steadyshot and adapter issues with A Lens

Hi. Please, I need help.

I have the FS100 with the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 LENS (Carl Zeiss)

and the Sony LAEA1 ADAPTER f/A-MOUNT LENS.

In menu settings on the cam I can't access STEADYSHOT, it's gray, and on the lcd display it's shows as "off". Is this normal or I have a faulty unit?

Also each time I change the Iris the adapter makes an important noise. I can imagine this to be normal, but I am quite worried about the steadyshot.

Thank you

Martin

May be I am wrong, but there is no optical stabiliser in FS100, it's lens feature.

Martin, I think Jarda is correct. This is from the manual " You cannot set [STEADYSHOT] when an E16
mm F2.8 lens (sold separately) or an A-mount
lens (sold separately) is attached." My Question is Does the auto focus work? You are the only one that I know of to ask. I would love to know as would countless other.

Thanks for your answers. And no, the autofocus doesn't work. When I try it says "non corresponding lens"

Martin,
Thank you for that nagging question i had. Sony really got it wrong on this one. I will stick with Nikon mount
lens. That lens is still a great lens though.

Re: steadyshot and adapter issues with A Lens

By the way, I have not much experience with nxcam's.

But after some tests I can not see the difference between FX and FH in 25p, even if the manual says that ones records at 24mbps and the other one 17. Neither I can see it on 50i.

So which recording mode is recommended?

Also, what are the advantages of recording in S&Q mode rather than in "smooth slow rec"? besides the fact the second one is only a 10 seconds shot.

thank you!
