Keeps re-focusing in video mode

\015 Hi all\015\012I wonder if you can help. When taking video the auto fucus keeps changing even if you are focused on a still object.\015\012\015\012Thanks for your help\015\012\015\012Graham.\015

Hi Graham,

this is quite normal, I have just tried that with my camera. Unless I do not move my camera at all, it is quite okay ( I was filming my parrots in a cage ) but if you move it, it needs to focus. It just is not made for serious filming, just occasional short movies. IF you think yours is too bad, make a short movie load it into youtobe and let me know. I will then try to see wether it is not ok.

When I use Video mode, the audio has a clicking sound that is audible in the video file. I believe it is the sound of the auto focus. The camera did not always make this sound. I have tried to have it repaired by Sony. they said the camera is supposed to be that ay. I know that is not the case since I have sample that I made without the audio glitch before the audio glistch started. Now it always happens. Is there any solution? Can anyone repair this?


The solution here is repair the autofocus sensor inside as that is a confirm on your findings that clicking in the sound is the autofocus making audible noises in the micro phone. What you need to do as I hate to say it is bring it to a local camera ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D 3100 just new, and in video mode, the auto focus doesn't work!, i've tried to film in different light conditions, inside, outside, and the permanent focusing doesn't work.


This is to be expected. The D3100 does not autofocus in video mode. You can change the focus manually while filming but the camera won't do it for you.\012\012\012Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is. ... Digital Cameras

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg
