You can engage the half press by selecting the zone set for the receiving MultiMAX II on your transmitting MultiMAX II. Deselecting the zone with also disengage the half press on the receiving radio. Most photographers use this setting so that their remote camera stays in autofocus mode.
This is the default setting.
Manual 1/2 Press: This function allows you an activate half press on the remote camera with radio attached by a remote triggering cable with either a MultiMAX II or Plus III as the receiver when your on-camera radio is also half pressed.
Manual 1/2 Press is recommended for use when using a Sony camera as your remote camera.
