    That‘s normal in my opinion - the Finder does not show previews for raw files, it‘s not Sony specific.

    Here's a picture of the Moon that I took about an hour ago from my driveway (the Moon is so bright that streetlights don't cause any significant problem). It was taken with my Sony A7iii Camera and the Canon FD-series 500mm/f8 catadioptric mirror lens using a purely mechanical lens adapter.

    Exactly, it might be so...
    Thank you all for replying, I really wouldn't have thought of the formating issue here.

    Hi!
    I never mentioned that the SD cards "in trouble" are MicroSD cards with 64GB Sandisk ExtremePlus V30 XC 1 class3 A1, and I used the Slot1 in the A7III 
    I used Disk Utility to format to ExFat, put the card in the camera and formated, put it to record and the files ended up 4,19GB each again. Please see Pic-1 where it shows a screenshot from Finder. Then I checked the card with Disk Utility and it showed "No NAME" and that it was MS-DOS.. See the Pic-2 attached.
    My conclusion is that the camera formated the card to MS-DOS for some reason thus chopping files into 4,19GB each.
    I took the Micro SD out again and formated it to ExFat in Disk Utility, put it back in the camera. It didn't ask to format the card, only let the camera fix the Database, it took 5-6 seconds. Then I recorded a long video resulting in one big MOV file.
    When I use the full sized Sandisk SD Extreme Pro 64GB 170Mb/s XC 1 V30 card, everything is fine. Formated in Disk Utility, the put in camera, formated, and it's not chopping the files at all, see the Pic-3 attached.
    The crazy thing is that I have two of these MicroSD cards, completely identical, bought on same occasion . One card is being formated the right way in camera (to exFat) and the other one into MS-DOS. Tested this 3-4 times, always the same card.
    Now I know (I marked the card) which shouldn't be formated in the camera and I won't have troubles any more, but it's maybe good to know for others, it's either the card or inconsistent behaviour of the Sony A7III formating sequence. Is it firmware issue or what, I wouldn't know.
    Thanks everybody!

    Olaf W. reacted to Valerio in Alpha 7 III - Megapixel crop mode   
    hello sorry! i'm so used to read english that in my mind i was reading this forum in my own language 😮
    anyway:
    hello i got a question about the APS-C super35mm" function
    In video mode some functions cannot be used, so i usually use photo mode even to register videos, in S dial mode, so the camera can adjust all parameters by herself mantaining the shutter speed rule 25p 1/50 - 100p 1/200, etc. Do you think there is some problem using photo mode to shot videos??
    However, if I use the crop function, the megapixels displayed on the screen decrease (rightly because you cut out a piece of sensor)
    My question is: if I start recording a video in crops mode selected, does this loss of quality in terms of Megapixels persist and will I therefore have less defined images? or does it only apply to photos?

    Thanks for your attention, greetings

    Maybe it was another card which was pre-formatted FAT32. I'm looking forward to your results.

    Files on FAT formatted drives (as SD-Cards) are limited to 4GB. So it's normal that the camera chops the recordings.
