Sony V1 problem

Can a faulty XLR mic cause the video to jitter in low light filming even on Manual focus and iris.

Re: Sony V1 problem

Unlikely. What are your WB, Shutter, Steadyshot and FLICKR REDUCE settings? What is your light source?

Manual WB, shutter 60, tried steadyshot on and off but i did have flicker reduce on. Gain db6. The lighting was very poor but it happened at a dance show and lighting was fairly well. it seem to happen with heavy bass noise beat.

Re: Sony V1 problem

And this is on tape playback, or only in the LCD while you are shooting?

Re: Sony V1 problem

Heavy bass noise causes the problem? Sounds like it was affecting your steady shot. Was it on?

Re: Sony V1 problem

Is the jittering in time with the beat?

Re: Sony V1 problem

Can you post the video with audio so we can see what your jitter looks like?

Re: Sony V1 problem

Then I think the vibration from the beat is indeed affecting the Steadyshot. Remember, it's a moving element whether the OIS is on or off. I think the bass is shaking it.

But that's just a guess.

Re: Sony V1 problem

Well I have ordered a replacement mic as the sony one is rubbish. I hope it is just that. Its fine when I film sport on it and that is the bulk of my work. I really want a NX5 but that will have to wait until i have 3500 :(

Very highly unlikely. The two circuits don't really have anything to do with each other.
