G7X II frustration and how to have sharp video


I purchased a G7X mark II based on countless reviews stating that this is the ultimate vlogging camera with a sharp video output.

For me, it is a failure overall, I can't get sharp video out of it.

From extremely blurry to blurry to "not sharp" and crawling edges, the footage is bad quality 90% of the time.

When I compare to an old sony nex7, the sony has so much better sharpness and image quality and the focus is so easier to deal with, despite the fact of the much older technology.

I assume it is due to severe autofocus issues the G7X ii suffer from.

But then is the question: how to get focus correctly with this device? Even manually it seems that it always introduce a kind of automation to it.

And another: how to get locked infinite focus so I always focus on everything in the frame to avoid this frustration?

Thank you for helping. I began to loose hope in this camera and to see it only as a still shooting device (which it does good btw).
