Recently I shot some B-roll with one of our HVX200's and when I was performing a pan I noticed that the image seemed to jump in the LCD screen for about 1 frame. I noticed that I had my hand near the zoom ring when I was doing the pan so just attributed the jump to me nudging the ring by accident and shot a second take.

A few weeks later I shot this footage:



and saw the same thing happening during some of the pans, noticable in the first part of the video with the girl surfer. I shot this footage at various frame rates from 29.97 to 48 fps and don't know if that has anything to do with it, though the B-roll I mentioned was shot at 29.97fps.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Dave

From the looks of it, I would suspect the camera's Optical Image Stabilizer is overcompensating. Next time you notice the issue in-camera, I would suggest turning off the OIS and seeing if it makes a difference.
