Hi Fuji lovers, I apologise if this has been asnwered already, but I have problem using both either built-in or 3rd party intervalometers. I was out last night trying to capture som startrails for the first time and I noticed that the delay between each shot I took was approximately 1:1 to the exposure time value I set on my Fuji X-T10. For example I would set 3rd party off brand chinese intervalometer "Shoot" with the following: DELAY: 2s (delay between pressing the shutter button and camera actually opening the shutter) LONG: 35s (how long the shutter should stay open) INTVL: 2s (as I understand this should be actual time setting between each shot taken) N: -- (number of pictures to take, infinity in this case) Camera in MANUAL mode, BULB, tungsten WB, ISO1600, RAW+JPEG, Single Shot mode, latest firmware. SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I card. When the first picture was taken the camera would open the shutter, time would pass, then close the shutter and start "processing" the image and little square like loading circle appeared in the middle of the screen. This "processing" would take somewhere around 32seconds and only after that the camera would take yet another shot. I tried it with different LONG settings (5s, 10s, 45s) and the delay was always almost identical to the exposure time value. Another thing I noticed when I was out playing with the setting (and getting frustrated at this point) was that when I set exposure time to lets say 45s, camera would take the shot, started the whole "processing" thing, then open the shutter for 3.7s, close the shutter again, and only after that 3.7s shot open it again for another 45s shot. So when looking at the pictures in sequence as they were captured I would have stars, dark frame, stars, dark frame,... Is there some setting in X-T10 that I missed? Is this normal when taking long exposure pictures? Thanks for any advice.
There have been times when I use the built in intervalometer, and I am able to do more than 999 shots, it actually does 1998 shots. Twice as many. I have no idea how to make it work all the time, or if its some kind of software error that makes it work. Any ideas?
Hello there! I am new to this forum and a proud owner of an X-T2. Last night I wished to try interval timer shooting to stack some star tracks, so I programmed my gear for 545 1-second exposures each separated by 10 seconds, at ISO 1000. OIS was off, AF was set to manual with focus set at infinity and aperture also set to manual, at the widest setting for the lens. The body firmware version is 4.30 and the battery was fully charged. When the shooting was over, I was disappointed to see that only 292 exposures had been taken instead of the 545 I had keyed in. Anybody have an idea why this happened?
