Sony a7s3 AF problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Since I bought new sony a7s3 Im having issiue with AF. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeopdCOqgQo

No matter what settings I have, I can set it to speed 1 and sensitivity 1 and still do the same. On the larger distance its works fine, but in close ups, its just jumping instantly. Also when I do some movement to the object it just go blur, jump focus, blur jump focus. I cant find any other topic about it and I cant beleave, nobody wouldnt notice this. Might be just bad piece idk.

Yes I can confirm now.

Tamron 28-75 same problem on 50mm

 

But on 28mm it works fine

 

Another issues I found are during 1 day shooting, 5 times my af touch display function stoped working. Just froze. I had to turn on and off camera and worked fine after. 

And that is not a big problem, but sometimes % on battery life are just gone and also you have to restart camera to get it back.

And this one i need to investigate more, cuz I think it is SD card problem. I have v30 and should be fine on 4k50, but sometimes I get some wierd fps drops and video is choppy.

UPDATE

My friend just got his own a7s3 and we tested it out and everythig worked fine on his. So bad copy for me 😕 firmware update might help to fix this in future.

As you have compared to another camera which does not misbehave, it looks like a fault. I think you should take it up with the supplier. Vague hopes that something might put it right in the future might remain just that.

You're a lot calmer than I'd be after shelling out $3500 for a camera with issues hoping some future phantom firmware update might correct.

My 7Sii developed a group of purple pixels 3 weeks after buying the camera but only when rolling 4K. I exchanged it in spite of the dealer saying it's hardly noticeable if you don't know where to look. A camera this new with issues will surely present with other ones outside of the return or warranty period. I'd punt it back to Pittsburgh immediately for an exchange.

Well I am colm since I bought it officialy in the shop so I will get repair, or change. Nothing to worry about :D But since I was almost first in our country to own this camera, I know they will not be able to change it anyway since they dont have more :D and we are under lockdown right now anyway. So nothing to do. I still have my old a73 so I can work no problemo.
