4:3 marks on viewfinder

On the Z1E the 4:3 marks (white vertical lines) should be in the place for Image safe limit (90%) and are in the Image limit.
So when we shoot, and plan to crop the image, it's a bit difficult to know if something are inside image or not (on the limits).

As far as I know it's not possible to change their position.

Is there any kind of "bios" update to solve this, from Sony?

I dint know that

I didnt know that. I will test it to see. What i would say though is it is a pain that you cant select BLACK as the edge of 4:3 instead of transparent colour that is there now. It can be distracting sometimes to see stuff off frame moving around and it makes you think differently about how you frame 4:3 and is a distraction. I wish it were just black. I feel tempted to tape it off sometimes but done want to risk damaging the screen peeling the tape off later.
