told sony support an issue with a99/nex vg900:

its about the video being too soft / low res ,

probably because of codec compression issue or downsampling issue, on the hdmi out the video is great,

so this is urgent issue to fix on the next a99 firmware update

and sent sony support to here:


this is what sony replied:

"Thank you for contacting Sony Support.
I understand that you want a firmware update to be released for the SLT-A99V camera.
I have read your post on the Sony forums, and rest assured that everything is noted and will be forwarded to the right department. It is appreciated you have taken the time to share your comments with us. It is important to receive feedback so we may consider the needs of our customers in the future.
Thank you for choosing Sony."

maybe they will check this, or release the fw update faster,

maybe worth a shot

Ok, now they know.

The good point is that the post is open there on the Sony forum itself, so they don't try to deny nor muzzled people (or something) about it.

We can also consider, at this time, that the suggestion of SteveNunez to fix this problem (to meticulous and pro-grade videographer) is particularly clever. Fortunately, most of them don't noticed this kind of problems 'till now (they said).
