NEX-7: DMF for video
I am loving the DMF focus option on the NEX-7, which allows you to use auto-focus to bring the subject under focus, then use manual tweaking, with peaking AND magnification to tune focus in and out, which looks beautiful on preview, but it does not work once you press record for video!
With the 7D, pre-focussing before pressing record was how I got around not having a loupe in low-light and fast-moving situatons, but it still allowed manual 'organic' focussing after pressing record, especially if you wanted to change subject of focus with some control...clunky, but it worked.
Has anyone managed to do this for the NEX-7? Is there a setting I am missing? Or is this only possibly with Manual Focus setting?
