Video "blinks" while recording (5D II)

Issue #2634 new
Former user created an issue

Sometimes video "blinks" while recording - one frame becomes a bit more exposed than the others once in a while. Like +1 or +0,5 stop. Not sure about the exact rate but I'd guess that this lighter frame appears something like twice a minute.

Seems like turning off Focus Peaking fixes the problem but didn't test this theory properly. Have been using ML for more than a year with Focus Peaking and never encountered such a problem before.

Attached the short clip where you can see the "blinking frame" closer tho the end of the clip.

    With these settings, what is the probability for the blinking frame to appear in one-minute clips?

    (just looking for a way to reproduce the problem)

    I just filmed five videos with the strange result.

    1. FP on - blinking frame appeared 5 times during 25 sec (MVI_5089)
    2. FP off - blinked once during 25 sec (MVI_5090)
    3. then i put another CF card with no ML on it and filmed the whole minute with no blinking frame (MVI_5091)
    4. i put the ML-card back and filmed 1 min again with FP off and didn't see any blinking frame (MVI_5092)
    5. FP on, 1 min: blinked at least once, my eyes are very tired now :) (at 0:35, MVI_5093)

    Can send you test videos if you would like to study them more properly

    Ok, i'm new with mágic lantern. Where can I change this setting? I hace the zebra patern off. Thank you for your help.

    Cant find that setting. I don,t have the zebra on. Just focus peaking and mágic zoom. Is there other things I could try. Thank you
