Flickering Pictures

Post by alisterchapman » February 2nd, 2011, 9:31 pm

Some users experience pictures that flicker when they use the shutter. This can occur under any lighting conditions. the most common cause appears to be the "flicker reduce" function in the camera menu. The default is "Auto". I recommend you turn this off. It's supposed to help reduce flicker when you are shooting in countries that have a different mains frequency to the cameras frame rate, for example shooting at 30P or 60i in Europe where the mains is 50hz.

Hi Alister

I have noticed this when using a top light.

I have a z96 whenever i have it one full, i have horrible flicker horizontal lines.

I down the shutter to 1/33.

Is it best to turn the shutter off? How can i combat this?

Thanks

Ollie :)

Check that you have flicker reduce set to off. Otherwise it sounds like the frequency of the z96 is too low for the camera. I don't know this lamp so can't really comment. Does changing the dimmer setting alter the banding, I suspect it will. I would certainly never shoot with a shutter faster than 1/60th for this kind of light.
