Two great A7r3 setup videos
6

I'm new to Sony as I think many are these days and have read or watched tons of (often conflicting) bits on setting up this camera. But I personally found these two videos got me further along in understanding the Sony menu system and operation than just about anything.  So I thought I'd recommend.
These were created by a Sony ambassador, Mark Galer.

Customizing for portraiture: https://youtu.be/zPpelMC75lw

Customizing for action/sports: https://youtu.be/ZNloKXpUOWA

Interesting takeaways.

  • 8fps "hi" mode is preferred over 10fps "hi+" mode for sports.  Why? He explains it.
  • points out some limitations to AF when shooting at smaller aperture than f8
  • shows how to store the custom modes for recall 
  • shows how to remap the "focus hold" button on many "G" and "GM" lenses to act as the Eye-AF on button
  • ... lots more.

Anyway, for a Nikon guy diving into Sony, these are great (he has a landscape one too).

Regards,

PG
