Installed firmware 1.20 - possible video focus problem
Aug 8, 2012

I've been doing a lot of video recently with the V1, and always use the same focussing settings, AF-F, Auto-area with face priority. Always worked brilliantly, and never had a problem.

I just took some video of myself speaking to camera, not moving, with face quite large in the frame. Camera on tripod. 30-110mm lens.

Look what happened: (audio removed)

I switched to single area focus instead of auto-area, but that didn't help. This happened every time at one stage or another in a 2-3 minute film, rendering the clip useless.

Had to switch to manual focus in the end.

Is this related to the latest firmware? I don't know, but it's never happened before and so mighty suspicious!!

Any ideas appreciated.
