SX60 focus shifts during video

Even when in even, good lighting with a fairly static interview subject, the SX60 focus will shift in and out. The facial recognition rectangle stays on the face, but the final product shows focus shifting repeatedly. It is set on auto focus and used with a tripod. Any clues as to why this happens and what can be done? Thanks.

Do not rely on AF, it will hunt during videoing. Set camera to MF and be done.
