NEWS: Sony Fixes File Loss Bug on a7R III and a7 III
Sony has announced a fix to an earlier file loss bug that impacted the a7R III and a7 III. This bug could cause the camera to stop functioning while writing data to a previously used card, resulting in the corruption of that image, and preventing the camera from playing back any images. Additionally, the new firmware addresses problems with a third party memory card failing to be recognised by the camera.
This bug was previously covered in the “Sony Warns of File Loss Bug on a7R III and a7 III” article, where a number of comments mentioned experiencing the issue. Fortunately, the bug seems to be relatively limited in scope, as users would only lose 1 image, or at worst, the burst of images, while the rest of the images on the card could be recovered.
