Has anybody succeeded in capturing a time-lapse longer than 200 images with no flickering and major exposure change?
I have tested the camera several times now and it struggles to maintain the same exposure causing annoying flickering and making the time-lapse look very unprofessional and pretty much useless.
I tested video and photo (day and night) time-lapse modes with and without PT and the issue persists. A quick glance at the EXIF shows that for some reason the camera changes shutter speed even though there is no major change in scene light. The following EXIF data comes from 4 consecutive shots, taken with 5 second interval (even though the first shot recorder an incorrect time for some reason) during a sunny day. As you can see, the shutter speed and exposure time values differ from picture to picture and also within one picture. I thought that the shutter speed and exposure time is the same thing so I don't understand why it varies within one picture.
The second EXIF chart shows even a more drastic change in exposure within a 5 second interval.
This is really dissapointing and I expect a more consistent performance from this camera given its proce tag! I never had such issues with a much cheaper Insta 360 One or Ricoh Theta. I hope this can be addressed and resolved soon.

And finally, I really think it would be a great idea to add an option to lock shutter speed to a particular value. This would give the user complete control over the camera :)

I got in touch with support and the response I got: "Use frame blanding softaware"!
However, they did say that they will pass this on to the team so maybe a future fix is coming.
