SONY A900 AND ASPECT RATIO LOCKED (PROBLEM)
« on: January 08, 2010, 03:08:41 PM »
Hi i own a sony a900 and i just noticed that the aspect ratio is locked without giving me the option to change that,
You know i was playing with the camera while i was reading the manual so something went wrong since i was changing a lot of settings
The thing is that i can not unlock the 3:2 option witch is giving me the L: 24M WITH  6048x4032 i mean it is locked in the 3:2 option but it gives me as a L: option the 11M :!!!! witch is out of the blue for this cam.
Does anyone know what happened?what i did wrong maybe?and how i can change that?
Oh btw i made a reset to the cam but it still stays to the locked 3:2 and with the size at L: 11M :!!!!
Thanks:! manos@krystalis.gr

Go to menu,  wrench #4 and see if APS-c size is turned on. If so turn it off.

well,i just found something usefull
i am using the lens sal-18250
well when i take out the lens from the camera and trying to open the camera without lens IT FINALLY gives me the 24m choice for the image size e.t.c
So is that possible for the lens although it is a sony lens to not cooperating properly with the camera???
It is complicated i know:)

What lens do you have on? Is it a FF lens?

The 18-250 is a APS-C lens so the camera automatically goes into crop mode. You need to get a lens made for FF.

You might want to look at this thread http://www.dynaxdigital.com/index.php/topic,12905.0.html and the link in it's first post. Just food for thought.
