An evening of sound art performances at Ace Art on 20160805. With so much else going on in the city on a Friday night it was good to see a nice size crowd.

Cameras used here ... BMPCC with a Pentax wide zoom lens. A Panasonic GM1 with a nice voigtlander 35mm, GM5 with an old takumar lens, and GX7 with Pentax Limited lenses. And a Olympus Air A01 using the Android app.

The rooms lights were LEDs I believe and they caused problems when shooting with the GX7's electronic shutter. I use the electronic shutter because it is silent. However it scans the camera sensor slower and the LEDs slow flicker causes banding in the image. I researched this a bit and the solution may be to use a very slow shutter speed or choose a shutter speed that syncs in multiples of 60. I have images at 1/50 that did not work. 1/60 seemed to work okay. But if the LEDs are on a dimmer then this still might be a problem.
