Hey guys, having an issue with my camera. The camera loads to a black screen and and it very slow before the viewfinder shows anything. Sometimes 5 seconds or more. Its not always though. Sometimes its boom opened other times it lags. Anyone else see this or have a fix?


Thanks

I have exactly the same problem, though my screen is black for nearly 30 seconds. It could be coincidence but I only noticed the delay after switching to a 64gb SD - not that it should make a difference since the camera records to internal memory. Confused and frustrated

even after 108 (2nd edition) and a several tries with different microSD cards, my wife's Z1C still has issues with the camera. The only thing that fixes it for a while is clearing the cache for the Camera app.

If its not hanging, black screening, or rebooting - I effing give up. Can Sony ever get it right??

I'm glad 2nd edition 108 fixed your Z1C. Wish it fixed ours....

Hello guys, I have the same problem on a Z3. At first I had a black spot on the camera, and then changed it. The new one worked fine, until it didn't and gave me a black screen. Now both cameras won't work. I hope it's the camera and the motherboard ...
