Note: Performances of the camera under poor lighting conditions
Our team has noticed two issues can be seen under poor lighting and specific gains:
1) Vertical banding in a semi ellipse shape on the left and right edges of the frames at gains of 6 and 12dB (see image by clicking here).
2) Moving vertical banding more apparent at high gain (see demo video at https://youtu.be/
The imperfections above will be resolved through a free upcoming software update. We are also exploring the possibilities of using a script to mitigate those issues. A great way to mitigate those issues for the time being is to operate at 0dB of gain and light the scene enough. We highly recommend using high quality LED lights such as Godox or similar brands because of their great performances at high speed and their reasonable price. Existing video editing software such as DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Premiere also offer interesting denoise features to improve the quality of your slow motion videos substantially.
