Brief flicker when recording video over 15 seconds of video with 5D MKII

Hello All...

I was shooting some long takes with my Canon 5D MKII and noticed a very quick, faint "flash" (or single flicker) every 15 seconds or so (It happens randomly ).

Changed the CF card (32GB UMDA 7 400x Transcend cards) , changed to fresh batteries... it is still there.
I was shooting using Magic Lantern on the Cf Cards.

I haven't noticed this before using the same cards etc.

Any ideas of what it could be?

Thanks

Based on the description of the shot, I say you got it standing near a cel phone tower. Those strobes go off very regularly AND quickly, y'know...

Was in a remote area both times... not a cell phone tower anywhere. it's a quick jump in the footage...

Sounds like it's time to send the camera back to the factory for repair.
