Autofocus issue - Sony RX100VA

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm using a Sony RX100VA set to autofocus in aperture priority at f5.6, and have issues with the video going out of focus whilst the camera hunts for focus. An example can be seen in the following short 23 second clip where the camera goes in and out of focus 7 or 8 times rendering the clip next to useless. I would appreciate your insights on settings to use. Thanks

If you have a wet wide angle lens set the focus at beginning with your on something at 1 meter and then switch to manual
Also at f/5.6 the scene will be fairly dark this is only a 1” sensor you can let the camera go wider

Thanks. I'll give manual focus a try.

I'm looking to get a camera with a bigger sensor and am awaiting the GH6. I'll experiment with a wider lens then.

The manual focus only works with wet lens that shortens the focal length
Without it you will just have blur
The GH6 if it comes out next year wont be a game changer Panasonic has committed to 8K by 2022 and the Lumix G already got a significant firmware update suggesting new products are not coming too soon

Thanks. I'll have a little think. May go the way of GH5.
