All,

Is it possible to change the photo burst interval?

We use the drone for research purposes to calculate body length of dolphins at sea.

The burst mode allows to capture multiple pictures within <1 second.
however, for our purposes we would like to get multiple photos, lets say 3 photos divided over a second, or 5 photos over a 2 second time period, hereby slowing the burst mode by 2-3 fold.


Does anybody know if this is possible?

Like my other remarks on mismatch of gps timing of photos and video

when you take 5 burst photos, which are all shot within 1 second, the original time in the exif data adds 1 second to each subsequent burst photo, which doesnt make sense. They should all have the same time to the second.

Thanks

Machiel

Maybe reload the app?

You could try using other adjustment, then go back to that parameter and try it again, to see if it corrects.

The speed of the burst mode is dependant on the SD card. If it was speeded up it would not work on many SD cards, so DJI keep it to a lower rate to ensure compatibility.

Geebax,
if i understand your reply correctly, a slower sd card will make the the inter-photo time of a burst of photos longer?

I was hoping to be able to adjust (slow down) the speed of the burst to enable to get a full surfacing of a dolphin on say 3 to 5 photos.
I can use a 10 photo-mode burst for this, however the writing of 10 photos to the card takes too long, and while this happens, it blocks the controls to take another photo / burst. hence not very useful for our work.

Why don't you record little videos at 4k 24FPS, split the file into JPGs using a converter and select exactly the images you need ?

P4p+ Brzail, Thansk for your suggestion and yes we do that too, but two downsides are

a- a lot more post processing if used a lot, (geolocations / gps timing) etc
b- pictures are more sharp and get more detail, 4k video tends to be softer than the photos, especially around edges of animals

I think it will only slow down the process to a point, but may in the end stop the shooting progress. I think the only way to get around this is to use an aircraft that already has a higher spec camera system, such as the Inspire.

Completely agree. As a train photographer with a drone (and there are many of us) being able to set the burst mode frames-per-second would be extremely useful to increase the pause between shots. With a little shutter lag sometimes, I have taken a lot of pictures with poles and trees in the way of my trains - a longer pause between burst mode pics would be realllly helpful.
