Does anyone have trouble with time lapse skipping photos?

Do any of you have trouble with your GoPro freezing during Time-lapse Photos?
 
My GoPro Hero 6 has problems with Time-lapse photo mode, which is especially frustrating. I have the latest firmware (just redid it manually too), I've tried two different MicroSD cards of the fastest UHS-3 recommended Sandisk variety.
 
I've played around with every setting imaginable. I've tried it while plugged into power. I've tried it with screensaver and auto sleep deactivated. Sometimes after a battery pull it works. But most of the time it decides to just *not* take photos for a few seconds to a few minutes, or just stops completely and then when I try to stop it the GoPro freezes for a minute or so or needs a battery pull. The front screen freezes at "saving" but again, I've tried it with two different UHS-3 memory cards. And it saves and plays back 4K 60fps video just fine.
 
Those of you who work hard to put the camera in a spot for a time-lapse know how annoying it can be to have to climb back to the spot because the camera refuses to record.
 
I took a screen capture of my phone when it happens, and a video that shows the results of skipping frames, but I can't attach videos to this forum. Just to reconfirm, those frames are gone, nowhere in camera, because it simply did not take them.
 
It's so saddening, because I love time-lapses, and I've lost so... SO many hours and videos to this problem.

Re: Does anyone have trouble with time lapse skipping photos?

Not sure what's going on, but as far as posting videos, you can if it's on YouTube or Vimeo. If you're using a mobile device to view the forum, scroll to the bottom of this page. Where it says "Version: Mobile|Full" you need to select "Full". When replying, use "Reply" not "Quick Reply". There is a menu above the subject body. Use the video icon to imbed a video in the subject body.

GoPro Hero 6 Failed Night Photo Timelapse Dec 24 2017

 

 

GoPro freezes and skips frames.

Memory Card: SanDisk Extreme PLUS 64GB microSDXC U3 Card

Issue also produced with SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB microSDXC U3 Card

Issue ALSO produced with a second GoPro Hero 6 I purchased today (it is an updated cosmetic model with the color logo on front). I updated the firmware to 1.60 as soon as I got it, I wish I hadn't.

 

Settings were:

Night Lapse Photo
Shutter: Auto
Interval: Auto
FOV: Wide
Protune: Off

Just another view of a Night Lapse Photo from the app's perspective. Same issue, but you can see the frames being skipped. It is the same issue on camera.

I have the same problem. The time laps modus stops completly after a while.
Did you found a solution?

Re: Does anyone have trouble with time lapse skipping photos?

Yes, this happens to me too.

 

Usually I get something like 100 photos (2, 5, or 10 sec. delay, RAW, PT), and then the APP reports "Camera Busy", and I get no more frames.
