EX1 - Green flash
on Jan 10, 2008 at 2:12:46 pm

Hello there,

When I hit "Expanded Focus" on my brand new EX1, it does some green flashes for half a second or so. It especially does this in 25p and 30p modes. Do you all have the same, or is it just me?

In other modes there is a very short flash, not too noticeable.
It also does it when switching modes (720/1080 i/p ...), but there it doesn't bother me.

Just thought it looked a little weird. I have never seen it on a Z1 before...

Same thing happens with mine as well. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Using expanded focus during recording has no effect on recorded material. either. The flashes during a recording format change is probably a normal thing with this camera. You'll notice that a similar thing also happens when you power up the camera.
