I recently did test shoot with sony F 55 4k camera & found that image was choppy during panning & tilt. Shutter 180°(global shutter) ,Pls guide how to avoid it.

You'd have to show us the shot before anyone could say definitively, but this may be normal. 24fps is not very fast, and fast panning can look bad.

It should look the same as any other camera with a 180 degree shutter.  Like Phil said, 24fps with a 180 degree shutter has some strobe to motion even when shooting on film, that's just the normal look due to the fact that 24 fps isn't a very high sampling rate for fast motion.

 

But if there is some unusual motion effect going on that isn't the normal 180 degree shutter look, then something wrong is happening in playback, post, somewhere.

There is a double scan mode in the VF menu if you dislike the inherent "stutter" of panning with 24/25p   180 shutter..   Version 4.. or 4.1.. can help with focus but actually doesn't look very nice in the VF.. :)
