Reader Question: Eye AF with Sony RX10 III

See my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

In the Sony RX10 III, there were two things I could not find – one was programming the focus hold button on the lens to eye detection, and the other was to enable the remote control for hands-free shutter release. Let me know if you came across these anywhere.

DIGLLOYD: I get a fair number of similar emails; the Sony menu system is designed to use inconsistent terminology 10% of the time and to randomly place related items in unrelated menus 50% of the time! Dispersing focusing-related settings into all sorts of different menus shows a stunning lack of awareness of using the gadget as a camera.

The programming is the same as for the Sony A7R II, as found in Sony A7R II: Configuring Autofocus + Eye AF — Gear Menu #5 - Custom Key (shoot) 2nd page, Focus Hold Button = Eye AF.

As for the remote release, I can’t find that either; maybe the RX10 III does not support it.

Two reasons why the (previous model) Sony RX10 II may be a preferable choice for video journalists:

1) Built in neutral density filter - lacking in the Sony RX10 III
2) Constant f/2.8 across the range.
