Cineasy Touch Video Record Button Enhancement for the Sony A7S

By technical editor Matt Allard:

The Sony A7S and the Sony A6000 cameras are great for shooting video but the video record button is too small, awkwardly placed and slightly recessed. This makes it very difficult to start recording without a lot of searching and fumbling around. It sometimes requires removing your eyes from the viewfinder to even locate the button.

Cineasy have come up with a low cost solution called the Cineasy Touch Button Enhancement The Cineasy Touch installs in just minutes and according to the company offers a much more intuitive and responsive experience. It provides a larger point of contact which can easily be found without removing your eye from the view finder.

It attaches to the neck strap eyelet nearest the video button with the included screw. The Cineasy Touch Button then provides you with a larger point of contact so you can find the record button quickly. My only concern looking at the design is that by making the record button larger and not recessed it may well be more suseptable to being knocked during recording.

The solution will work on the Sony A7, A7R, A7S and A6000 cameras.

The Cineasy Touch Button Enhancement retails for $24.95 US for the A7S model and $19.95 US for the A6000 model. It can be purchased from the Cineasy website or from eBay.
