How to use DMF in Sony Mirrorless Cameras

How Can I Use DMF on My Sony Alpha Camera?

Here’s how I found out that Direct Manual Focus (DMF) is more fun than plain old Manual Focus (MF). I was photographing some bicycles in the studio recently and decided to use Manual Focus to ensure that the exact spot that I wanted would be in sharp focus. I also decided that I would use AF before refining my manual focus. I’d do this by using the AF-On button on the back of the camera.

After having used it in this way for a while, I decided to try out the inconspicuous, but ever-present DMF mode. Here’s what I found out about it… It’s exactly what I needed! Maybe you need to try it out too!

Sony Xperia PRO-I Product Launch

Sony Xperia PRO-I: A Camera For Mobile Creators?

Wait, this is a phone… with a 1″ sensor. Not a camera. Sony has been on a roll recently. Hot on the heels of the release of their latest ‘entry-level’ full-frame camera the Sony A7IV, they’ve made news again with a PRO phone which features a 1-inch sensor that they have appropriated from their camera lineup: the aptly named Xperia PRO-I. This phone (camera?) sits alongside the $2,500 Sony Xperia Pro which was released in February 2021.

Both phones are professional tools that rightly deserve the ‘pro’ tag, unlike some others that have the tag just to denote a more premium version. So, what makes it stand out?

Sony Alpha 1

Sony 50Mpx 30 FPS, 8K Beast of a Camera – The Sony α1 (Alpha 1)

Sony announced their flagship mirrorless camera of the Alpha series… the Sony α1 (Alpha 1) on the 26th of January, 2021.

This monster of a camera seems to break free of all the limitations that the Alpha 7 lineup of cameras have. The list of headline features makes you feel like it can ‘do it all’. In particular, the specifications read like a mashup of the A7R line and the A9ii. So what you get are 50 Megapixel images at high frame rates and video resolutions of up to 8K/30p.
