Karen from Sony just sent me this article from Sony:

This is Karen from Sony Support. We spoke earlier regarding the shadow smearing red issue on your alpha camera. I just want to confirm if you have already tried adjusting the White Balance setting of the camera? We have an article stating this;
"The subject coloring is affected by the lighting conditions. For example, the entire image may appear blue under cloudy conditions, and light-colored subjects may gain a reddish tint under certain light sources, such as incandescent bulbs. The human eye can resolve these problems, but digital still cameras may not recognize the correct colors without adjustments. Normally, the camera makes these adjustments automatically, but if the recorded image colors appear unnatural, manually adjust the white balance."
Thank you,

Hmm.. OK...
