Let's Talk Focus on a6500 for Video
So I am trying to clear the confusion I have about the way the AF-C works on the a6500 in conjunction with the Focus Zones, the AF Track Sens, and Face Detect in situations when I want simply to record video on a human subject that does move quite a bit (read: kids).
I am trying to find a setting that makes sense to the camera and get the best of focus tracking on a moving target.
I am aware of the Center Lock-on AF that tracks the subject but honestly, I didn't have much luck with it, and I find it that it cannot be trusted (for instance tracking a kid running, while another one crosses the path and "steals" the tracking point from the previous.
I don't understand how the Flexible and Expand Flexible Spot focus area works differently from simply tapping the touch screen to do a focus pull on a subject while I am in Wide Zone.
To complicate things, how does Face Detect play in when I have my Focus zones set to one of the Expandable spots?
I think it's a priority game on what function takes precedence in achieving focus on a moving target. And that's the thing I am trying to understand. I am curious how some of you aproach the focus settings on several situations with moving targets.
Thanks a lot for reading my ramblings
