I am having inconsistent results while taking time-lapses. I have batches where almost all images are incomplete/garbled/not fully-rendered while other images are perfect. Then, I'll get a batch where all images are perfect with exception of 1 or 2.
Initially, I thought there was a problem writing images on-the-fly to a mounted Samba/cifs share (established with /etc/fstab), so I started writing them locally instead. Unfortunately, this didn't remedy the issue.
So, my thought it that it must something with my camera settings. Any help is appreciated from those with time-lapse experience.
I have a Raspberry Pi Model B+ with the V2 NoIR camera module.
Time-lapse code that takes a picture every 2 seconds over 60 seconds:
raspistill -bm --nopreview -ex sports -e jpg -t 60000 -tl 2000 -vf -hf -w 1920 -h 1080 -o ~/hallway/image%04d.jpg

I'm hoping this will remedy any type of write related issues that this problem might stem from as suggested. Fingers crossed. Will post an update when I receive the product and perform additional tests.
