Re: XZ1 video focus and zoom problem

Until (if ever) they fix the problem, here's what I found out helps a little. It still doesn't improve the awful video quality, but at least it addresses the autofocus issue.

Basically I was told by Oly tech support to use the object-tracking feature. It doesn't work BUT if you turn off the autofocus feature altogether (ala most compact cameras and the s95) you can at least get videos that aren't constantly blurry. Sure you have a fixed focal point, but again...at least your video is watchable.

Good luck! I actually returned my XZ-1 because of the video.
