"Suggested Settings" for NEX cameras
Jan 10, 2012

I have been touring the threads and I think we need a good summary of what folks use for suggested settings. Here is some of the information I have gathered.... (It is a bunch of cut and paste from threads. I apologize for not keeping the posters names.)

RGB 1998
Put ISO on the bottom button

In camera:
AF/MF Select: DMF

Autofocus Area: Center

In Setup:
AF Illuminator: Off

Peaking Level: High

Peaking Color: Red

MF Assist: 2 secs

Metering
Many set to matrix but centered or spot for getting it exposed right at night.
Put AEL toggle on a button to let you grab exposure and re-focus.

RJF

Now for some way other than a long set of forum posts to keep this up to date.
