can't change Aperture from camera

Recommended Posts

I have a sony a7rIII and a 1.4 Gmaster 85 lens. Things were fine, then I bought a 24-105 lens, played with it for several months, then I put the Gmaster back on and now I can't change the aperture in manual mode. If I put it in A priority it seems to be ok. But I rarely use that. Has any one seen this before. 'can't figure it out.

I think you have forgotten that the aperture is controlled by the aperture ring on the lens!  You can select the red A on the aperture ring and the lens will then allow you to control aperture by the camera if you prefer.

      Hi, I'm facing a problem.

      I want to control the A7RIII by using the USB multiport cable and get the live image of the viewfinder over HDMI.
      We use the A7RIII on a drone to take aerial pictures and movies.
      We have to use the USB multiport (USB PC Remote) in order to take pictures and to start/stop video in Manual photo mode. 
      This will not work by using WIFI.
      This works perfect as long we're not plugging in the HDMI cable into the camera.
      When we use the USB multiport in combination with HDMI, the HDMI feed goes to black when we start recording.
      Taking pictures works like it should be.
      I think I've tried everything to solve this problem, but nothing seems to work.
      Somebody with the same problems?
      Somebody with a solution?
      +10.000 karma points for the person who can help me out!

      Ive spent the last 3 our on forums and YouTube trying to change my recording format on the camera so I can easily use Premier to edit. But like I said I can’t figure out how to change the file format for the SD cards to stream lone the process.

      Using the lens on a A7riii body and aperture won’t adjust (just reads F—) and lens won’t focus.  I receive an error message indicating lens is either not attached correctly (it is) or not compatible (it’s a Sony lens).  My other lenses (70-200 and 50 mm prime) work perfectly.  Any advice?  Thanks in advance for your time.

      Hey everyone! I got an opportunity to shoot with the new Profoto B10's a few weeks ago and put it through its paces for a portrait shoot. Here's the BTS video and results.

      This error has started to affect my Sony a 7R3. I began to use UHS II Lexar 128 GB professional 1000 X cards and suddenly began to experience slot I errors. After insertion, formatting with camera, and several image captures, The camera freezes with an error message that it cannot recognize the card in slot 1 and it should be reinserted. After several re-insertion attempts and turning the camera on and off,  the behavior is not improved. The camera remains locked out  and slot 1 remains unreadable The error message ties up the camera rear screen display and menu system such that there is no option to format the card and try again.
      These errors also occurred with UHS II Sony cards and with UHS II Lexar 64 GB cards and with UHS I SanDisk Extreme Pro cards. The error occurred at random times and would totally tie up my camera on a photo shoot. Fortunately I was able to save a JPEG version onto slot II . There is been no malfunction on the slot II cards. The camera no longer recognizes when a UHS I card such as the SanDisk Extreme Pro  is inserted in slot 1. It does recognize on occasion the insertion of a UHS II card.
      The occurrence of this error is completely unrelated to any formatting of the card as I have both been able to insert UHS II cards and correctly format them in camera, and introduced cards formatted by another camera. However, UHS I cards are not recognized even if formatted correctly on an SD foundation formatting program equipped Windows computer.
      After the error occurs, the image information is not lost on the card but can be retrieved by a simple card reader plugged into a laptop.
      The error is very frustrating and I suspect may represent an error in the camera firmware. On visual inspection of the slot, there is no abnormality of the Pins, retaining clip, or other configuration items. There is no dirt, foreign body, or any other irregularity of the cards.
      Have you found a solution to this issue ? any Ideas ? It's random occurrence occurs at the worst possible times and cannot simply be cleared by the camera memory menu choices
      Thanks
