GH4 Video
Jun 2, 2014

Regardless of what Photo Style I use for video recording in 4K UHD, whenever panning (even slowly) there is always a shimmer in the video. This is using 25.00p and 100Mbps MP4 (LPCM).

But dropping that down to HD 1920x1080, 50.00p and 100Mbps and slow panning, the video is relatively smooth.

To me it appears that the lower 25.00p frame rate is the culprit, and seems to infer that if you need to pan in video, don't use 4K. I live in PAL land, and haven't yet tried switching to NTSC and recording at 30.00p, but wondering if it would make much difference.

Any thoughts and/or help are appreciated.
