  1. I suspect your only option is to try some recovery software to see if the images can be restored.
  2. The lines look a little wavy, did you recently wet-clean your sensor?
  3. I would suggest the 1.4 teleconverter over the 2.0 There have been a few questionable reviews on the 2.0. I have the 1.4 with the 70-200 f2.8 and 200-600 and am very happy with the results.. You only need 2 z-batteries, the battery grip runs fine with just one and its unlikely you will drain a battery in one day unless taking a lot of video.
  4. Check for corrosion/dirt on the battery contacts in the camera. It sounds like it is losing contact with the battery. Thats the inly thing I can suggest
  5. PocketWizard III, they are not cheap and you need two of them Effective range is staggering. I’ve used these for literally thousands of shots (sports)... You’ll need a Sony cable too
  6. Seeing the packages side by side, the differences are obvious. But if you only had one to look at it would appear genuine. E-bay can have some good deals but they need to get rid of all the fake stuff, though I’ve seen people order from Amazon and end up with fakes too.
  7. Have you followed the information here, including the Hint section? https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1930/v1/en/contents/TP0002727486.html?search=Interval
  8. Someone had a similar issue with 200-600 when they had a UV filter on the lens. Sony recommended not to use such a filter when he contacted them. I use a plain glass filter (to protect the lens).
  9. What movie format are you using... the format and file size dictates the maximum recording time: See below https://helpguide.sony.net/dc/1910/v1/en/contents/TP0002870058.html?search=Recording time Also, I am not sure how video recording is affected of there afe blocks of old data on the card. The camera may be able to skip over those sectors and continue recording on the next available block of memory or it may stop. Maybe try formatting the card first and then try recording. If the same thing happens then you may have a bad/fake card... it does happen.
  10. I think the default is on and can changed by accessing menu when you are in your preferred mode (2) https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/2010/v1/en/contents/TP0003220952.html
  11. I think Its just vignetting, greater depth of field makes it more pronounced.
  12. Altitude should be a non-issue, I’ve used my a9 at 9000 feet (around 2700 meters) with no issue. The only potential issue is temperature. Check the temp ranges for your camera in the online help guide. Batteries won’t last long in low temps so bring spares and try to keep them warm.
  13. I seem to recall I get the Slot 1 error the very first time I use a brand new card on my a9... its been a while though
  14. Colors can only go as far as recorded. With spot metering being used it will try to balance the exposure in the center of the frame which is where the light is. Try mounting the camera on a tripod, and take a picture with bracketing turned on for EACH of the various metering modes, save images as RAW + JPG Then do the same with DRO turned on, and go through them all to see which JPG is closer to reality. Then use a good photo editor to fine-tune the RAW version of that image. On the last example I did not adjust the saturation, so there may be some more color that could be broug
  15. Here's another way of editing, just changing Exposure Brightness and Shadow
  16. 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 basketb
  17. The top one is much warmer, so the White Balance setting is different on the two images. Have you tried changing the WB in post-processing to see if you can find a setting that gets you close to the phone camera?
  18. Not sure, i don’t use bracketing much. I would have thought the camera should be able to do this sort of shot without too much post-processing.
  19. I imagine these lights are fluorescent, but that would only cause a problem if using the electronic shutter. Maybe a slower shutter speed to eliminate the flicker of the lights ? i’m a little stumped to be honest
  20. What metering mode were you using, if using the whole screen then it might over expose to pick up the building, so it washes out the sign. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1930/v1/en/contents/TP0002720658.html?search=Highlight Did you try using the Highlight mode ? Did you have HDR on or off?
