jerky videos - micro card issue?

    Hi all,

    I have just bought the Inspire 1 and have to say I was blown away by the high quality of the entire package. Everything from very fast shipping to high quality packaging to awesome high end build quality was great. Today I flew the Inspire for the first time outside, and it was rock stable, very easy to fly even for a beginner like me, and pretty good even in fairly strong winds. Great fun.

    5) My big issue (and key question): the first videos I took were a) very overexposed (I guess I will need to play with the camera settings) but more critically b) the recording was, while high resolution, very bumpy with many stops / starts, jerking, unclear pics and gaps between short sequences. Either there is a serious issue with my camera or maybe the micro SD card cant save the 4k data quick enough or something like this - has anybody come across this? I bought a new ScanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB microSDXC UHS-1 Card which supposedly can handle everything out there.

    Many thanks for your tips!

    Cheers,
    Dom

    Most likely its that your playback computer can't handle 4K playback smoothly.

    I approve his message BUT....

    I also use Sandisk Extreme Plus 64GB. CR Runs well but occasionally I get a "Slow SD Card" warning.

    I instinct says that since MicroSD cards are in fact micro may be its bottleneck. I run both CF and SD cards on my 5D III and 1D and do notice size does matter into writing large data file quickly.

    Could it be that your shutter speed is too high?

    I had a similar problem. I fixed it by installing an updated codec package on my comp. Generally k-lite codec package works well and I haven't had the problem since I updated the codecs.
