Sony Z7 function questions.....

I like the fact the after doing a white balance in A or B mode, you get a readout of the kelvin temperature after it has completed, but this is only for a few seconds, then the A or B icon reappears....

Is there a way to find out what the current kelvin temperature is for A or B (only the preset temperature seems to appear in the status menu)?

Is there a way to keep the current kelvin temperature on screen, instead of the A or B icon?

I have a non sony battery (energizer), does this only have limited information display on the supplied sony charger? (It doesn't seem to give estimated recharge time etc)

Does the supplied charger only charge one battery at a time? even though it has two slots...

(Sorry for all the questions)

Dont know about the first question but as for the others, Yes non sony batteries only display when they are full and do not show time data on the charger, they will show mins remaining on the camera.

The batt charger does one battery at a time but is auto if you put two batteries in it will do them both in sequence.

Not near the camera right now, but what happens if you try the Status button on the back of the camera? Will that give you the info you're looking for?

Hi Scott,

Yes the status check will tell you the prest temp, but not the A and B temp, which is only briefly displayed after the balance is done on A or B
