Flexible Spot Button on a7r3

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I just purchased an a7r3 and I have a question for members who own the same camera. I find it difficult to use the flexible spot button on the rear of the camera. It doesn't seem to move well compared to using the center button dial that I used on my a7r2. Any thoughts on how to improve the use of the flexible spot button? I know you can use the screen to place the spot but I was out shooting last night in cold conditions and my fingers were too cold to set the spot.

Sorry, but I also have the A7 R III, and the " Joystick " button has worked perfectly, for me, throughout this English Winter.

I think you need to be at home, in the warm, then while both you & the camera are warm, you set the  flexible spot button, to your preference.

Then go  out & take pictures.......

Remember that freezing, or very cold temperatures, quickly destroy battery strength !

Take 2 fully charged batteries, in a bag, around your neck, next to your skin !

When you want to take a picture, insert a battery.

When your camera misbehaves, swop the batteries.

    • Since you're specifically asking for an "RGB" histogram: I'm afraid, this is not possible. However, If you're fine with an "intensity" histogram without differentiating for RGB, then maybe you'll want to take a look at this.
    • I want to do focus bracketing with my Sony A7 r4. I want to shoot in raw and do not want the results stacked in camera (I want to do that later.)   Are there products that will do this for me?
    • When you review your image after capture you can view a RGB Histogram. Is it possible to view this RGB Live Histogram by assigning it to a C1, C2 etc button, which you can press to view it before you take the shot, rather than  after the capture.
    • I am seriously changing my equipment to the Sony range. With my current eyesight I need the most consistent and accurate Eye AF for non static people shots. The 24 or 42 meg sensors are not an issue, both would be fine. Any advice regarding the A9 vs A7R111 would be most appreciated regarding the Eye AF.
