Time lapse app interval time problem on a6000
1

I have two sony cameras

one is Sony RX 100 Mark 5 and another is Sony a6000 mirrorless SLR. I have purchased Time-lapse Apps from ‘Sony playmemories’ for both. Though these apps are working on both the cameras but the issue is: In app, I set 1 second interval time in custom settings of time-lapse apps but the apps shoot at 1.5-2 second interval in both cameras but where app/camera shows 1sec interval. I have tried all the options in Custom settings including interval time priority and all other settings but all in vain.

I use this app for clouds where 1 sec or 1.5 sec. make difference for me.

My settings; I shoot in gpeg, manual exposure, manual focus.Camera makes AVI movie files. I bought these apps 2-3 years back but this problem is since that time .

Following are the two tests of Sony RX 100 Mark 5 timelapse app;

1. Timelapse Applications’ built in Standard setting used ;, which shows 1 second interval, 240 frames and 3:59 minutes to complete the shoot. I tried it but camera completed this standard setting of 3:59/240 frames in 6:25 which shows clearly difference of 2:25 minutes, means slower 1.6 times.

2. Timelapse Applications’ Customsettings; I set 1 second interval and shot 240 frames which should be completed in 240seconds /3:59minutes, but the camera/app took 6:32, means slower 1.6 times than standard setting.

This app works fine on Cloud Sky setting of 5 sec and Night Scene settings of 3 sec interval.

For Sony A6000

1. Timelapse Applications’, built in ‘Standard’ setting; which shows 1 second interval, 240 frames and 3:59 minutes. I tried it but camera completed this shoot in 3:59/240 frames in 6:48 which shows clearly difference of 2:50 sec, means slower 1.7 times than standard’s actual setting shown on screen.

2. Timelapse Applications’ built in ‘Custom’settings: I set it to 1 second interval and shot 240 frames which should be completed in 240seconds /3:59minutes but the /app took 9:22 means slower 2x times than actual setting shown on screen.

. This app works fine on Cloud Sky setting of 5 sec and Night Scene settings of 3 sec interval.

Please advise me what will be the options to fix these issues or should I send these cameras to Sony for repair.

Please suggest some possible solutions so that these Apps work properly as per my given commands on these cameras.
