    Hi Cows

    This year I decided to add 3 new xf605s to the herd – shot 18 shows with them as a 3 cam.

    I was just editing and I noticed that my a Roll footage has a 18 second spot where the frame looks “jigglely” – almost like if you are shooting through heat. – the footage looks good before and after… – it was recorded in 1080i 60 (for this particular job)

    Im just wondering if this is a camera issue, or a Card issue? – almost like a rolling shutter, but vertical, not horz like if you pan too fast, etc… which I never usually do –

    I re-encoded the footage again to ProRes 422 – and no change. I was shooting on a tripod and very stationary – I uploaded the very short 15-18 sec clip… (made an mp4 of it) –

    Forgive this very late posting, but I ran across this post and noticed no one had responded. So FWIW, my thoughts are image stabilization fighting for control. I don’t have any experience w/ the 605, but I know on our C100s we try and turn off all stabilization controls, even on the lens, whenever mounted to a tripod, for this very reason–a concern that whatever image stabilization exists in/on the camera ends up fighting the otherwise stable tripod. And wondered too, depending on where you were located, whether there was a tremor on the platform, like someone bumped it.

    Anyway, my seat-of-the-pants first impression after looking at the footage. Am guessing/hoping you eventually figured it out, and if so would love to know what you learned.
