has anyone ever had this happen? i'm shooting with EPIC build 3.0.
the shot calls for a transition tilting down from the sky onto the actors.
my camera starts pointed level to shoot the slate, then i tilt up to a bright overcast sky and then tilt down to transition into the scene.
the camera's red roll button and time-code have turned red and keep showing we are rolling, but the SSD percentage counter doesn't count down.
and when we check playback, the camera has actually stopped recording as soon as the entire frame is covered with overexposed, white sky.
i tried this a few times with both of our EPIC bodies and identified that the cameras will not roll when the frame is 100% filled with bright, uniformly overexposed white information. i tried a similar bench test with the lens off and the resulting blown out white image and when i roll, the camera hiccups a few frames and then cuts out even though it appears to keep rolling according to the active red roll button and red time-code numbers.
is this just a firmware or software glitch -- or is it a safety feature to somehow protect the sensor from burning out?
anyone ever experienced something like this before?
for the time being, no more shooting the bright sky :)
