[Chris Stevens]"The manual does not explain "Flicker Reduce Mode"."
Actually, the manual does talk about it to some extent on pages 50 and 98, at least in the EX1 manual. To sum up, you can set the flicker reduce function to:
- be on all the time
- set to auto where it only activates when flicker is detected
You can also set the frequency to 50 Hz or 60Hz, so you're right on the mark. The manual also states:
"If the frame rate selected for recording is close to the power supply frequency, flicker may not be reduced sufficiently even if you activate the Flicker-Reduce function. In such cases, use the electronic shutter."
This last statement is Sony's disclaimer or "get-out-of-jail-free" card with regard to how well the function will...........function.
