R5 video autofocus

Hi,

After having the R5 for one and a half years now, for the last two weeks I have been exploring the video functionalities and I like them so far.

But one thing I have not been able to find out is, if there is a possibility to set the focus (a fixed distance) by tapping on the screen while filming.

With movie servo AF deactivated, this does not work. Tapping on the screen only moves the focus point/zone, but does not actually focus.

With movie servo AF activated though, the camera always focusses on the object that is covered by the selected AF point. So, when I pan the camera, the focus (distance) changes. I would like the focus to stay at a fixed distance until I tap on the screen again to set a new focus distance.

Is this possible?

Thanks a lot!

Thomas
