EX3 Focus Assist-Screen Green flicker
on Jun 2, 2010 at 10:44:06 pm

Is the green screen flicker going and and out of focus assist on an EX3 normal? I've used a lot of rentals and can't remember. I'm setting up a new EX3 (my own) and was curious if this is normal or maybe a little issue with the viewfinder screen.

Hi,

Did you find a solution to this problem ?
I bought an ex-demo ex3 and have the same green flickerings.

Thanx in advance.

My original EX1 did the same thing a couple of times but rebooting the camera took care of it. My present EX3 and EX1R don't have the issue (so far). I never investigated because the few times it happened wasn't a big deal for me.

Is your EX3 doing this on a regular basis?

The Sony tech at Able Cine said it was normal. I haven't thought about it since. It has been a good camera. The only issue I have had with my EX3 was that I tried the auto flicker reduce setting when overseas to see if it would cut down on 50 hz light flicker. It didn't really help and I forgot to turn it off. Outside it made a mess of a couple of contrasty shots. Turned it off and haven't had that issue again.

The camera has it regularly (have it one week).

I going back to the store today to let sony examine the issue and update the firmware.

The firmware is 1.02 and i have been told that only sony can update from version (1.02 - 1.04)

I'll keep you posted on the outcome.



luckily I added the 2+2 year warranty to the product so it shouldn't cost me extra.

My EX3 has been sent to sony to fix the green flickerings, firmeware update (from 1.02) and the front shoe-mount (slightly loose).

My EX3 has firmware 1.10. There is only a mili-second of green flicker when switching into focus assist.
