Q6 Can Auto Focus be used during movie recording?
Continuous AF is enabled in the HD/STD mode while AF is selected as the focus mode and "On" is selected for the Optical Zoom setting. Continuous AF is not enabled when "Off" is selected for the Optical Zoom setting. You can readjust focus while recording is in progress by half pressing the shutter button, but doing so may cause noise produced by the lens operation to be picked up in the audio.
In the HS mode, Auto Focus is fixed where it is when you start recording, and it is not updated while recording is in progress.
The following shows approximate movie focus ranges.
 Full wide: 40cm to ∞
