BMPCC low light test / flickering lights

Hello all ,

Could you check my record at below.

Street lights are flickering.
What can be the cause of this problem? hardware , settings or shaky hands?

Those lights have a different frequency than your camera.
What was your fps and where in the world were you shooting?

I divine that you are in 50-Hz mains zone. So set angle to multiple of 108 degrees, maybe 324 if you use 30 fps. Also, as I've somewhere heard, 172.8 degrees could help with 60-Hz mains.
