    Maybe it’s just a particular 128GB card? I use a Lexar 128GB UHS-II card in slot 1 with no problems (i use it when shooting high bandwidth video).
  • Apologies for the late reply. very good info from you both, many thanks (Iliah, you’re a legend here, it’s an honour to have you contribute to my esoteric thread :-) I’m afraid I haven’t given all ...

    Happlily, I can definitively say that 512GB cards do work in Slot 1:  I’ve put almost 100,000 photos on 512GB cards (Sandisk, Lexar & Kingston UHS-I cards) in slot 1 in my A7III. Slot 2 too :-)

    Ha ha, 1TB cards would be nice! I've been sourcing used (barely used) 512GB cards for about 1/2 of new, the 1TB cards are uncomfortably out of my price range (all the equipment I've invested in ...
  • If you set that setting, yes. So you're thinking that maybe the camera will then stop writing to slot 2 and suddenly go back to slot 1 when I put a card in? Hmm, that's a very good point.  I can ...

    Wow, it powered your laptop for 36 hours? That's quite impressive (I forgot that the latest Mac laptops are powered by USB-C, that's really useful). That opens up more possibilities, thanks. Intere ...

    Hey fellow timelapse photog! :-) The first project was to create a static timelapse of London over three-ish days to be used on a huge 4K display in a company’s waiting room. When they contacted me ...

    Hey, that's a great article, thanks for the pointer! You've got me re-thinking the tethering option. Powering a laptop with a car battery isn't something I'd considered, another thanks! As for the ...
  • Replied in for tedpl
    My original post was a query, to see if anyone knew the answer before I tested the hardware. Surely this isn't an unreasonable request? Happily, no challenge at all. The camera can be set up to ...
  • Replied in for Ed
    I won't, I have several cards, enough to shoot the whole sequence. But it was a good question, I appreciate the contribution :-)
  • Replied in For splashy
    Oh, I’ll definitely be trying it before the actual shoot, this post is just the first step in the testing (just wanted to find out if anyone knew the answer before I started testing the hardware). ...
  • Replied in for SQLGuy
    Impractical, I'm afraid. The shooting location is away from power (no way to power a laptop for 24 hours), and space is limited (no room for a generator). It's a good suggestion though! (now I'm ...

    Thanks for the reply, I very much appreciate it. I do plan to experiment, but I thought I'd ask for info first, before I risked corrupting a card (I'll buy some small, cheap, ones to experiment with).

    Hi, I'm a professional timelapse photographer, and I have taken many tens of thousands of photos with the sun in shot. Some examples: https:/ ...
  • Hi All, tl;dr I need to shoot 45,000 photos in a row for a 30 minute timelapse movie. I need to swap out cards to hold all those photos, but there isn't time to turn off the camera to do the swap ...
  • Replied in for Michael
    Wow, the E1 is a really interesting prospect, thanks very much for the pointer! Just gotta figure out if I can drive it the way I need to (gotta at least have an external battery, and unlimited ...
  • Replied in for uRebel Rob
    Good info, many thanks. You obviously know your stuff, that's insightful advice. I typically use large external batteries, even for my cameras with large batteries (the Sony A7 series batteries are ...
  • Replied in for SteveY80
    Thanks for that info. I'll be crossing a GM1 off the list :-)
  • I have a colleague who is shooting with an Olympus. Not sure which one it is, I'll ask him about the E-M10, thanks!

    Good info again, thanks.
