In this article/ video tutorial, I wanted to show you guys how to custom configure your Sony A7 series camera for Back Focus, Zoom, and the Standard Center Button! I used the newer Sony A7rII for this, but all the A7 series cameras can be custom configured.
It’s very easy to do, once it’s explained, but it can be confusing due to the crazy deep menu system and huge amount of options when configuring. It can be hard to tell which feature is actually the one you want for a given task. Sometimes, you have to turn off one thing in order to make something else work as well. You will see what I mean in the video below.
Once you watch the video, you should have a really good idea how this process works, and can then experiment with confidence any other features you are interested in. I will be happy to help as well, so please feel free to ask questions below if you have them as always…
