Movie scenes recorded in bright light do not play back smoothly.

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check the Applicable Products and Categories section of this article before starting these steps.

    When shooting movies in direct natural or artificial light, the shutter speed of the lens may increase automatically. It does this to try maintaining the correct exposure when shooting in a bright environment. This may sometimes result in the movie scene not appearing smooth during playback.

    To minimize the issue when shooting in a bright environment, set the mode to Shutter Priority or Manual Exposure to slow the shutter speed, or use an ND filter to lower the brightness level when ND filters are available. 

    IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product.
