Thread: Aperture control on A7

  1. #1

    Aperture control on A7

    One thing I found to be very inconvenient is that there is no "clickless" aperture setting for the A7. I don't mind this in photography, but it becomes an inconvenient factor for video. If the A7s MKII is released, I think that the biggest benefit would be to implement a click/clickless feature to the aperture dial. We can not control the aperture from the lenses and the click noise is distracting to hear as well as shakes the camera.

    I tried to find a place on the Sony site to write them this, but they didn't have specific emails to write for Cameras. Though for their other products they did.

    I would love to test out the clickless aperture ring feature on the Loxia series of lenses. Man do I want that 50mm f/2 Loxia!

    I agree that would be an important feature. My guess would be that the dial would have to be replaced with a smooth turning one as well. Smooth aperture control as well as in body IS to use with electronic manual lenses like the LOXIAs would be ideal.
