Sony A7r III focus point not visible?
« on: August 09, 2018, 11:01:44 AM »

Hey guys!

I find the focus point of my a7r III not really visible compared to the focus point of my Canon 5d.... A lot of times I am struggling to find where the focus dot is. Is there a way to make it more visible? Anybody else experienced this?
Is there a way to improve the responsiveness and visibility of the AF (square) dots?

Thanks!

The easiest way to find it is to push in the center of the AF point selection joystick.  That returns the AF point to the center and then you know exactly where it is.  But I do agree that it could be easier to see.

I see! I will try shooting this way! :) I hope Sony will improve this in the its future cameras.

I have had the same inconvenience as yours and made several appeal to Sony without any success other than hearing apology. Then I found this. In the menu go to the tool box and the page 3 of 7, which is “ touch and touch pad”. Select “ touch panel only”. After this when you touch the position of your preferred focus point in therear monitor the spot you touch will lit. See what will happen.

It wouldn't take a new camera - just a firmware update.

Make it glow red like Canon's.
