  1. There's also a bug/feature if anti-flicker mode is on, then shot result result preview doesn't work properly.
  2. It does look a little off. What happens if you go to a medium spot instead of small?
  3. Have you buy any chance, taken any pictures of the sun, eclipse, or at a show with lasers?
  4. In AF-S mode (Not AF-C), Sony cameras focus in phase detect mode to get "in the ballpark", but then switch to contrast detect mode for final confirmation. That mode will pulse back in forth to fine to do that, and that may be what you are seeing. If however, you are in AF-C mode, then there is no switch over to contrast detect unless you are using narrow apertures (Could be f/11 or higher, depending on camera and firmware). So if you are using AF-C and shooting at an aperture of f/8 or wider (smaller #), then the pulsing must be caused by something else.
  5. The diffuser panel is likely not completely closed. If the flash thinks the panel is out, it automatically goes to the wide setting.
  6. Sounds like an A7Rx shooting in APS-C mode.
  7. Menu AF4 (Camera 1, page 8/14 on my A7R3) - Phase Detect. Area - Switch it to off.

  9. My guess is the lens correction being applied to correct vignetting. It's not always perfect and when you push the results, it shows up. Try turning off lens corrections and see if that changes your result.
  10. Check which Picture Profile you are using for video. Certain profiles change the minimum ISO.
  11. Can't use a flash. Slow sensor readout may cause rolling shutter type distortions. High shutter speeds may cause bokeh issue (Same as EFCS) Probably many more.
  12. Do you have Remote Control enabled? The camera will not sleep if it is waiting for a remote trigger.
  13. To me, it doesn't look like sensor spots, it looks more like sensor damage. Have you recent shot pictures directly into the sun, or at a show where lasers were being used?
  14. Check to see if you haven't accidentally turned on the Portrait Creative Style - That style takes the regular image, then applies softening to the image to get a softer skin.
  15. From the help guide: How to Use Using shooting functions Adjusting the focus AF Illuminator (still image) The AF illuminator supplies fill light to focus more easily on a subject in dark surroundings. The red AF illuminator allows the product to focus easily when the shutter button is pressed halfway, until the focus is locked. 1. MENU → (Camera Settings) → [ AF Illuminator] → desired setting. Menu item details Auto (default setting): Uses the AF illuminator. Off: Does not use the AF illuminator.
