  1. HDMI cable should allow you to see the screen and change the menu to switch it back to Viewfinder. This issue has cropped up for others too.
  2. I'm not a fan of crop-mode, I've found that I prefer to crop the image after I've taken it, as it gives more flexibility if I want to change the framing of the subject. I've used a 1.4TC with the lens, you lose even more light with the TC so ensure that you have good lighting to offset the tighter aperture and you should get good results. Get a tripod, or at least a mono-pod to help keep it steady.
  3. Your ISO is very high, are you taking pictures in the middle of the night?
  4. I like how the shadow cuts right across the eyes.
  5. Explanation of xml or sidecar files is here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidecar_file They are small enough that you should probably copy them over in case some video editing software needs them later. I’m guessing that the THBNL files are thumbnail images of your photos, not sure what to do with them. I usually import photos using CaptureOne and I don’t shoot video so can’t provide any more details on that.
  6. Make sure that you have all the latest firmware for your camera. Do you have a UV filter on the lens ? There was an issue that someone had with a UV filters that caused distortion on this lens, wondering if this could be an issue with certain lighting conditions and if that distortion affects how it focuses.
  7. Record movies in a High frame rate and play them back at a slower rate. Ie. record at 60fps and play back at 30fps will appear half speed. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1450/v1/en/contents/TP0000301880.html?search=Frame rate
  8. Agreed, distance is the killer, taking photos of motorbikes heading into a wide corner, they were impossible to follow as they got closer. I could not twist fast enough to keep them in the frame for the last 1-2 seconds.
  9. Good tip. That should work well with motorbikes too, I’ll have to give that a try the next time I am at the race track.
  10. At a typical sporting event I my end up with 1-2k photos. Typically I just upload all of them to a Mac Mini, while I clean my gear. Then preview with CaptureOne to sort through them and pick the top ones. The only delay is the process is the copying of the data from SD card to the computer, and I don’t generally just sit there and watch it.
  11. Suggest you contact Sony Support www.sony.com and select Support what operating system are you using and what version ?
