It's not sufficient to run the proper speed.

You see, there are "blank" lines (dark ones) in beetween frames.

If your camera is not synchronized, you get these lines on your image.

There is an accessory that allows you to synchronize your camera, but if you can't rent it, you can also try to turn on/off your camera until you are synchronized...

Hi lama,
the easier is shooting an LCD screen.
are you 50hz or 60hz power supply? 25fps with 50hz, 30 fps with 60.
and shoot with a cinematography precision speed control I or II and push phase knob until get rid of frame line.
regard
Mikael.

Or not to neglect the other well-known brands:
Tobin Cinema Systems far less expensive current models TMC2 or TMC, or the old model TMC55.
Or if you are in the USA, we make the Videoframe Controller with just 23.976 and 29.970 with phase button.
Media Logic (no longer made.)
