Pixel mapping checks and optimizes the camera image sensor. If you notice unexpected bright spots appearing in pictures taken with the camera, perform pixel mapping as described below.

  • Pixel mapping is available only when a Z mount lens or an optional FTZ mount adapter is attached.

  • To prevent unexpected loss of power, use a fully-charged battery or an optional charging AC adapter or AC adapter and power connector.

  1. Select [Pixel mapping] in the setup menu.

    Turn the camera on, press the G button, and select [Pixel mapping] in the setup menu.

  2. Select [Start].

    Pixel mapping will start. A message is displayed while the operation is in progress.

  3. Turn the camera off when pixel mapping is complete.

  • Do not attempt to operate the camera while pixel mapping is in progress. Do not turn the camera off or remove or disconnect the power source.
