ILCE-7M2 Toggle FINDER/MONITOR via Custom-Button

by alohse11 Rookie on ‎06-10-2017 04:38 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I was eagerly waiting for the latest Firmware-Update 4.00

 

And I was very disappointed to find out that there is still no option to toggle between FINDER/MONITOR via easy access!

 

I found that I am not the only one, having problems with the extreme sensitive proximity sensor.

Which is very annoying in good lighting conditions! 

 

All that would not be that much of a problem if there would be an easy one-button toggle option.

 

I cannot believe that a 1500€ camera has no option for that, but just it's big-brother R-series.

 

And I am not even asking for an option to set the preferred proximity sensitivity.

 

Come on SONY ... is the only work around solution really putting duct-tape on a pro-style camera?

Sony completely ignored all hundreds of prayers from the community to do it.

The pity is that this function is available for the RII starting from firmware 3.30, more than one year ago.

 

SO IT CAN BE DONE MORE THAN EASILY.

 

Clearly for them a 1550 bucks cameras is a side product compared to the more expensive ones.

Personally I own a 7II and I'm disgusted for their behaviour. This is not being a serious company

Up to now, I'll never buy again or recommend any Sony product.

 

NOT A SERIOUS COMPANY
