Video with XE4

Hi

Today I tried to do some family videos with my new XE4 and the 27mm f2.8 kit, overall a good experience and the 4K video with classic neg simulation renders a very high quality video out of the camera.

I found the camera does a decent job tracking a face when face detection is on, which is good because I mostly film my kid so I don't need to worry about selecting focus points. However, can the camera do tracking of anything else besides a face when doing video? I was thinking if it could track my kid's body as a whole it would then do a lot less hunting.

And what is the best lens from Fuji for this purpose? The pancake 27mm f2.8 is great for stills but the autofocus does a horrible noise when filming video. Stabilisation on the other hand I found to be acceptable (not worse than when I tried stabilised body/lenses)

And lastly, has anyone tried a gimbal for video with this camera?

Thanks
