  1. Hi. I wasn’t sure which community to post this in. I frequently shoot track meets & 10K running races and usually use my 7RV with my Sony 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 lens. My problem last weekend was that my tracking square was not rendering in my viewfinder. This is the 1st time this ever happened. My default AF mode is Spot Tracking-L, & I have a button assigned that disengages tracking until I find my target face/eye, and then I let go, and finally the little red rectangle hovers over the eye or face of my desired subject. However, last weekend the square didn’t appear. I was therefore forced to use non-tracking spot focus (like the old days). Note that I frequently track far-away runners but I still never had this problem. Is anyone else familiar with this problem? Any ideas? When I got home I tested my tracking (with my wife as a subject) and it was working fine. I’m really upset by this occurrence but I don’t know who to contact. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  2. Hello. I upgraded to the 2.0 firmware, which has the capability to assign a button to switch between different faces in a group photo. I want to assign a button on my A7V to do this. My question is: what is the exact action-text I’m looking for in the scrolling menu? There are so many screens of actions to choose from (many of which relate to focus) and I want to make sure I select the correct action. Thank you.
  3. Thanks- I don’t want to lose cont AF!
  4. I finally got the chance to use the DMF focussing feature on my A7RV, when I shot a kitten thru a mesh fence. It worked great! But my question is, if I left my focus mode permanently on DMF (not that i would) what would be the disadvantages of doing so? I think I would set DMF during a zoo visit.
  5. I’ve been shooting Sony for 3 years and for the 1st time I tried to take a “Selfie” with my A7R5. Specifically, I had to take a passport renewal photo. I had my camera on a tripod and used the 10-second timer, but I discovered that I wasn’t able to use tracking, even in continuous mode. Isn’t there a way to accomplish eye-focus on myself without using a remote shutter?
