    Solved this by the way… needed to turn off “HDMI Info display”.

    Hey Blaise, thanks for the reply. I actually have a monitor that supports exposure, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to set it to 70db… as such, I’m only seeing stripes on OVER exposure. It’s a $330 monitor… seems kinda silly. It’s this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Lilliput-665-Hot-shoe-Function/dp/B008FJYBQ2/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=lilliput+665%2Fs&qid=1602893758&s=electronics&sr=1-1

    Currently trying to work with Liliput support to make it work, but not getting anywhere. I definitely don’t want to fall into this trap again, but not finding a lot of info out there on whether or not I can set the zebra stripe levels in the same way that one could set a camera’s.

    Ah forgive me, I thought this was a different post of mine. Deleting previous comment.

    Hey Paul,

    It seems like you have a very different use case than me, but my problem was solved by shifting away from ‘face recognition’ focus entirely.

    The problem was that the GH4 tries to recognize where a face is GOING, to keep up with the subject… but that makes the thing go haywire with little slight changes in direction.

    I switched back to ‘choose a part of the frame to focus on by selecting a bunch of specific squares’ mode, and just widened the field to include more squares that I was likely to be in.

    Camera still sucks for any kind of movement related stuff… in my opinion.

    Hey thanks Eric. This is what I have:

    Which really doesn’t seem to be working well for me.

    Hey Richard,

    This is the cord that I’m currently using:

    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=email&A=details&Q=&sku=1221867&is=REG

    I don’t know WHAT is going on… perhaps I’ll export some audio samples that I got from the same mic wired directly into my nexfs100 vs my panasonic gh4.

    There’s literally no bass in the GH4…

    I tried your recommendation with the audio tracks and i THINK that there’s an improvement… but I still have to add a parametric EQ to fix the low end.

    Not 100% sure what I should do from here, but I’ll try to get you guys some audio when I’m done editing later today.

    Thank you for your time and help!

    I bought that osmo and wanted to throw it out the damn window! Omg, that thing was terrible. Nice Gimbal, but loud fan, no battery life, difficult to set down… terrible. Anyhow…

    Out of curiosity, what were you using to compress your videos? (program and cpu power?) I’m wondering if a higher quality compression would have eliminated any such artifacts.

    That’s interesting about netflix… I always assumed that I would be fine exporting in 24p with perhaps the occasional frame discrepancy.

    I should have shot it in 29.97 but I wasn’t on the NTSC format, so it wasn’t an option. I was brand new to the camera, and didn’t know that i had to switch frequencies to unlock different frame rates, so I just said ‘screw it’ and banged it out in 24p.

    It was actually a ‘how to’ series on butchering deer… which I didn’t think had enough movement to create a noticible strobe effect. I also should have checked out the shutter speed, but figured it would have been fine considering I was just using presets.

    In any event, I suppose now it’s time to find the filter in AE which will allow me to fix this!

    Hey George,

    I was able to replicate everything what you said, so thanks man. That said, I notice one strange thing…

    When the camera is set on C1, C2, or C3 I hear a very nice and satisfying camera clicking sound when I click the button… I even feel the camera doing something!

    On the M setting, and I think even the P setting for that matter, there is almost no indication that a picture has been taken…

    So, I guess my question is…. what the heck is going on that I’m missing in those other settings?

    Thanks again for your reply!
