Wish the video record buttons on Sony’s a7S II and a7R II cameras were actually usable? Here’s your chance to win a free Cineasy Touch Video Button Enhancement that could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What was Sony thinking with the video record button on their A7-series cameras? Even with all the criticism it received on the first generation cameras, the record button remains essentially unchanged in this new generation of cameras. The video button is tiny, awkwardly positioned, and set flush with the camera body. All of this makes the button difficult to find and use when you’ve got your eye up to the camera’s viewfinder.
It’s like they don’t actually expect you to use the video button when shooting video.
Thankfully, the a7S II and a7R II allow you to assign video recording to one of the camera’s customizable buttons. I use the C1 button on top of the a7S II for this, and it makes things infinitely easier.
However, if you want to conserve your customizable buttons for a function that doesn’t already have its own dedicated button, Cineasy Touch may have a solution for you– their Video Button Enhancement is custom-designed to sit atop the camera’s default video button to give you a larger button that’s easier to locate and press when you want to start or stop video recording. It should also help to keep your camera steady once you start rolling as your thumb won’t be fumbling trying to find the video button any longer.
