Is this an example of rolling shutter phenonemon?

One of our videographers shot this today with a 5D Mark II. I've never seen camera flashes come out this way on any of his other videos.

Yep, that's exactly what that is. The duration of the other camera's flash is shorter than a single video frame, creating "flashing banding" in a few consecutive frames (due to most cameras having a pre-flash for focus assistance). You'll get it with strobes at parties, too. It's caused from the pixels of the CMOS sensor being scanned from top to bottom one line at a time, rather than simultaneously like a CCD sensor. The effect it has on a CCD sensor is different brightnesses from frame to frame instead of banding, due to the timing of the flash. If a flash goes off at the beginning of a given frame, that frame would be brighter than the one following it where the flash only lasted for a fraction of the duration of the video frame. There's a trade-off though. CCD sensors will give light-streaks (think flashlights, candles, christmas lights, light bulbs, etc) which appear as either vertical or horizontal, edge-to-edge streaks that emit from light sources.

An easy way to deal with this in post is to just use a white flash for the whole frame. Strobe lights firing quickly are probably something not ideal for a CMOS camera, but that is a rare occasion.

BTW, its "phenomenon".

Good evening,

If you shoot many weddings, you better get the software that cleans that up for you!! I believe its new blu. It will save a lot of time. I shoot two cameras and i just swap cameras when that happens. as my second camera is a ccd camera.

PHENOMENON

You are correct, Marcus. I can spell, I just can't type...:)
