Please post your A7/r settings here

Hi, I just got my A7 and wondering what are the most useful setting you guys can recommend to change out of the box. I listed my preference, let me know what you think

Radissimo settings- e.g.what I changed:

( listed from beginning to end, or from left to right)

1) image quality Fine-> extraFine

2) Focus Mode-> DMF (shows peaking always ON)

3) Focus area ->center spot

4) AF illuminator --> Off (?more quicker focusing,less annoying)

5) ISO--> Auto ISO (min:100 max:6400)

6) DRO/HDR--> Off (prefer to be done in PP)

7) Focus Magnif. time--> No limit

8) Peaking level --> High ( on my Nex-6 I had Low)

9)Phase Detect Area--> On (helps me to stay without that area for faster focusing + reminds me a viewfinder of old SLR

10) release w/o lens --> Enable

11) e-front curtain shutter--> ON (A7 only, needs more research if not damaging the picture quality as some posters noticed)

12) APS-C size capture--> Off (as I am using my 35mm f1.8 OSS lens with acceptable vignetting)

13) Dial Wheel --> Lock (as too easy to change ISO)

14) Display Rotation--> Auto

15) Mode dial guide--> On (not need to look on the dial only)

Outstanding questions:

A) what is your Creative style preference (Std/Vivid? Contrast /Sat/sharpness?)

B) AF micro adjustment (cogwheel, menu 5)??

C) Lens Comp--?? all AUTO

D) YOUR CUSTOM FUNCTION MENU SETTINGS?

E) YOUR CUSTOM KEY SETTINGS (C1,C2,C3) ?

F) YOUR CUSTOM MAIN DIAL SETTINGS?
