Hey Matt!

Did you get a chance to use the camera a bit more yet? Because I’m running into a major problem for timelapsers. The shadow areas in RAW stills have noticeable colour flickering due to highly varying noise colour. This happens in LR and C1, and with all settings on manual. An example:

Here’s a thread with more details:
Here’s a thread about the same issue on the A7s II:
Here’s a thread on the A6300, same issue again:

If there’s no fix, this renders the A7s III unusable for low light timelapse, and possibly the entire Alpha series.

Hey Tomi, did you find any other details on this issue? Btw, sent you a message on instagram also.

Hey Nic! Sorry, I don’t use Instagram much, so missed your msg. The reply I got from Sony after a few weeks was just “yeah, the sensor does this. Try lowering ISO or shutter speed”. Which is not a great reply regarding the “low light king” at ISO12800 and 6400 with 1-2sec shutters.

In other words, it’s not fixable.

All the details I know are in the first Dpreview link I posted. I sent the camera back for a refund.
