Re: Sony FS5 PROBLEM

No it is not a bug. The camera is working the way it was designed to work.
When the "A" appears it is running in auto, so naturally you cannot change the setting manually at that point.

Re: Sony FS5 PROBLEM

I've noticed this too Docea, when the AF switch is on Auto, it sometimes seems that the settings cannot be activated with the quick selection button.

Re: Sony FS5 PROBLEM

Either I don't understand what you are saying, or you are incorrect.

I just went and got my camera out and put the Sony 18-105 lens on AF. And I still have full manual control over the exposure settings with the Direct Menu function on Assign Button #5.

What am I doing differently? Please tell me exactly how to setup the camera to recreate the issue you are noticing. I don't have the 10-18 lens you are using, but I don't see how that would make a difference.

Re: Sony FS5 PROBLEM

Not sure if this is related but I think i discovered a while back that having Face Detection on with that Sony G 18-105 kit lens means you can't access the Direct Menu via the button on the side hand grip. Not in front of my FS5 right now so would have to check/hope this helps rather than confuses anyone.

Re: Sony FS5 PROBLEM

Yes, Andy. I'll bet that is his issue. When Face Detect is turned on you cannot adjust the shutter speed manually no matter what method you try. It has nothing to do with the Direct Menu joystick method and it is not a bug. Just one of many limitations of the camera. Good call.
