5D Mark IV dark area over 1/2 the image

[ Edited ]

5A3A0008.JPGJust bought 5D Mark IV. Took a few test shots and there is a dark area on 3 of the 5 images. Any idea what would cause this?

 

Any ideas??

Take a regular photo, not a video monitor or television screen.

Agree with the above comment. You're shutter speed is catching the screen refresh.

These are the only shots you have taken with a brand new 5D Mk IV?  C'mon !  Really?  Smiley Frustrated

And you determined it is faulty?

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
