Zebra patterning is a feature found on some prosumer and most professional video cameras to aid in correct exposure. When enabled, areas of the image over a certain threshold are filled with a striped or cross-hatch pattern. Often, two thresholds are available: 70% and 100%. The former is useful for correctly exposing skin tones, while the latter is used to ensure overall scene exposure is correct.
