4K 50p problems

I'm trying to record 4k 50p RAW from the sony fs700, using two Samsung 850 pro SSDs, (512 and 128gb). I record normally (I've used this system plenty of times shooting 4K 25p and 2k RAW). In 50p, I hit record to record a clip and get a clip on each SSD with alternate frames in. i.e.. inside clip 1 on SSD one I get frames 00, 02, 04, 06 etc and on SSD two clip one I get frames 01, 03, 05, 06 etc. This is not how it's meant to be right? Does anyone have an idea of what is going wrong? Thanks!

Re: 4K 50p problems

This is normal. The Odyssey is writing to both SSDs at the same time to keep up with the data rates. You'll need to use Convergent's transfer tool to create a single proper MOV file.
I wait for the day cost-efficient global shutter 60fps capable CMOS sensors emerge for use on major manufacturers' cameras. (Sony, Canon, etc.) Rolling Shutters are a plague.
