    Can't find anything on this with the search function.

    Today, I developed some black and white lines on my tablet screen when viewing the live feed from my P3s.

    Never had these before but I have seen them on videos posted on Youtube and wondered what the heck they were.

    They don't show on the video recording, either, on the tablet or SD card.

    Anyone know what is causing this?

    It's not the sunshine through the props phenomenon, it's like parts of the picture won't load.

    I am using a ipad mini 4 which has worked flawlessly so far.

    Thanks

    Well, that's the shortest thread ever I've been scouring the internet for over an hour, trying to find that phenomenon! I'm sure I never pressed that expose yourself button but hey who knows, yet another senior moment.

    Thank you

    They are called zebras, modern cameras use them to show overexposing and also focus. It's worth using it as it will show you when the video or photo is washed out :)

    Actually, zebra is only for exposure. Professional tv cameras also have a function called Peaking. That's used for focus. :)
