    I had the same problem and puzzled over it for ages and looked to this forum, but no luck. As it was a new camera with a working internal mike, I figured the problem had to be the jacks. After some trial and error I got it working. The jack going into the mic socket must be a two-pole. Also if using an extension chord it must have a two pole socket and jack too. If you are using a wireless microphone check that it is a two - pole jack that the transmitter you use has. Hope it works out for you , drove me crazy for a while. FYI the jack in the middle is the two-pole the other will simply not work I was using three and four pole before.

    Here's another way of editing, just changing Exposure Brightness and Shadow

    I cropped the images a little. The images are very under-exposed, so there is little room for improvement. Spot metering was used with no Exposure Compensation on the two images below I adjust the Highlights all the way down to -100 to get the colors to begin to show. I can't see from EXIF if DRO was used, it does affect the RAW files and gives more latitude to widely varying lighting conditions This is from first image screen shot from CaptureOne settings: This screenshot shows CaptureOne settings for the following image. I had to adjust color on the basketball as the highlights were blown out. I am certain that others could probably edit these much better but this should give you a starting point My recommendation when taking shots like this is : 1. Turn on DRO, as mentioned above it DOES affect RAW files and gives more latitude on color correction etc. 2. Use AEL , focus on an area that is mid-lighting and toggle AEL this may help to give a median baseline for lighting, then recompose, focus and take the shot.

    It might work but you'll loose infinity focus. Some even use an extension tube to stack two 2× TC's.

    Sony a7s3 AF problem

    You're a lot calmer than I'd be after shelling out $3500 for a camera with issues hoping some future phantom firmware update might correct. My 7Sii developed a group of purple pixels 3 weeks after buying the camera but only when rolling 4K. I exchanged it in spite of the dealer saying it's hardly noticeable if you don't know where to look. A camera this new with issues will surely present with other ones outside of the return or warranty period. I'd punt it back to Pittsburgh immediately for an exchange.

    16-35mm f2.8 Lens Dropped

    Spot on. I made a similar observation about the lens release button location on my a7rIII after nearly dropping the 16-35 last year. Clearly I did not pay enough attention! For many years I used Nikons and now fully appreciate the simple logic of locating the lens release on the opposite side from the hand grip. I love my 24-105 as well.
