CF/Canon DSLR file issues
Posted 26 September 2012 - 04:41 PM
I just did an important (aren't they all) shoot for an important (") client, and had two completely different cameras screw the pooch in two completely different ways. The only noticeable common denominator being CF.
I set up a 5d (not II or III) to shoot a time lapse. I tested it the day before, ran a quick test on site, AOK. I fire it off when the event begins and later find it in Error 2 mode. Only one garbled frame. I set it up in another couple spots, ran it just as previously. No probs. Not enough motion blur but that's operator error. As this has never happened to me before, I wonder if any of you have seen it and can help me prevent it in the future.
Principal photography (video) was a 5DII. As you know, the files are numbered sequentially. 0001, 0002, etc. I go to pull this material into FCP and discover a one-file gap. As in 1234, 1236. Oh and it's my most important speaker. Lovely. Anyway, anyone seen this? Fix?
While we're at it, can someone name an excellent video noise reduction filter or whatever for those 5dII files?

Talked to CPS and they (naturally) think it's the cards. Not saying they're wrong. Prospec 32gb for vid, Promaster 16gb for stills.
Sending both cams in.
