Cannot Proceed Message on EX1/EX3

Post by alisterchapman » February 2nd, 2011, 9:28 pm

If you try to use the white balance, shutter or gain switch and you get a message that says "cannot proceed", don't panic. Your camera is not broken. You have the direct menu set to "all" (others menu). With direct menu set to all these switches are disabled and instead you can control the settings using the little joystick on the top of the camera handle. To restore the switch operation set direct menu to "part"

Thank you for this... wouldn't it be nice if Sony included this important little bit in the manual? (Surely, a question that plumbs the depths of naiveté).
