Hi there,
i was working on a TV series for a day, some days ago. Today i met the AD of that team and he told me that they got bad news from the post house. Some of the alexa footage shot on my b-cam had serious picture failures. He told me that they had green vertical lines running through the whole picture. That lines started to occur during the day and could be seen on all the different monitors on set. Post house says it´s a chip problem, whatever that means...
Do you guys have heard of any problem like this? I didn´t see any of that stuff he talked about on my steadicam monitor so i guess it didn´t happen while i was shooting with that camera. The camera was a brand new Alexa Plus.

All the best
