Re: HS30EXR Jerky HD movies

I am also very disappointed with the HS30 video because of that so slow autofocus. I did not expect pro recording, but this slowness makes video recording practically unusable. Much cheaper and older cameras (including the one inside a three-year old iPhone 3GS) could do better job. Very frustrating. Nothing to complain about steady images though, which are quite good for the money.

My results with the HS-30 video have been mostly poor because the continuous auto-focus is too slow to keep up with moderately fast action scenes with relatively small subjects. I am new to using this camera, so maybe someone can tell me how to improve my results. My results so far with still photos in daylight or using the big Fuji flash at night have been above satisfactory.
