Video mode won't focus on S6300
Jan 26, 2013

I got a Coolpix S6300 for Christmas. It replaced an old Kodak EasyShare from many years ago. I wanted a camera that shot 1080p video, and I had read some good reviews for the Coolpix. Unfortunately, the focus feature on the camera is terrible. Despite having all the settings correct, I can't get the camera to focus on objects as I zoom in. I hold the camera still for about 30 seconds, hoping the camera will eventually focus on the object, but it never happens. I've tried this several times in different lighting, but it still won't focus properly.

I'm going to return the canera and look for something else. Can anyone recommend another camera with decent video focusing?

Thanks!
