RX10 IV - I can't obtain smooth 4K videos (while panning)

Hi guys,

last week I got my RX10 IV. I really like the camera and I consider it a good upgrade from my old Panasonic FZ1000.

I bought Alexander White's book which is really helpful in using the camera.

While I'm very happy with the RX10 IV, I'm having an issue when filming 4K videos (both in 60mbps and 100mbps).

In Auto mode or S mode, I always get a video that doesn't playback in a smooth way (both in camera or in my PC) when I pan the camera (I see the result "live" while filming as well).

I use a SanDisk Extreme PRO 64 GB SDXC 95 MB/Sec write speed (Class 10, U3, V30) card, so this shouldn't be the issue.

In S mode I tried all shutter speeds from 1/10 (very choppy of course) up to 1/1000 (still choppy while panning).

I can see the same "choppy" effect in my LCD of viewfinder while filming as well on my PC or 4K TV when I playback the video.

If I record the video in XAVC S HD instead of 4K, things are very smooth.

What could be the problem and is there a fix?

Thank you very much!
