after a minute or 2 the REC logo starts flashing.
( to my knowledge this means frames are being dropped )

how can this be? I mean at 1 sec intervals the SSD is only writing 5MBs, where as 24p is doing something around 120MBs. Which by the way works just fine.

Then again I am using the Crucial M4 512GB, which from what I have read either works fine, or just simply doesn't.

But regardless of the SSD, the amount of data being moved per second is really insignificant.

Any body else facing similar issues?

Try a different SSD.
