As users we have asked you on countless occasions to fix this… 2 FW upgrades later and we are still stuck with this absurd record button in the worst position imaginable. Did anyone try to use this before you sent your drawings for approval…no ! If you are forced to use this REC button you are forced to move the camera in a sidewards motion destroying every start/stop you record.
You have a team of software geniuses who could re-program the record button to work from the shutter button…the same as we get with our Panasonic GH4.
It’s not rocket science Sony…it’s the most requested single feature all A7s users would prefer…please attend to this early 2015 please…you have been asked nicely. A simple menu option will suffice giving the end user the option..button 1 (side), button 2 (top).
