Re: Sony A7s Silent Mode Serious Banding Problem

The electronic shutter travel across the frame is much slower than the mechanical shutter; so as the LED light flickers faster than the shutter travel, you'll get bands of bright and dark. Check what the flash sync speed is with electronic shutter enabled and that's probably the maximum shutter speed that you'll be able to use in that situation.

BTW, this is not rolling shutter. Rolling shutter is where a new scan starts before the previous one is finished during video recording. Depending on the shutter speed and frame rate, you may get several scans going at once.
