Exclamation point inside a triangle error RAW files

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm new to the forum.

I have a Sony a9 and last week I was watching a YouTube video about settings and made a couple of changes although I don't remember which ones though they seemed minor.

I already had changed numerous settings from the default ones over past 6 months with no issues.  

Last week after I made the most recent setting changes, when I tried to upload the RAW files to my iMAC, every RAW file was an exclamation mark inside a triangle instead of an image for the files after I changed the settings but the RAW files that were on the card before I made the changes all uploaded correctly.  The mac 'Get Info' didn't recognize the camera or the settings and the RAW file sizes were half of normal.  The thumbnails in the iMAC's 'Photos' app looked file until they were uploaded. 

As a test, I took some new photos using another RAW card and uploaded them and the same thing happened on this same mac and another one so it seems like it is a setting in the camera and not the computers or the cards but I can't figure out what it is.  I wrote Sony and they said there is nothing that I could do in the camera to make that happen.  I'm not sure that I agree.  

I'm about the reset the camera to the factory settings, if that's even possible, but wanted to ask here if anyone has had this happen to them or might know what happened?  The jpgs all uploaded correctly.

I ended up using the Sony Image Edge Desktop program and it let me turn the exclamation point in a triangle images into TiFF files.  That makes it even more confusing for me to understand what is going on.

Thank you in advance for any help,

jmg

Hi,

 

Since the raw files are halve their normal size, it looks like you have enabled cRaw (compressed raw) and the mac is having troubles reading those. Try again after disabling.

Hi Steve,

I was shooting in RAW compressed before the problem started and during when the problem happened.  It seems that the MAC just isn't understanding something about the files.  But I don't really know. 

Thanks,

I just tried shooting RAW uncompressed and the same issue happened.

In the 'Get Info.' in the MAC is says 'No camera information as well as 'No lens information' and the file pixel size is 900 x 600 whereas normally it's 6000 x 4000.

I‘m pretty sure the Mac won‘t recognize the RAW files without additional software. Did you to open the files in the Photos app?

To answer dbmiller's question, in Sony's Image Edge app, the pixels are 3936x2624 not 6000x4000 like they are in Photos.  Do you know what that means?

To Olaf W.'s, I have been importing RAW files into Photos without any issues, up to 25 MP per RAW file, for the last year with no problems until two weeks ago.

Thanks,

Yep - It means you shot the images in APS-C mode.

Thank you dbmiller for this information.  I believe that is the problem.  Normally I have APS-C/Super 35m in 'Auto'.  I have a feeling that

I mistakenly had it on 'On' instead of what I wanted to try which was 'Off'.  After putting it back to 'Auto', my RAW files are uploading

correctly to Photos.  Thank you so much for your help!!!  And everyone else who replied to my need for help. 

I've never been on or written to a Forum before so the fact that it was helpful is so great.  

Thanks again everyone.  I now have a source for Sony information that I actually didn't know existed until my wife wondered aloud if there was a Forum for the Sony a9!

    • Your reply in no way answers OP's questions @Chrissie. You're raising all kinds of arguments against the use of 4k120p that may be totally irrelevant to OP: The maximum bitrate at 4k/120p 10 bit 4:2:2 is 280 Mbit/s or 35 MB/s (H.265 XAVC HS codec). A 160 GB card can record 4571 seconds at this bitrate, or 1h:16min. This is a much lower bitrate than 4k/60p 16 bit (600 Mbit/s), so I don't see why an external recorder couldn't handle this. Might need a firmware update though.
    • I think you'll have to learn reading the fine print, and not to believe all hearsay or marketing hype. For instance: Sony itself claims the  involves a "10% crop". (Click on the "6" footnote at the end of that heading). It's up to anyone's guess wether that is a 10 % crop at the overall pixel count, of if it's applied to both width and height of the image. In the latter case, that would amount to a 19% loss already. The same sources quotes the via HDMI at a maximum of 60f
    • Ultimately, I need to record at 4K, 120, 4:2:2.  I can't compromise on that.    I know that I need the CFexpress card to do so internally.  But the 160 Gig card is $400.  It's not cheap so I was thinking that perhaps I should just go with an external recorder like the Shogun so that I can have a harddrive, along with the monitor and XLR inputs.  Yes, this is $1200 but that's why I'm looking for advice.  Im confused as to the Shogun's recording.  It's listed at 4K, 60, 4:2:2, but someon
    • Yup!  Couldn't agree more. In my line of work we go by measure twice cut once ... just repeat that mentally 5 times before actual execution, heh Though all that eye exercise didn't help with the NFC issue -> still somewhat flaky Gonna keep trying with the 6300 and 100 to see what trick gets that to actually work?
    • Wow this is the response I got from Sony. Apparently the cards are being recalled because of this issue. This is pretty big news: I have checked that some of the Sony Tough card will not work with the Sony ILCE7SM3 camera and we will process the replacement for the SD card. Yes. Definitely the replacement cards will work with your latest camera and to the older model as well.
