I have an issue with the EXPOSURE CONTROL (false color) assigned to the EXP-Button on the EVF. When I try to toggle the function on and off, the camera only switches the false color image between the viewfinder or the built in monitor on the EVF. So I can actually not turn it completely off. 

 

Idk if I am just stupid and couldn't figure it out, I tried to turn all user-buttons off and re-assign them, and re-assign the EXP-button to Zebra and rebooting the camera.. Nothing worked.

 

Has anyone had this problem and know how to solve it? I'm gonna ask the rental house to re-install the software tomorrow morning though. But I'm worried that its not gonna work, bc they have the latest update installed..   

 

Would be wonderful to hear your thoughts about this!!

Strange, haven't seen that yet. If you're on a job right now, I'd call the rental house right away and see if one of their techs can talk you though the problem.

Hey Jonas,

 

I'm sure you've solved this but I figured I'd chime in.

 

I just bought a Mini and had the exact same problem. I've shot with Mini's before and had never seen this so I was completely perplexed. I contacted a friend who's a Mini owner and he said that the same thing happened to him once, but then it "went away". He suggested updating the SUP or trying a reset. The camera came with SUP 3.1 so I updated to SUP 4 and it has been fine since.

 

So not sure what was going on exactly but seems like a common bug.
