  • Set the shutter speed to improve the flicker phenomenon according to the region you are using the camera.
  • If you use LED lights other than for movies, there is a case where horizontal stripes appear in the image. To prevent this phenomenon, use the LED light exclusive for movies.

NOTE: Not all camcorders or cameras have the capability of manually changing the shutter speed. Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the camcorder to check for available shutter speed options.
