HERO8 STROBE EFFECT WHEN FILMING UNDER LED LIGHTING

[ New ]

HI

 

I have purchased the HERO8 and have been filming in my garage which is illuminated with LED strip lights. I initially noticed a lot of flickering on the output so did some reserach and found out that I had to set the anti-flicker to 50HZ. This reduced the problem dramatically but I still get a slow strobe effect. My assumption is my mains supply to the garage is slightly off 50Hz so the slow moving light and dark patches on the screen (bottom to top) is amplifying the issue.

 

How can I fix this? Are there any settings on the camera? Can I remove the strobing during editing (easily)?

 

I have the media mod, so would purchasing the lighting mod overcome the issue?

 

Any help appreciated. I'm in the UK

 

Cheers Nigel

Hi @amgv8

 

What are the settings used?

Do you have Protune turned on?

Would you be able to share a sample file?


Thanks!
