Interval record 2-frame count minimum

I can't setup a frame count of less than 2 when setting up my C300 to interval record. That's filming 1080 25P at 50Mbps. Any idea why? It makes the resulting timelapse clips pretty jittery on fast moving objects. Most Sony cameras I have used can go down to 1-frame count when doing timelapse.

Re: Interval record 2-frame count minimum

As far as I am aware there is nothing you can do about it. It's one of the most annoying features on both my XF300 and XF100 which are PAL only. I think if you shoot in NTSC mode it will do 1fps.

Go to 24p or 30p and that should let you record at 1 second interval.

Re: Interval record 2-frame count minimum

Bob,

I believe Thierry is looking for the ability to record a SINGLE frame during each iteration of the interval recording.

The XDCAM HD cameras could do a little as 1 frame every few seconds. Was handy for doing stop motion video.

Re: Interval record 2-frame count minimum

oops,
1 frame not 1 second.

1 Frame interval is there. You have to set a certain frame rate to have access to 1 frame intervals.
Page 93 of the manual. Only 24P but not 25p unfortunately.

.. and yes Greg, I still use my XDCAM HD camera to shoot timelapse as well. All the Sony XDCAM cameras do timelapse really well.

Re: Interval record 2-frame count minimum

To achieve the 1 frame accumulation in Pal on the Canon C300 is not possible. I cant believe that Canon have not addressed this. This is one feature above all else that I would like added. I'm actually selling the camera because of this lack of this feature.

Re: Interval record 2-frame count minimum

I seem to remember someone saying there was a workaround of sorts by playing with the speed of the clip in the timeline. Anyone else heard this?

Hi Andy, that may have been me that suggested a work around. Basically shoot your time lapse and then speed this up 100 to 200% if I recall. I don't use the C300 for time-lapse because the results are not smooth enough.
