What SSD are you using and when is the last time you formatted it?

I had a serious RAW playback issue (all footage was fine once loaded on computer) when I first got my camera and it turned out to be how I formatted my SSD. Once I reformatted and defaulted the Allocation Size to 128KB, everything was fine.

Sandisk 240gb, formatted in macdrive HFS+, formatted everytime after dumping footages.
i never had this problem until lately.
its not a big deal since it doesnt ruin my footages, id like to see this bug go away though.
i dont have problems with prores.

also based on the video, is it exactly the same issue as yours?

no, it's not...I just thought it might be related. Since it seems to only be a playback issue and not a recording one. I found the playback "engine" in the BMCC was pretty particular on you it wanted to read from the SSD, so if I played around with the formatting options, it didn't like it. Footage was always ok though.

Have you reformatted since the flickering began?

if you actually freeze frame around :04 you'll see its like it has something to do with the debayering or decoding :\
