Hello again folks,
I’m wondering if anyone has had issues pointing a camera at an LCD monitor? It may just be that my LCD monitor is a bit old and not current tech. My monitor was like $1500 when new… 12+ years ago and is a Dell 2407WFPb. It was a super high quality panel, 1920x1200 and works great to this day. But doesn’t look good in frame on video (Sony a6400, 1080p 30fps).
When I point a camera at my monitor, it shows banding/pulsing/flickering. Is this just a symptom of an old monitor?
This video illustrates the monitor flickering, but the proposed solution doesn’t make sense to me as my monitor under question supports various framerates. I would have thought it would be an older style backlight or something (fluorescent backlit LCD vs newer LED backlit).
Do newer monitors do this at all? Do you all just point a camera at your monitor and it looks ok (assuming exposure ok)? I’m happy to buy a new monitor if that is the proven solution.
