Can't turn Steadyshot off


Recommended Posts

I have an A7R3. I am using a Canon 100mm macro lens. The macro lens has built-in stabilization that I do not want to use because it messes up my macro shots (slider video moves). If I use the lens with its stabilization turn off, the A7R3 Steadyshot turns on and I cannot turn it off. If I use the lens's stabilization, the camera's IBS turns off. Either way I'm stuck with stabilization that I do NOT want.

Is there a way for me to force disable camera's Steadyshot? It's not suitable for macro slider work (video) because it floats around willy nilly ruining my shots.

Push MENU button -> Camera Settings 2 -> Sub menu 4 (Shutter/SteadyShot)

-> SteadyShot  -> Off

-> SteadyShot Adjust -> Manual

This unfortunately does not work. When the lens has stabilization turned on, the camera's Steadyshot is automatically turned off. When the lens has its stabilization turned off, you CANNOT turn the camera's Steadyshot off, even in Manual mode. I think it's because it's a Canon lens on a Sony body.

Then it's all about the adapter ring (EF -> E-mount). Try another model.
