  1. I think I found the answer for those who might be facing the same "issue"! Apparently there is a new version of the A7RIII out with product name ILCE-7RM3A vs. the older ILCE-7RM3 (note the A vs. no A at the end). I see the ILCE-7RM3A product code under my camera - I recently bought it. I never knew about this and kept landing on the ILCE-7RM3 firmware download page, little did I know there is a separate firmware download page for ILCE-7RM3A, but his page does not have any new firmware currently. Perhaps ILCE-7RM3A already has all updates from the previous ILCE-7RM3 camera firmware?? This is quite interesting. Apparently Sony made some minor improvements in ILCE-7RM3A over the older version, most notably a higher res back LCD screen and the Sony label removed at the bottom of the back screen. ILCE-7RM3A firmware download page: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-7-series/ilce-7rm3a/downloads ILCE-7RM3 firmware download page: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-7-series/ilce-7rm3/downloads The same seems to apply to the A7RIV too. An interesting read on the topic:https://www.dpreview.com/news/8756997638/sony-quietly-updates-the-a7r-iii-a7r-iv-with-improved-lcd-displays
  2. I really love this camera but I am currently at my wit's end with this firmware update - I am trying to do a simple update to the latest firmware but despite the fact that my camera otherwise connects perfectly to my PC (remote shooting, Windows showing the camera folder etc. etc.), the update software refuses to find the camera. I have tried the following: Ensured that I'm using the USB-C cable that came with the camera Made sure that the camera is in mass storage mode Restarted my PC Restarted the camera and took the battery out for a while Followed the sequence described on the firmware update page to the tee Tried it on a different laptop running Windows 7 with exactly the same result Tried with and without a lens attached Made sure that the cable is connected directly to the PC - that it's not going through a USB hub Closed all applications, disabled firewall When I plug the camera in via the usb c cable, Windows reacts by showing a new device is connected, and the camera also shows that it is successfully connected via usb, then why does the software update application fail to find the camera? I had no issues with Imaging Edge connecting with the camera either. I also had no issue updating the A7SIII either. I'm running an up to date Windows 10 that surpasses all requirements listed on the firmware update page and the camera is currently on v1.0.0 (the lowest/oldest version I think). I've heard some say that one has to update from V1.x to V2.x, then only to V3.x, but I can not find any versions under V3 either, does anyone have a link for V2? Has anyone encountered this before or has any advice for what I can try next? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi erfahn, The A7Siii is indeed the low light king. Which gamma profile did you use? If slog3, one really needs to ETTR. I usually set zebras at 92 and always make sure I see zebras in the brightest areas on slog3 when I don’t have a grey card with great results. Then bring exposure down in post
  4. Just an update to this, I have updated to firmware 1.02, but I get still get the 2nd base ISO at 10000. It seems that I have the only A7Siii in the world that does this??
  5. Hi guys, I have found this weird difference between what I see in my A7SIII and what I've heard online and on YT, in that my second base ISO seems to be 10000 ISO and not 12800 for Slog 3. I found this out by increasing the ISO in low light to reach that magical 12800 where the noise clears up brilliantly, except mine is one ISO stop earlier from what everyone else seems to be getting. Has anyone heard of this before? I am not sure if I should be concerned or not as everything else in the camera otherwise works perfectly however, this is bugging me a little. Another question is, does this mean that my first base ISO is also one ISO lower than the base 640 for Slog3? I have noticed the same thing for pretty much every other gamma as well, also tried switching PAL to NTSC with the same result. I'm currently running firmware 1.01.
