A phenomenon like this may occur when pictures are shot under lighting conditions such as fluorescent, sodium-vapor, mercury-vapor, or incandescent lighting. This phenomenon is called flicker. If this phenomenon occurs, try the following.

NOTE: Some functions may not be available depending on the model unit.

  • Adjusting the shutter speed.
    NOTES: Shutter speed settings to reduce flicker depend on the power supply frequency in your region. We recommend that you set the shutter speed to 1/50 in regions where it is 50 Hz, and to 1/60 in regions where it is 60 Hz.
  • On a camera that lets you adjust the setting for the electronic front curtain shutter, select Off.
  • On a camera that lets you set the Shutter Type, select Mechanical Shut.
