Can someone kindly give me the quick cheat tip on how to change the setting to start/stop shooting videos using the primary shutter release button instead of the "Start Stop" button to the right of the viewfinder? I'm trying to shoot video in selfie mode with LCD screen flipped outwards and lens pointing at me. It's pretty much impossible to press the tiny start/stop button at the back of the body. Thank you much!!

Yellow Wrench Option item 4

"Shutter btn function for Movies"

Here you can set half-press / fully press

If you set half press to meter + one shot AF which is ideal sometimes the video will not start recording if it can't focus. Not good for vlogging.

YES, that works!!! There is another menu below for "Fully-press" and change from "No function" to "Start/stop mov rec". This works perfectly to start/stop movies when pressing the shutter release button "all the way down".

I was so frustrated by this! Thank you!!!!

Thanks you for bringing that to my attention.  I searched threw the manual and didn't find anything.  I guess I flat out missed it ;(

I will be more careful answering in the future
