A7r II: "your settings" thread
  • What are the essential changes to the default settings on the A7r II? (Switch off remote ctrl, put on flight mode, change the function settings to remove those that duplicate existing buttons / keys (bonus points if you can explain the difference between these)?How do you set up settings 1 and 2? Photo / video? Native / legacy lense
  • Do you set your centre button to the mysterious "standard"? What function do you assign to the down button of the dial?
  • Now that there is a further Custom button, how do you use them?
  • How do you use the AF / AEL button?
  • Do you use DRO, when shooting raw?
  • Which focusing modes work best with native / manual lenses and how do you get quick access?
  • Are the zebra stripes useful for stills?  At what setting?
  • What focus peaking settings are most effective (in low / daylight)?
  • Is the internal "help guide" helpful (in English, say) or does it just expand the name of the setting ("the on switch switches the camera on", etc)

These, and other basic customisation questions, are (to be) addressed in this thread...

I look forward to learning from your contributions.

Sony a7R II
