"I actually just had another camera scare that's never happened before. After reviewing a clip with Record Review my screen turned green (like it does for a brief half second when switching formats) and froze there."


This has happened on one of my EX's after the very first firmware upgrade, and still does, even after two more firmaware upgrades.

I've since learnt that if I just flip out the LCD screen and then put it away again the camera returns to normal, no need to reboot when you're in a hurry.

When Sony updated my EX1 to 1.11 I also had some odd behavior which included issues playing back clips. I had Sony redo the upgrade and it fixed the behavior.

BTW this is why I'm still concerned that people may later find "hidden" issues even though the upgrade to 1.20 seems fine.
