Vixia HF R600 records with waves moving through the image (flickering)

Hi everybody,


I got my Vixia R600 18 months ago and used it very little. Some time latter I travelled to a place with beautiful wide scapes and waterfalls, which I recorded. When I downloaded the recordings to my PC I saw all videos were with a kind of "wave of light" moving through it, very annoying. But I let it go. 


Today I was recording a pen drive repair and when I looked at the results in PC the "waves" were there.


After some researching, It looks like these "waves" are called flickering and that would be in low light conditions. If the problem has really this name, flickering, the videos were shooted in good light conditions.


This was my first camcorder and I read good news about it at Amazon and other web sites before purchase. I've got Canon DSLRs over the years and had no problem.


Well, what can I do? Is this a flaw in the camcorder?
