Matt,
You must change the Metabones mode from Green to "Advanced".

Believe its in advanced mode otherwise the AF wouldn't function at all. Correct?

1. Yes, you can choose b/w AUTO, EVF or LCD in menu.

2. Sadly, not that I know of. You also cannot trigger the shutter with a wireless remote while zoomed, which is rather annoying. I have a knock-off remote; I am assuming the same is true with the wireless OEM.



Thanks for the answer. I know that I can set the MONITOR/FINDER in the menu. But when I do so, I don't see an option to quickly switch to the EVF by the push of a button. I will always have to go to the menu to access the EVF or Live View. That would be very annoying.

Cheers,
Andreas

Fred, this is really getting odd. I have the same instructions. Followed the steps with camera on first w/o the lens as it states and attaching the lens+adapter combo yet, I get AF lock with beep but no DMF etc... BUT with the 70-200 it works as you indicated. Maybe its the 24-105 combo that doesn't work correctly

Hello friends,
perhaps it was covered by another post, but I need help;
I assume that I have some pictures stored on the internal memory of the camera (A7R) since I was shooting without an sd card;
how can I transfer this data to the sd card or to the computer, which ever is easier ?

Thank you in advance.

Is there any place in the a7r's camera menu to add your username/copyright that will be appended to the iptc of each image taken from the camera? If not, is there an easy/free software to add that to the ARW file? The only way I can do it now is by using irfanview software to add it to the jpg's, but it would be nice to have it on the arw files.

No. What software do you use for processing?

I looked for the same, so far I didn't see a way to add the copyright information into the RAW files of the A7R. It should be hopefully added as option in a future firmware or Sony software update.

I am using LR 5.3 and PS CS6 (more the latter). Not sure if there is a way to do it?

Typically cameras have a small buffer, but don't allow transfers from it. When I try this on my A7, it keeps only one shot at a time, and if I then insert an SD card (either turning off the camera or leaving it on), that one image is gone. You would need to re-take the photos, unfortunately.

You can type info like that into an import action in Lightroom, and have it automatically applied at import time. It won't end up in the raw, but typically you don't give anyone the raw anyway. By the time you have processed and exported a JPG, it will be present.

It can be done with exiftool via the -copyright option.

I'm using sony's Image Data Converter, slow as molasses. I don't have LR (is LR any faster?), I've always used Canon's DPP for my canon raw files. I'm just starting to use the A7r and so far here is my workflow:

- download files via sony playmemory (only because it places it in separate folders and I don't have to worry about it)

- edit in Sony IDC and save to jpg.

- batch add copyright to jpg using free irfanview software.

- rotate/straighten jpg in canon dpp (good ol' dpp!)

- Additional editing if needed in photoshop cs3 (that's all I have to work with)

Lightroom (and Aperture and Capture One and...) can handle most of these steps, but the rendering isn't better than all other programs. Try the 30-day free download to see if you like its processing.

fwiw, having copyright info. in the raw file instead of jpg helps when proof of ownership comes to that point since the raw file, as far as I can see and as far as these responses show, cannot be added after the fact, at least not by normal means.

If exiftool is not considered as "normal tool" then there are not many options (most graphical inteface EXIF editors base their operation to exiftool...). In my "world" exiftool is real tool, same as commercial stuff from Adobe, Apple, Phase One whatever company etc.


If you don't worry "normal tools" and other less important things, you can build workflow in which your RAW-file EXIF contains copyright info. Mine contains in addition lens, filter(s), used aperture (even lens is fully mechanical, thou it depends do I anymore remember when I import photo to computer, or if I made notes, or can determine it from other factors) and GPS coordinates.

Samuli, I wasn't addressing my post at you, and I must have missed the part about your exiftool being able to work on arw raw files when I first took a glance at the link, but I do see it now. I'll have to give it a try, thanks. But if exiftool can change the iptc of arw raw files, then my original premise that arw raw files can be a proof of ownership is no longer valid. +

No worries - due to this true professional cameras have accessories, which can be used to proof that files are original (e.g. "Canon Data Verification kit"). EXIF (and IPTC, whatever headers) can be modified almost freely and copied between files etc. EXIF can be nice reference, but wouldn't trust it on important stuff.
