I didn't know there was an option for anything else except CAF when shooting video. I always shoot with the lever set to AFS but in video mode the camera always shoots CAF.

You can turn off video CAF (menu, video tab, page 1/4, Continuous AF) and use the touchscreen to refocus only when necessary.

Thanks for the tip. I may have to modify my aversion to using the touchscreen (too easy to touch it by mistake - I'm a VF shooter.)

I believe half-pressing the shutter release button also works if you don't want to mess with the touch controls, and with the shutter release button you can set the AF dial to AFS or AFC depending on preference.

edit: No, I just tested, while recording video the G9 ignores AFC dial and you have to release and re-half-press the shutter button to refocus.
