View Full Version : GH2 Banding and Recording Monitors

03-17-2012, 06:27 PM
Hi fellow dvxuser, I have recently got my GH2 and I am currently recording my first short.

I have ran into a problem however. We have a couple scenes where a computer monitor is in the screen and the refresh rate banding is coming through really badly.

I know this wasn't a problem with CCD Cameras.

Is there a fix for this?

Use an LCD.

Yes, using two laptops and my LCD.

Change your shutter speed until you find where it goes away.

This can also be a problem with fluoro lighting fixtures.

...and yes...as far as I know one will encounter the same issue with CCD cameras. It's not a sensor type thing....it's a shutter speed thing.

Try using ETC mode.

Make sure the LCD monitors are at their maximum brightness settings. Sometimes the backlight brightness is adjusted by flickering frequency, especially in the case of LED backlit displays. A lower shutter speed should also eliminate it.
