Dear PAL countries users.

Please be aware that the camera is producing severe scrolling waves due to non-synced shutter when shooting under artificial light.

It makes it completely useless for any night scenery shots, pro lighting (or just fun home videos).

Here are two samples (until I will upload my own).

Hope to get 25p and 50Hz shutter in future updates to overcome this problem.


Thanks.

There is a workaround for this...you need a manual lens tho and its not perfect...you use exposure lock ...and point camera at a midtone with aperture shut a little..if you hold it on the wall or whatever and move camera around this minutely changes exposure and you will see momentarily the waves disapear..at that point use exposure lock then adjust using f-stop.
no more nasty waves.
not a perfect solution but it does work.

It looks like turd.

This is the worse thing about the camera at the mo, stair step and compression I can live with.

Those waves are not always there but everytime I see these scrolling waves I leave LiveView and change the arperture (in Av mode) and the waves are gone. I can then even return to the original arperture and the waves are no longer there. Not a real issue for me. Just don't use Automatic Mode.

Av mode?
do you mean Aperture Priority Mode (A)?
