I was out with my new Z7 yesterday and using the touch screen autofocus, and most of the subjects were highlighted in red on the monitor. Why please explain ? Damian

Possibly "focus peakig"? All items in focus have a colour. Might I suggest you read the manual to find out for certain.

Either that or it indicates areas that are over-exposed (blown details) - normally red, and for under-exposed the colour is often blue.

The pictures came out perfect I couldn't any blown bits. I had the monitor on for about an hour !. While I looking in the monitor a dog crossed in front of the camera and there was red highlights on its legs ! Strange !

As you seem not to want to read the manual I have searched the Internetfor you. This video explains focus peaking for you and demonstrates the red colour.

I think I have it solved, the red highlights seem to appear when the focus is perfect

Normally the red lines which are a focusing aid only appear when you set the camera to manual focus.

Features like that will appear just when you are taking an important shot and are why you should RTFM Tongue
