Re: A1: How do I set movie clips to record muted? - Different tracking than stills?

Hi all,

I've 2 Qs about the A1:

1) Where do I set movie clips to be silent (no audio)?

2) Where do I set my clips tracking, separate from stills?

I've gone through the menu several times without success.

I did upgrade my firmware to the 1.10, but I don't see any difference - at least for the better...-Actually, my stills settings seems to switch automatically from tracking small to tracking wide, without consulting me...

-Any help in understanding how to set these thing up will be greatly appreciated.


3 weeks ago, I thought that dialing to "movie" and setting the recording to "0", would do the trick and silence the sound, but to no avail.

In subsequent clips, as always when working from one of my custom settings on dial, which should have had the sound on null,  I found out the hard ways that it insists on recording sounds.

It's not a deal breaker, since through software like DaVinci Resolve, I easily mute the sound, but it's a nag that was not until now a problem (on the A9, A7Riv, and former SLT cameras: A99ii, A77ii A77V), on all of these there was no such issue.

-Again, if someone has managed to prevent the clips from producing sound, or even recording it in the first place, I sure would appreciate their help.
