Update. It's an Adobe Camera RAW issue. Setting the shot to "Camera Raw Defaults" gets rid of it. Then I brought back individual adjustments one at a time to see if it caused the flickering. White balance, no. Contrast down...yes. This is either strictly an Adobe problem or it's something DJI and Adobe need to iron out together. I remember something similar when dealing with Canon 5D Mark III/ML Raw files too.
So at this point:
AE CC2014 - Adobe Camera Raw contrast adjustments cause flickering. I'm assuming other adjustments cause it as well. White Balance seemed OK.
AE CC2015 - Seems to be OK all around. White balance and contrast/exposure changes made with no flickering.
This leads me to believe that Premiere Pro CC 2014 will have issues as well. Can anyone confirm? Anyone else seeing this in AE CC 2014 with Contrast adjustments?
Anyone else experienced it yet? ISO 100 looking at the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Will post a video shortly. Say it ain't so...it's pretty bad. X5 bad.
I'm actually experiencing that same issue, its more of an exposure flicker (subtle, but its there)..... I'm seeing this both in my exported cinemaDNG raw files as well as my h.264 proxies. It seems as if my settings were on auto exposure but that wasn't the case, I always had the settings on full manual. Are there defective units out there?
This is what the anti flicker option is for within the app.I had an interesting mess around with the X5R at night last night to push the low light. I was extremely worried at first in my test samples as it appeared to flicker under the lights. Just out of chance the flickering 100% went when I changed the frame rate I think it is the pulsing in the lights mixing with the 180 degree shutter? All
I know is once I set the shutter at night time to the frame rate, there was zero flickering (eg 4K 24fps (shutter same/close). When I had the shutter at double, that's when I saw the flickering. There was no flickering in shadows also.
My answer to post #7 was explaining the anti-flicker setting which is for combatting flicker caused by line frequency out of phase with shutter rate.Noticing it at random now. Nothing to do with shutter speed or lighting. Seems to mostly show up in 4K/24 and almost never in UHD/30. Although I have shot stuff in 4K/24 that doesn't flicker.

What you are experiencing is to do with the fact DJI are clueless when it comes to codecs and the interplay between Intra-frame, GOP structure, and bit rate.
They also (in an effort to make the camera appear better than it actually is) use a dynamic knee point which floats around all over the place!
