HMI flicker with Canon 5d MK II

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


Back when the 5D first got the manual control update I briefly tested it under HMIs in Toronto. There was a pretty bad issue with the sensor reading those gross bars refreshing across the screen. I was wondering if anyone has found a way around this. I tried shooting at all the shutter speeds and nothing seemed to get rid of this. Mind you this was a little while ago and I can't quite remember what the best option was, but I know I was not satisfied with the end result. If anyone had some information on how to go about shooting under HMIs I would love to hear it as I have a project coming up that really would benefit from HMIs.

Thanks in advance,


Ian Carleton

It was a little while ago but I fairly sure we tried the camera with both types. We were testing at a rental house so were able to try some different options. Since im not certain im curious if anyone else has had any success with this.
