Customer Question
Can you help with...

Can you help with the Sony aR7III camera? Specifically about custom key assignment?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your AR7III?

About a month.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your AR7III?

A number of things. Specifically I'm interested in AF/MF control as described on page 77 of the Help Manual.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Basically, I 've gone from Menu2 (Camera Settings2) to the first Custom Key, to the AF-On button, but I cannot find the (AF/MF Control Hold) in the menu. One tech support person has said this cannot be done.
