Clearscan (shooting multiple monitors at different Hz)

Does anyone know if there is some hidden ECS or clearscan option for this camera? I know the Z7 and EX1 or EX3 had them and been a life saver.

Seems the FS700 doesn't have it either.

Going to shoot multiple monitors in a different Hz variations.

What I have done on a number of occasions is ask the client / talent / customer if I can make a temporary change to their PC display. Most modern PCs graphics cards allow you to change the Hz refresh rate.

Right click on the desktop and select 'screen resolution.' Under the 'advanced' settings look under the 'monitor' tab and see if you can change the refresh rate to 50Hz. If you can do this the you can shoot at your normal 50Hz / 50i or maybe even 25p on the camera and not have a 10Hz flicker showing. Most PC displays seem to be 60Hz by default. If they are dead on 60Hz you can often kill the flicker by shooting at a 60th or 120th if your camera has those settings.

See pix for example of settings.
