Sony A58 Video advice if possible please
on May 19, 2015 at 9:12:17 am

Hi there,

I'm using the SONY A58 for occasional video.

I have it set to detect faces on auto mode but for some reason it still randomly zooms in and out. I have heard that there may be a setting that would help resolve this.


Any advice would e greatly appreciated

Thanks


Dougie

My advice: just don't use autofocus when shooting with a DSLR (yes, I realize it's technically a mirrorless camera--the principle is the same). Autofocus on stills lenses relies on contrast detection, and is inaccurate, slow, and half the time will not focus on what you need it to. Learn to focus manually, and/or get a small follow focus rig, and you will be INFINITELY happier with the results.

This may not be the answer you're looking for, but it's the only good solution. There is no camera setting that will improve the AF performance of a stills camera enough to make it practical to use with good results.
