How to lock auto focus on Sony a7R III?

2 years 2 months ago #685901 by Jon East
Right now I need to keep the focus button pressed to focus and get my green box.  Is there a way where I can ditch that with something that has a simple on or off function?  That way I don't need to always hold the button down all the time?

You don't provide enough information regarding what you're actually doing. Video? Tracking shots? What?

That said, you might be looking for "back button focusing". If so, the google has many links:

If not, perhaps some clarification as to what you're doing will help get a good answer to your question.
