Sony fixes a7 lll 'blinking pixels' issue with firmware 1.01 update

DPReview.com - Latest News - Wed, 04/18/2018 - 6:24pm

Sony has released the first firmware update for the Sony a7 III—version 1.01—and it was specifically released to solve a "blinking pixel" issue that showed up when recording video footage while using certain settings.

The flickering pixels would appear along the base of footage "during XAVC S 4K (PAL 25p) recording (depending on the combination of camera settings)." Additionally, the update resolves a problem that could occasionally make the rear touch screen stop working, and Sony says the camera’s system should run more smoothly with the new firmware as well.

For more information and to download V1.01 for yourself, visit this support page on the Sony website.
