Flicker Reduction
If you are unsure as to the frequency of the local power supply, test both 
options and choose the one that produces the best results. Flicker 
reduction may not produce the desired results if the subject is very 
bright, in which case you should try choosing a smaller aperture (larger 
f-number). The desired results may also not be achieved in high-
sensitivity movie mode or, due to the fact the selected shutter speed is 
not always used, during exposure preview (
0 57). To prevent flicker 
during exposure preview, select mode h and choose a shutter speed 
adapted to the frequency of the local power supply:
