Do you have MP4 set for the recording format?

4K recording uses motion JPEG (MJPG) which requires using the MOV format.

Thank you! That was it! Is there any mention in the manual about this?

The manual does say MJPG recording is selectable under the MOV format (Pg 355]. And the only option for 4k recording uses MJPG as noted in the table on pg 356. I believe I read about this in a early review and thought it was a strange decision. Otherwise I probably would have needed to flip between manual pages multiple times before it became obvious.
