I agree with some others, this is not a rolling shutter issue. It seems like everything gets blamed on CMOS sensors and rolling shutter.

On your other thread where you included the frame grabs, I can see the blocky patterns and sadly, I have nothing to offer other than to say to send it to Sony. My experiences with Sony Service (US) have been good. Very attentive to my needs and issues. I would much prefer sending my gear to them rather than any dealer. I would keep in touch and make sure they understand the issue and can see the problem. You don't want it sent back with "No Problem Found".

Ya, annoys mewhen you know you have a problem and they say no problem found, the footage I have given them you can cleary see the issue, one night DJ had a strobe light and the footage was unusable as the strobe is very similar to camera flash and just destroyed the picture, and this dj couldnt stop playing his strobe, was like a new toy for him lol.

Greg, you're right. I have jumped to this conclusion many other times. Mainly because a lot of folks don't keep up on the technology. Personally, I'm sold on the CMOS sensors. I bought a PMW-350 for that reason. Like HDV, if you know the limitations of the technology you can get outstanding performance from it. One of the first things I noticed after working with my PMW-350 with 2/3' sensors for a week or so was, how much I appreciated the Z7/S270's image.

Sony contacted me through email yesterday, saying my camera should be fixed by the end of the month, they are waiting for parts to arrive, expect them on the 22/11.

The good news is they found something wrong with the unit, no idea what the parts are though, I asked them what the C.Board is, no reply yet :), maybe someone here knows.

"Your parts (HARNESS COAXIAL CABLE and MOUNTED C.BOARD TT-007 COMPL) are due to arrive 22/11, the unit has been booked in under warranty and will be fully tested before leaving us"

Anyway, hopefully these parts fix the issue, and they do actually test it before sending it back to me this time :)

Wayne, that sounds like good news. Hopefully, you will have a proper functioning Z7 back soon.
