Question for anyone who owns a ATC3K camera

If you have a film that is about 1GB how long does it take to move over to your machine?

and do you find the video a bit jerky?

I’ve always took the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader so it’s quicker. Can’t remember how long it takes i’ve not used mine for ages.

as for it being jerky, do you have an example to show?

Jerk turned out to be because I was viewing from the device itself, once moved onto the machine it ran fine so that is sorted.

Just a little surprised it took nearly 20 minutes to move a 1GB onto my PC.

The cameras interface is USB 1.1 on which the max transfer rate is 1.5MB/s, which equates to about 11-12 mins at maximum speed. The hardware won’t necessarily operate at that rate, however, so 20 mins doesn’t seem excessive.If you have USB 2.0 ports on your PC then get a USB 2.0 card reader and the transfer rate will improve drastically (it’s technically 40 times faster).

Cheers knight explains alot. I did not know they were based on nearly 10 year old technology in actual fact isn’t 1.1 older than 10 years!Think I have a card reader on the machine at home but been testing it at work.

i threw mine in the bin and bought a contour HD

ATC really bad…
