NX5u dropping 4 frames of audio after 30 minutes
on Feb 25, 2011 at 11:22:08 pm

I use the NX5u's for events that are sometimes over 1 hour in length. After 30 minutes the cameras automatically create a new file. This is a headache for syncing multiple cameras but I'm dealing with it.

However, when I butt those two clips together it's supposed to be seamless, but it's not! The video is seamless, but the end of each 30 minute clip has 4 frames of no audio. The audio file is there, but no waveform or audible sound.

It is like this on both of my NX5Us so I don't think it's a random problem with one camera. If this is how these cameras record I cannot use them professionally. I have projects now where every 30 minutes there's an audio glitch.

Somebody please tell me I'm doing something wrong.

Any advice or thoughts? I'm using them in conjunction with FCP 7

Thank you,
