How do I avoid banding when shooting video indoors?

Static or scanning banding may occur as a result of interference between the flicker rate of light sources and the video sampling rate. These bands will only be seen in Live View or the video image...

Static or scanning banding may occur as a result of interference between the flicker rate of light sources and the video sampling rate. These bands will only be seen in Live View or the video image, but not in photos. We recommend using the shortest possible exposure times to minimize these effects. In some cases, it may also be helpful to use a shutter speed of 1/50 of a second. When shooting video, use the 1/50 of a second setting; this speed is between 30 and 60 on the shutter speed dial. In countries with 60 Hz mains power frequency, we recommend the corresponding shutter speed of 1/60 of a second.

I use a fast SD card, but video recording fails after a few minutes.

If a card is severely fragmented, recording may fail due to the card’s inability to record such high data rates. We recommend reformatting the card when this happens.
