In Video mode I would like to use the Screen to touch and focus.
This when "Servo AF" is turned OFF.
So same functionality as pressing the AF-ON button or the shutter button.
Any ideas why this function is not working?
Moving the focus point on the screen to the right place and then having to press the AF-On button is a bit of a pain especially when the camera is on a gimbal.
Thanks for your ideas

Thank you for providing us with the camera model. The EOS R5, similar to other Canon EOS cameras, will require for the user to press the shutter button halfway down or the AF-ON button to have the camera auto focus on the focus area that's selected after tapping on the subject's location the LCD screen. This is per design of the camera. We recommend on enabling Servo AF when the camera is in video mode for the best auto focus functionality of the camera.

I had the same issue with my 5D mrk IV.
Couldn't belive the function does not exist. And gave up after a while of doing research.
It is literally the first thing I was trying to to. And now moving to the R5 again the first thing.
Any reason why this so extremly handy function is not there?
