It's uploaded to:

In my opinion that's perfectly normal motion blur. Any object in motion is going to have blur in front of and behind it. The solid-color area in the middle is just the overlap, it'll have ghosted images before it and after it.

Try panning against something that's got high contrast, like a white fence against a dark background, and you'll see "ghosting" both in front and behind.

I don't know that it's a technical term :-) But the previous that is described is really just a hard description of the "picket fence test."

But looking at your still? It's normal motion blur, as Barry mentions.

Something else than motion blurr

Untill now all the footage (stills) I have seen from the FX1 seem very dark !!!! like it is heavily underexposed. Is this due to the inexperience of the operator or is the FX1/Z1 just not very good in low light conditions. Maybe someone can upload some footage to prove to me that the fx1/z1 is capable in producing well exposed material with good colour saturation !!!!!! I was planning to buy the z1 but now I am leaning back to the PD170
