On all my Lumix cameras, the AF lock works for video, I lock the focus, hit the video button and the focus is locked.

I can turn the focus ring &c and the focus stays the same (great for prevented ruined shots when the camera is adjusted or bumped).

Set AF+MF = OFF, MF Assist = OFF.

However, in pinpoint mode, when I hit the record button after locking, the AF hold is cancelled. I'd really like to be able to use the focus magnifier with pinpoint mode and lock it down, Anyone know a workaround? Tx.

Thanks for your answer. In pinpoint mode, the AF lock button *says* it is locked after pressing, but hitting the record button (for video) unlocks it, even after using those settings. Not the end of the world, but it would be nice if it worked.
