HF G40 Spotlight issues

I have a HF G40 and I video plays sometimes.  I normally used the auto setting (I'm kinda a novice and when I tried Cinema setting I didn't like the quality) but when someone is spotlighted unless I zoom in pretty tight they are almost a ball of light.  Please help with this issue because I really like this camera especially the low light videos.

 

Thanks

For difficult lighting situations you need to use manual exposure. I would suggest you have a good read of the user manual. This is a link for the European Legria version. The Canon USA website will have the Vixia version.

lamintheUK, thanks for the reply.  Normally when I try manual seeting, the video is jerky but I'll do more reading and hopefully I'll figure it out.
