"Timelapse Problem"


AU
          

I bought a D5300 last month and am having an issue with the automatic interval capture.

I set up the camera to take 400 images 10 seconds apart. For some reason it stops after 180 images. The battery is not at all flat, the SD card is not full (enough room for a few hundred more RAW images).

It does this whether I shoot in RAW or JPEG. The images it does capture are fine but it stops at 180 images consistently. Any ideas why this happens would be appreciated.

If I remember this correctly, check your exposure settings. If you are using long exposures, make sure your exposure time fits into the interval time, else intervals that start during the exposure will be skipped.

Thanks for the reply. I am using fast enough shutter speeds. I just tried it again and this time it took 188 images at f22, 1/320 sec, iso 100.

It is probably firmware.
Nikon need to uncripple the potential of their cameras.

Visit my Nikonians gallery.

Thanks for the further reply. It may be a firmware issue. I'll try the process with various RAW and jpg image settings and see if that makes a difference and post my results.
