Re: Pink dots on the sensor

I am now talking with the vendor about returning the camera to Sony, will let you know how it turns out. At least I have my VG30 to fall back to in the meantime. Have nw idea how I can save the footage shot on the last job I did. You couldn't see the dots on the LCD so didn't notice until afterwards. My goodness, how we put our welfare in the hands of technology.

Re: Pink dots on the sensor

James, First I wan't to say I am truly sorry your camera is damaged. Second, thank you for sharing because this is now one of the most important threads here! I would never shine a laser onto any sensor the way the myth-buster guy does it. On the other hand I would not have been concerned at all to be shooting around those low power DJ lights in the clip you had up. This thread will cause me to be more concerned about protecting my camera. Good luck, we are all waiting to see what happens.

Steve

Hey James, can I use the image on my blog? Thought it would be worth to share.

Can we wait until the issue has been settled with Sony?

Re: Pink dots on the sensor

Sony were no help whatsoever. Sony Prime Support, more like Sony Crime Support. I have a registered Sony repair centre currently looking at the camera.

Re: Pink dots on the sensor

This is quite a concern considering most of us will be shooting in those conditions at some point.

Why haven't Sony prime support helped? what was the reason? And is it still being fixed free of charge or what?
