However, that is not what Sony appeared to be advising when they said to use the camera socket instead of the lens collar.

Using the camera’s tripod mount instead of a lenses is not how I read Sony’s advice:

  • If using heavy lens, to prevent camera shake, fix the camera itself with a tripod or monopod, instead of using just a tripod-mounting collar for the lens.”

the operative word there is “just”. It would have been much clearer if Sony had used the word “only” instead of “just”.

My take was "fix camera itself...instead of using tripod collar" and that didn't make sense.
