Strobing in video footage????

Noticed something odd today when reviewing my footage.
For some reason there is strobing in the footage, it's especially noticeable in 2.7k shot at 25p.
All settings were manual, just thought is was the sensor resolving grass and trees but when I viewed it in FCPX with a waveform I can defiantly see strobing going on. It's more noticeable in the 2.7K footage.

Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 3.58.20 pm.jpg

Here's the link to the screen capture file for examination, especially note it in the waveform in the 2.7K footage.
Looks like an exposure spike, small but noticeable seems to be more prevalent in the mids ??
Here's the link to the file:

This best describes the phenomenon, it looks like the exposure is slightly being increased and then drops back to it's original setting.
Looking closely at the waveform there is a very slight exposure increase then a drop back to the original exposure.
Can't work it out and I have jobs on tomorrow as well :eek:

Thanks Haydn both morning Jobs are in Morayfield and one in Beerwah late afternoon so they are some distance from you.
Will probably need to buy a set of filters for the C23 anyway how much are they ? :)

AU$145+delivery from me.
I have them in stock.

But I'm happy to send you a set to St if that fixes the problem.

I find the card that it comes with its great.
There are a lot of fake cards around and it's possible that yours is not up to scratch.

Definately try the factory card and see if it helps.

So is it only in the 2.7 and not in the 4k?
Its not as exaggerated in 4K but still there when I look at the waveform

Hi Haydn,
Here's another test clip, the first clip is in 2.7K second 4K and the third a reference clip to show the difference. Used a different waveform on the left to show the pulses better.
File is private, password is: C23-000
This is because the last clip cannot be shared as it was posted as a test clip only.

An update to this thread :)
I imported some footage from another H+ user and also saw the same issue! The footage was recorded in Original Colour Profile, slightly over exposed as in a normal LOG file. I also noticed the exposure spike in their footage as well! But to look at it I wouldn't have noticed it. Imported into FCPX I can also see the same spikes in their footage on the waveform monitor but it's in the sky and as it's quite bright anyway it wouldn't be noticed.
I wonder if this has been fixed in the latest firmware update for the H Plus ?
Also can anyone else supply some RAW footage shot in Original Colour profile from another C23 ??
Just trying to figure out if it's the odd case of it or if it's found in all C23's ??
