    I notice that some of my videos have a flickering effect to them which I think is caused by the prop blades rapidly passing in front of the light source (ie the sun). Are there any settings or techniques that I can try to reduce this? I have a P4 and have Litchi.

    The best way to work around this issue is by slowing down the shutter speed. You can do that by using an ND filter.

    Try to keep the sun to the rear of the camera. Prop flicker is caused from prop shadows at just the right angle.

    If you're talking about video jitters, the ND filter msinger mentioned is the solution. I typically use ND16 on an average sunny day. ND32 is good for snow with bright sun. I usually shoot 1080@60fps so my goal is 120 shutter speed.
