Camera Setup: Matt K's First 10 α7R III Menu Settings

The deep menu settings in Sony cameras give photographers the ability to create truly bespoke cameras that are set up for their needs and how they shoot. Like most professional photographers, Sony Artisan Matt Kloskowski has several cameras and whenever he gets a new one, he goes into the menus and gets things set up the way he likes. In this video Matt K goes through the 10 settings he changed on his α7R III right out the box. The settings are listed below.
