last sunday we shot a show (fashion), we had 4 cameras and the show was lit by led panels.

as in europe we did set all cams to 25fps and 1/50s

problem is that in post we discovered that we have flickering on all images.

actually it seems it wasn't the led panels but candellars on the ceilling with probably cheap led bulbs that did it.

my question is:

how can you see you have flicker on the modern cameras ? none of us saw the flicker on screens, we had xt3, c300, sony a6400 and canon 5d mkii

is there any tool or app that could help prevent this ?

Ive seen somewhere on forums tips about flicker issues and if memory serves me well .

Make duplicate of footage on timeline and shift it by frame this way you would get rid of flicker 

The downside is u will introduce blury image

 Hope it helps

Honestly you can see the flicker on my GH5, but only if you actively look for it. I've had many instances where I was just running and gunning and didn't notice it.

Yah i actually forgot about syncro scan 

Best option to get rid of flicker.
