Re: Lumix G9: Any solution to video CAF problems?

The LUMIX AF Guidebook calls out surfing as an example of when you would use the following settings:

The main subjects continue to be tracked even when obstacles appear or the subjects move out of the AF area. This setting is recommended, for example, when shooting sports action where the subjects move quickly, the subjects move out of the AF area during handheld shooting, other players cross in front of the subjects, or obstacles enter the frame.

AF Sensitivity [ -1 ]
With this setting, the focus strongly persists. In situations such as doing the butterfly stroke when swimming, where the subject's face is often hidden from view, the focus remains in the initial position, preventing it from moving to the background, to continue shooting the main subjects.

AF Area Switching Sensitivity [ +1 ]
This is effective for movements that greatly change the position within the frame.

Moving Object Prediction [ +2 ]
This copes with situations where the subject suddenly stops moving or changes direction. It is effective, for example, in a soccer match to keep surrounding players inside the frame while clearly capturing the player who has the ball.
