Having owned the A7rivA for a couple of weeks now, I’m dissapointed to find that the animal eye detection is not available when continuous tracking is selected. I’ve watched a few Sony videos showing how good the animal eye detection is; but now realise the videos show the animal stationary every time and Sony conveniently omit to mention the function is not available when continuous focus tracking is selected.

It’s a real disappointment, given that we have a 6 month old puppy that can’t sit still for two seconds.

I'm thinking the A7 IV has you covered, John.
