Canon EOS R - rodrigo - 2019-01-10

Happy New Year Gunther for you and your Family.
Please forgive me if these subject has been raised, after taking a short test time lapse, controlling the shots using Miops Smart, I found that importing into LRT was not a problem, only when I tried to import them to Lightroom I got the message saying "folder empty". In the back of my mind I remember something about converting images to DNG, this I did and manage to import them.
Is it that the case from now on?
Also though I specified in the Miops 375 photos at 2" intervals, it only took 186 which is about half the specified number, and there are no jumps. According LRTL the interval is 4".
Any thoughts.

Kind regards.

Hi Rodrigo, LRTimelapse supports the EOS-R. For Lightroom to support it, you need the latest Lightroom CC Classic update.
If you don't have that, you can work around using the latest Adobe DNG Converter to convert to DNG.
If your Camera skips every second shot, your intervalometer is too slow or blocks the camera or the camera is too slow. What matters is the Dark Time inbetween shots: it's Interval minus Exposure time. If it's too short, the interval or camera might miss shots.
I don't know the intervalometer that you use, therefore it's hard to advise, sorry...
See this faq also:

The ISO on the camera was1600, the speed was 1/5 at f8; the intervalometer was set at 2".

So then obviously the intervalometer is not suited for short intervals. I can see, that this intervalometer triggers the camera via USB, from my experience this is not a good idea and might slow down things. But I'm only guessing, since I've never tried a Canon R for timelapse or that intervalometer. Just try another intervalometer, which has an analog cable release (not USB, no Smartphone, just a classic intervalometer). In the article that I've linked to you'll find enough information.
