Possible Failure of Cameras Using Certain Sony Sensors
Today, a number of camera companies have announced product “advisories” due to discovered defects in their cameras. If these defects posed safety hazards, they would be called “recalls” but since they are more of a nuisance, they are called “advisories” so that the companies do not assume liability. I make this point not because I’m annoyed at the companies (although I am) but to explain the difference between a “recall” and a “product advisory.”
In any case, apparently, a few batches of Sony manufactured sensors are exhibiting problems which result in a distorted image, or a black image.
