Hello All,

This week I've been using my Nizo Professional to shoot some timelapse footage. Thing is, if the frame rate is any more rapid than about 1fps, it starts getting very irregular. Each 'click' sounds different, it sometimes stutters and stops, the intervals become closer together or further apart; in short the camera is not having a nice time at all.
Furthermore on processing the films I can see that the sequences are suffering badly, with about one in every four or five frames completely black. All the other frames are exposed perfectly.

I spoke to a Nizo expert friend and she said that she had heard of this happening before, but that it was a problem with the internal electronics or intervalometer, and therefore very difficult to fix. I was kind of hoping it was a mechanical fault that I might be able to fix myself with a basic service. I should point out that all other frame rates (18/25/54) run as sweetly as they ever have.

As always, any help or ideas appreciated.

Best,

Matt
