    It looks like it's caused by the highlight being blown out. The info on the settings of the camera might help. It looks like a challenging day for video. Dark car dark clouds but also places where the sky and clouds are very bright..

    I had a buddy look at it he says he calls it zebra stripes. These are the settings if you need more
    Let me know. I appreciate the help. He said if I can get the camera off auto mode I may be able to fix it. I have no idea how to do that haven't began googling.

    Those are not Zebra Stripes. The Zebra Pattern is activated when you turn on the "Over Exposure Warning" in the settings and is only a guide to show you which parts of the image are being over-exposed, and as such would appear in the highlights not the shadows. It's never recorded onto the video file itself.

    That being said, I have seen some horrible footage from the Inspire1 (which uses the same camera under the hood), but have never seen that kinda artefacts.

    I agree with your mate that you should not shoot in Auto mode. Have you seen this on other videos or just this one?

    Yeah I have seen it in a few videos. Day shoot and night shoots. I mean the stripes actually appear on the video and photos. Look at the silver and white car that's with a picture. Really weird. Any advice on what settings to use and how to get it out of auto camera settings.
