The External Monitor software update also gives the Xperia PRO extra control features when using the a1, a7S III, and a7 IV. The External Monitor feature has a trigger function for Rec/Stop available via USB-C cable and it is also able to provide status visibility on the screen including REC status, shutter speed, F-number, ISO, and EV Indication.
