N5 + 50/1.8 steady focus in videos
Jun 16, 2012

I hope someone can post a tip.

5N + 50/1.8 is my current set-up. I try to film, but the AF starts playing with me.

When I film my girls do gymnastics or walk/run in a room - I have a hard time keeping the focus. I have trie various set-up combinations, but cannot control the focus very well.

Eg. the person is close to the camera, who then walk away from the camera - the focus starts to go off. Eventually catches up , but I dont want the focus to got out at all.

Any good tips for keeping a steady focus when filming a lot of action in a room?

Thx,
TH, Copenhagen, DK
