up and down moving picture from V1E on a TV

I have to write it down, nobody will believe me

This morning I got a HDMI cable and connected it with the HDMI out of the camera and the HDMI in of a new HD-TV.
Then I focused an about 2 meter distant object.
A full zoom shot, adjusted the picture, with extended focus, as sharp as possible. Then I went and watched the picture on the new HD-TV. Picture is super, but ..............

Camera stands on a tripod; head is firm, no wind, since it is indoor.
Although I stand about 4 meters away from the camera, the picture on the TV doesn’t stands still. It moves vertically up and down, up to one centimetre. Only vertically, not sideways.
First I thought it is an earthquake or the house is shaking. (haha)

After I switched off “Steady shot”, the picture stops moving up and down.

Ever heard of this?

The manual of all cameras I have used that has image stabilization says to turn it off while using a tripod. Now you know why. There must be something that can fool image stabilization when the camera is perfectly still.

Shifting light frequencies/reflections, for one thing.

translation

That you have some flickering, if the camera stands on a tripod with >Steadyshot< on, is normal.
That was also the case with the older cameras; however this was not so noticeable. The Sensitivity of the cameras have improved in the course of the time, also image quality.

Generally the >Steadyshot< must be always be switched off, during use on a tripod, since minimum soil vibrations are passed on, over the tripod, to the camera and a conflict with the “Steadyshot” may occur

First thing I did, assigned a Button to >Steadyshot< on / off
