I only use my alpha camera in manual focus with vintage lenses so the absence of focusing mode setting reflects this.
I only shoot RAW stills, yet… see notes below.
Comments on my settings
When the white balance is assigned to a custom button, I see the “set custom white balance” available. On the other hand I cannot see this if I assign the WB function to the wheel
The shoot mode (A, P, M…) would seem redundant because of the large physical wheel however this cannot be used while in movie mode
I only use RAW when shooting stills however I chose to have a function to select the image quality because this is also the fastest way to verify that I am actually shooting RAW. Too many times I shot jpg thinking it was RAW
Picture Effect, Picture Profile and Creative Style obviously do not affect raw stills but are very useful for movies. The goal for their choice should be: get in camera the look as close as possible to the one you intend to have at the end of the postproduction.
