Morning Guys!

I´m frustrated of the film quality of my 5D IV.
I ordered a expensive gimbal for filming and tried it in the last few days.
The films show "micro-jerks". Like you do a timelapse.
I save it on my fast CF Card. The jerks occure at FHS, also in 4K.
I tried all apertures and exposure times and tried all video-codecs in the body.

Do know, which setting I should check also?

Thank you very much

It seems to be gimbal problem. Gimbal tries to stabilize but reaches its limits and jumps.
Try to have the camera steady, on a tripod without gimbal, and shoot a scene if the same problem happens it is the camera's fault.
Perhaps calibrating the gimbal again may be helpful.

Would you take advice from a cartoons stuffed toy?

Without seeing it it’s impossible to say but what computer are you running it on and how? You might be getting buffering.

Thank you, but it is an hardware problem. Meanwhile the camera does not respond to buttons or wheels, the rear display is just flickering. I will send it to CPS.
