Not using the video mode on mode dial (P,A,S, M, MR, Movie/video...) but fx. using M

Unused stuff in stock: A700, 24-105, 28-135, Sony A100, beercan, 100-200, Sony 70-200f2.8 + teleconverter

Okay, but with that camera you don't gain any extra capability that way. You get all the same options if you (optionally) tell the camera only to enter video mode when the top dial is set for it. Although that requires more button presses to get things started, the option exists to avoid accidentally going into movie mode when you didn't intend to.

Long time ago i used the A77, but it did have something to do with AF capabilities. From A7II going forward it has to do with AF, wifi possibilities and more....

While I am at it: do I understand right that:

EyeAF only works when shooting stills but not video

Using EyeAF for stills with AF-C focus option the little green box stays visible and tracks the subject's eye as it moves

Using EyeAF for stills with AF-S focus option the little green box pops up when focussing on an eye then disappears and is replaced by the larger face recognition box, though focus stays on the eye (even though the green box on the eye has gone)

Face recognition does work for recording video same as for stills, but eyeAF does not?

Ingenious! (Heck maybe it even works too)
