SL3 Video Autofocus problems


New camera and I can use some suggestions on settings for video and focus. Maybe it's the settings I have on the camera but here is what happens.


When I am shooting video of live action, the focus point changes and the video will be blurry until the camera adjusts. The point of live action will change in the frame and the camera will attempt to adjust. Example, point of focus will move from left middle to right middle but at different distances. I want the entire frame in focus regardless of where the live action happens. Image I'm shooting a baseball game, I'm behind 1st base dugout. Runner runs to 1st while other runner is moving 2nd to 3rd base. How do I keep both in focus?


Suggestions on camera settings I should use to shoot video?




For this situation, we we recommend using the AI Servo AF mode.
