I am trying to mount my new Scout on my Sony a 33. The special Sony instructions tell me to look under the Menu button for Custom Menu and Shutter lock. I can find neither of these terms. The lens attaches but does not fire? thank u joanlvh

Hi joanlvh--

I shoot with sony cameras as well but not the a33 (a100 and a700). However, I did a little research and found the manual...

My best guess is press Menu button->Custom Menu 1->Release w/o Lens->Enable. (from Page151 of the a33 manual...at least the pdf-version). (Custom Menu=the little gear-wheel-thingy).

This *should* work. Basicly, since the LB is entirely manual--it has no chip and does not communicate with the camera at all--the camera treats it as "no lens attached". It's unfortunate that Sony does not use consistent vocabulary/terminology from one camera/manual to another (this has come up before...) and the LB folk I'm sure have their hands full trying to keep up with all of it (for all the many camera brands out there...).

Hope this helps and please let us know how it works for you--
