  1. Hi everybody, I've recently done a switch from Nikon to Sony and even if I'm happy for the most part, it seems like the most simple things to do ever are getting crazy complicated with Sony oO Such as importing files on your laptop for example... For instance, I'm a hybrid shooter. I've done photography for 10 years and brought the A7III to get more into video. After testing different file management settings, I decided to save my pictures on the Card 2 and the footages on Card 1. This allow me to get the best performance of the SD XC II and bigger storage for videos, and not damage my expensive SD XC II with simple pictures. Another reason why I separate videos and pictures is because I noticed that everytime I'm formating the card, the footages naming system restart from number 1... I'm filming mostly documentaries and working on different projects in the same time, and I can never plan how many footages I'll get in a day so I'm trying to empty my cards every night to get it ready for next day. So my editing software (and myself) get crazy with 200 files named C0001.MP4... Also the Memory settings "M1, M2, M3, M4" are actually stored on the SD card and I'd like to keep them 🙄 I've found a walkaround to this problem by NOT formating the cards and just manually deleting the files after the copy. But this created another problem... When deleting the files from the laptop and putting back the SD card in the camera, the Playback window still count the deleted files but consider them as "Unable to Display", which is normal because they are deleted... Off course I could delete it from the camera directly, but the deleting menu is so counter intuitive and take so much time, especially if I'm not able to export for few days, then the only way is deleting date by date, on both cards... And half of the time I got an error message... 😞 "Writing to the memory card was not completed correctly. Recover data ?" (if they've been deleted already from laptop) Soooo after all this extensive message, I would like to know how, you guys, manage to do something as SIMPLE as Importing your files, from a Sony camera 😅 Thank you 🙏😊
  2. The a7r iii (and other a7 cameras) have received a lot of criticism regarding their menu systems. I suppose the criticism should be expected as more features are added to the a7 cameras and the menus become increasingly complex. I really believe that the solution is for Sony to create a way for the end user to customize the camera menu for his/her own needs. If you agree, may I suggest that you chime in to encourage Sony to create something that allows menu customization, and spread the word to other photographers. Maybe as a community, we can get Sony's attention and inspire them to action. Here is a detailed description of an idea to solve the menu problem. https://community.sony.com/t5/Join-the-Inspiration/Sony-a7r-iii-camera-menu-idea/idi-p/655678
  3. I just received my Sony A 7RIII and am very excited. But the user manual is lame. Cannot find where to set electronic level, which port to use for a remote shuttewr release and instructions on use of exposure lock button. YouTube videos have helped but need advice on specifics listed. Thank you
  4. Every time one takes a photograph, the picture is displayed on the monitor for about 5 seconds. Is there a way to limit this time to, say, three seconds? In the famously user-friendly menu I could not find an option to set the display time. What did I overlook? Kind regards, Freddy.
  5. Camera A7rII Metabones Adaptor MIV Canon Lenses Sony Camera Firmware V2 JJC TM Multi-Function Timer Remote Outdoor temperature 34 degrees My camera is a little over a month old. I am a relatively new Sony user. On my last camera shoot, I was taking photos just fine and then the camera went from working to displaying "Camera Error" and either turn camera off and on again or the word restart. Can't remember exactly which. I had to do this twice before the camera started working again. About 1/2 hour later, my menus and buttons no longer worked. I would press the function menu, no display; same with the big control wheel to access ISO and the menu button itself no longer worked. I turned the camera off and waited a few seconds and then back on, which seem to restore the menu and button functions. About 2 weeks ago, the camera seemed to be "stuck" in Auto ISO mode and I was unable to disable that function and finally had to reset camera settings. Any clues - should I take the camera back?
