There were 4 clips in succession, all around 3 to 5 seconds in length with nothing but white frames.
The clips before and after were all fine, and no footage was missing from what we shot.
Also we were getting an irregular problem while using a BFD system powered from camera and using remote run.
Occasionally the camera would cut by itself, after having been rolled by the hand unit. This happened maybe five times over three days.
We never had this problem if the camera was rolled via camera body.
This is the first time I've seen such issues with the Alexa after half a dozen or so jobs.
Anyone else had similar problems or know anything about the mystery clips?

If it only happens with the remote, it's a pretty good bet that the culprit is the remote, rather than the Alexa.
True, a fair assumption.
But the 'white' clips are very mysterious.
If anyone else has seen this, please let me know.
