  1. I was called by Nikon Support yesterday, and they told me that there will be a firmware update for the problem, maybe in the next or the one after the next.
  2. I tried again with artificial light and RAW (N-LOG OFF - btw I do not quite understand the difference between RAW with N-LOG ON and RAW with N-LOG OFF - does this make any difference?). This time there was fo flicker at 100 or 400, but again flicker at 160. All clips were about 3-5 minutes long. I do not know if it really is that some ISO settings always produce flickering and others not, or if it depends on the light situation you are filming. If so, it would be impossible to know if there will be flicker when filming with artificial light. This would make the camera unusable.
  3. I tested the same desk setting today again. The flickering does not come up when it is only lit by sun light. When I added a desklamp (with a normal light bulb, no LED) the flicker was there again. The Nikons flicker reduction did not change anything, whether set to „automatic“, „50 hz“ or „60hz". maybe there is a problem with the flicker reduction, not working when recording externally? but I wonder if it really was like this that there are not more people reporting this problem?
  4. happens in both n-log and raw external. not in internal flat. z-log i did not try. I think I will now stop my Nikon time. This is unbearable.
  5. Hello, I have the same problem with my Z6 (Firmware 2.2, with ProRes RAW): When recording videos with N-LOG or RAW (I had the problem already before RAW was unlocked) with an Atomos Ninja V Recorder there is a flickering, especially in shadows and dark parts of the image. IT MAKES THE RECORDING UNUSABLE. I tried a motive (books on a desk in a room at night, only a desk lamp with normal old bulb – so no LEDs, TVs, projectors) with all ISO settings. The flickering came up at these ISO settings: 160 (extreme!), 320, 400, 500, 640, 1600, 2500, 3200, 4000. It did not occur at these: 100, 125, 200, 250, 800, 1000, 1250, 2000, 5000, 6400, 8000,10000,12800,16000. I changed the Nikons flicker reduction from "automatic" to "50 hz" to "60 hz", did not change anything. I have to say I am desperate. I invested in a Z6 with the Atomos Ninja V plus a Nikon Z 24-70 2.8 lens, mostly for using it in theatres, filming dance performances with theatre lights, sometimes with video projections, and at the moment it is really not useable. But if everybody would have this problem with this gear, I suppose there would be a bigger shitstorm going on? So maybe it is really my camera, or the Ninja V that needs to be repaired? Did anyone of you have his device repaired or exchanged? Mrtz
