5dMII ML set up.
« on: February 20, 2019, 07:15:37 PM »

I get a problem saying "frame skipped. stopped" then recording stops? i only get about 6 seconds worth of recording? which is rather useless. How have you avoided this? I've got the 5dmarkii and a lexar CF 1066x 160/mbs card...please can someone help? I can't find a clear answer so far on the forum?

Many thanks,


Walter Schulz

Without details about resolution and frame rate and other settings used there is only guessing.
And guessing tells you have a combination of settings leading to a required bandwidth above the limit cam can do. This is only guessing, of course and there may be other reasons.

Run a benchmark test in cam.
Modules tab -> ON -> Restart in photo mode -> Debug tab -> Benchmarks -> Card Benchmarks -> Card  R/W benchmark (1 min).
