How to enable real time eye AF on Sony A7RIII v3.0?


I just updated my Sony A7RIII to firmware version 3.0. This upgrade includes various features such as real time eye auto focus. This means that no bottom needs to be assigned to focus on the eye. The camera focuses on the eye automatically when the eye AF setting is turn on. You can check this info on the links below.

Note: My camera does not focus on the eye in real time (automatically). I have to press and hold the AF-On or half press the shutter to focus on the eye.

- Wide Area

- Face/Eye Prty in AF (ON)
