I am looking for advice on 2 menu settings for the Sony a7r2:


1) Silent Shooting option - sounds great - don't scare your subjects - but the user's manual warns that this can result in image distortion if either the subject or camera is moving. Does anyone have experience with this to report what sort of distortion and how bad? I'm guessing they are referring to something similar to what you can get from a leaf shutter on a Hasselblad when there is very fast subject movement, but would like to hear from someone who has used the silent option on the Sony.


2) Copyright info - There is a menu screen to add in your copyright name in order to have your copyright notice added to the EXIF info as you shoot. But there is no obvious way to enter the info, and no instructions in the manual. Nikon has this, and a keyboard comes up on the LCD screen so you can enter your name, but if Sony has this, I haven't found how to access it. Anybody know how to get the name into the camera?
