Do you have a similar one for the A9ii? I can advise you to pay attention to the possibility of buying online written work from assignment masters uk.

Picked up the book a few weeks back and love it, good stuff! Question… is my research and playing around with my a1 correct in that Sony doesn’t have a focus stacking or focus shift function? Seems crazy for a flagship camera these days.

Bought your A1 guide, 3 days later I had customized the camera as per the book. Trying to remember all my custom buttons so I have been trying it out practicing on birds at bird feeder. Can’t seem to get the camera to lock on the bird to track. Watched the 42 min video. Appears everything is set as per the video. I’m a back button shooter and have the back focus button activate tracking as you recommend and while the point goes thru to show the tracking confirmation, small flying birds fly off and the focus point is left… Read more »

This is a great guide and ridiculously cheap. I don’t normally pay for bird photography advice but this has been invaluable to me due to my complete move from Nikon to Sony.

Thanks Steve for another great video! It’s a great overview as to what the Sony A1 is capable of but I would urge anyone who wants to squeeze the full potential of what the A1 can do, BUY THE GUIDE! I bought it last week before heading to Northern MN to photograph owls and my keeper rate went up exponentially. I especially had issues with capturing birds in flight but the sections alone on autofocus settings and modes worked astoundingly well! And the section on button customization for changing AF modes was especially helpful. I think this is my sixth… Read more »

Great video thx. I have the new A7 IV and am wondering if your A1 setting would be appropriate for the A7IV. Any thoughts?

Good work Steve. Enjoyed the video but am enjoying the A1 guide even more!!
Correction you may want to double check. At the 28 minute mark of the video, the text below the focus peaking example says “It’s saved in the actual image”………….referring to the added “paint”.

Shouldn’t that read It’s NOT saved……………..?
