Re: Z7 Bug? Flashing Screen & Blackouts While Reviewing Most Recently Shot Photo With Zoom

Yes, you're right, it only happens in "Prioritize Viewfinder" mode, not in "Monitor Only" mode. However, I can hold the camera at arm's length from my body and it still happens 100% of the time as described in the original post. However, I have discovered that if I turn on "Focus Point" in the Playback settings (so that the red Focus Point is displayed in playback), it never happens. That makes me think it's more likely to be some kind of software bug rather than an issue with my specific camera.

Thank you for the reply.

This issue is not related to fingers or eyes hitting the sensor. It is happening on the Live View screen, not the viewfinder, and it only happens under very specific conditions as listed in the original post. I can reproduce it every time by following those steps.

My camera could be faulty, but I don't want to return it if it's a system issue.

Thank you again.

Just to confirm, try it with the viewfinder turned off
