GH3 autofocus problems in video with 14-140
11 months ago

I'm using the GH3 for events videography with the 14-140 4.0-5.8 lens (the old one - bought as a kit with the camera) and I'm experiencing some problems with autofocus in AFC mode (example videos at the end of the post). The AF gets confused in *direct sunlight* when shooting people moving (like dancing running etc).

I'm shooting in creative video mode.

Settings:

AF mode: 23-Area

Motion picture menu: exposure mode: P, Continuous AF: ON

Custom menu: Quick AF: ON

Please don't tell me to shoot in manual focus or AFS. At this price point the least I'm expecting is reliable AF in direct sunlight.

Of the 30-40 clips shot that day 5-6 had the problem.
