1DMII duplicate file names, possible bug?
I have been doing some astrophotography using my 1DMarkII and using the timer remote to capture a series of bulb exposures and I have had instances of duplicate file names for different images at different times. It has happened with 1.0.2 of the firmware and now 1.0.3 of the firmware. I am not sure of the exact happenings but I have a pretty good idea. It occurs when the battery is running low and then changing the battery and the flash card I get a series of duplicate file names but they have different exif with the correct time etc. On both instances last Sat. night, I was taking a series of 10 60 second shots, at the end of the series I check the battery and the number of shots left on the card and make sure that I can finish another series before starting one. At the end of a series of shots I noticed that the battery indicator was flashing and I only had room for 7 more shots so I made sure that all the images where on the card, no activity and changed the battery and the flash card, then started another sequence, 7 of the 10 shots in that sequence were duplicate names of the last 7 on the previous card, except the time was correct for the exposure, this happened again when I had to change the battery, but with 10 shots. Anyone else seen this? I know the latest firmware was supposed to correct some problems with bulb exposures but not this one.
