Need some advice on laggy video with EOS 90D. The camera is mainly used for photography and occasional time lapse videos.
The device is used on trips, very low on shutter count. Around 10.000. Still works fine when taking photos but there is an unbearable lag/stutter in videos. I rarely shoot FullHD or 4K so i don't know exactly when the problem occurred. Camera is now 3 years old.
I tried with a brand new SDXC Card, still the same result.
Audio is perfect but video is playing like 5 frames per second. It happens on live preview and also on the output movie.
It has 1.1.1 firmware and has the kit EFS 18-135 lens on.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What specific SD card are you using? Does it have a V-rating on it (e.g. V30, V60, V90)? Perhaps the current card is too slow and is dropping frames.
The V-rating is the most useful rating to go by as it's a sustained write speed. The most prominent value printed on cards are only theoretical max read speeds. Consult your manual for the various bitrates required for your footage. Note though that the V-rating is in megabytes per second and bitrates will be in megabits for second. Thus, for a V30 card, that can handle a max of 240 Mbps recording codecs. Though you typically want a bit of breathing room as well, so when possible, go for the next higher write speed card if you're too close to the maximum.
Tried all suggested solutions.
Reset camera, didnt work
Formatted card, didnt work
Changed card, and formatted again, didnt work
Removed battery, changed to old card, reset camera again, and it did work.
Wonderful world of software and it's miraculous way of acting.
Don't know the exact solution but since resetting for the 2nd time was the last step, I'm considering it as a solution. Reset camera>do random component changes>remove some pieces>reset again. 🙂
Thanks for your replies.
