Download Sony a7rIII Manual Preliminary

This is the manual for the new Sony a7r III / mark 3 46mp full frame camera with touch screen. We think this is a preliminary copy since it does not match the menu of the cameras we played with at Photo Plus Expo. We still think it's enough to feed those waiting for their a7r III pre-orders.

Download the a7r iii manual via Dropbox.

So what comes in the box if you bought a body only a7r III?

Accessories included with Sony a7r III

So here is the discrepancy in the manual, under Shoot / Drive Mode, Px. Shift Multi Shoot is missing. I hope the next revision will have better detail on Pixel Shift shooting.

Here is the Shoot Mode / Drive 1 menu on a pre-production Sony a7r III showing the Pixel Shift option.

Pre-order your a7r III from Amazon and support this site.

In case the Dropbox link dies, here is the Google link for the a7r III owner's manual.

Sony NEX-7 Rear Button Focus

Figure 1. Rear Button aka AF/MF Button Controls Autofocus.
Here's a way to autofocus using the rear AF/MF button instead of the shutter button. You can then separate focus from locking exposure with the shutter button half press. This will also prevent the lens from prefocusing when in AF or DMF mode.

Setting up the NEX-7 to use AF/MF Rear Button Focus.
Set the camera to Manual Focus, Figure 2.Set the AF/MF Control to HOLD, Figure 3.Set the AF/MF Button to AF/MF Control, Figure 1.Set the Function Button to Focus Settings, Figure 4. This will let us control the focus point via Flexible Spot. You can also use Center focus point then Recompose. The camera must be in MF or DMF mode, Figure 2., to use Focus Settings.
