Sony A7R III Settings For Filmmaking

Sony A7R III Settings For Filmmaking

Here are my video settings for the Sony A7R III. These settings are for filmmakers and video creators. This is a quick start guide to start shooting video with the following info: Customizing buttons on camera for video, how to make a custom menu, setting up custom function buttons, focus modes, focus magnification, focus peaking, zebras, aps-c vs full frame, touch screen, moving focus point with joystick, eye autofocus, white balance, ISO, picture profiles, Slog2, Slog3 and creative profiles for vlogging vs cinematic filmmaking, how to get the most dynamic range out of your settings, audio levels, setting manual exposure for video, shutter release to record video, in-camera steady shot stabilization, custom dial setup for aperture and shutter speed, relieving issue with camera overheating and cinematic super slow motion. I don’t cover the entire menu as it’s a massive menu system, but I do go through the entire menu page by page so you can at least check out each setup visually. I hope this helps you setup your A7R III for shooting video 🙂
