Check to see if your camera is getting hot about 52 minutes in. If your camera has been running continously the motor is gonna get warm. After 45 minutes I’m getting warm. If your shoot is going to be more than an hour and less than two switch tapes at 45 – 50 minutes.
The tape could be sticking due to variations in storage tempatures. Fast forward your
tapes to the end and then rewind them. Make sure you give your camera time to cool off
and recharge before your shoot.
I’ve gotten very crafty with my transitions over the last couple of years.
