F5/55 Interval Recording
 
Hello.

I'm trying to find out if either camera does interval recordering. I know they have an S/Q mode which will do 1 frame per second, but i'm looking to really speed things up with 1 frame every 10-20 seconds.

Thank you.

Craig

Just a follow up question. If these cameras don't do interval recording, could this me done with an external recorder like the Odyssey 7?

No interval recording on either camera, but I can't answer your question about using an external recorder.

Thanks Doug.

Have you tried using S/Q as a time lapse function on the F55?

S&Q is currently limited to HD (It will eventually be available in 4K) but does a great job of time-lapse. It has the advantage over the interval modes in some other cameras that for night city scenes the shutter speed can be adjusted to 1 second (360 degree) to give nice car light trails. It works very well and is a great way to shoot time-lapse. You can of course speed things up still further in post.

TBH if you really want longer intervals a DSLR is better anyway. Smaller, lower power, higher resolution. But for grabbing quick TL sequences S&Q works very well.

This clip is primarily S&Q from the FS700, again no interval mode on the FS700 but S&Q works very well.

Nope. Everything I'm doing these days is 4K.

Alister, how do you adjust the shutter speed as described? I can't seem to set mine slower than 1/30 in S&Q mode. Thanks!

The fraction of a second speed settings do not go down below the cameras base frame rate.
Turning the shutter off makes the shutter stay open for the full duration of the frame rate, so at 1fps = 1 second. You can also use shutter angle to get different speeds, for example 180 degrees at 1fps = 1/2 second etc.

Re: F5/55 Interval Recording
 
Thanks Alister, I'll try that.

Thanks Alister. It'll be interesting to see how well the F5 captures the northern lights this winter. Or did you have a chance to do it last winter?

One more question Alister, off topic. Are you using a Metabones type adapter on your F5 for DSLR lenses?
