  1. Hi, I'm using a GH3 to video football. I'm using movie manual mode with a 45-175mm lens, Continuous AF. I notice that when I start by pressing the front shutter button, the video it is out of focus and then quickly auto focus's properly ( about 1/2 to 1 sec. or so) I'm at a loss to find out if I'm doing something wrong or if the camera is not working properly. I would expect the focus to be set as I'm not changing distances etc. I start and stop the camera alot during a game to eliminate wasted time between plays. Thank you for any help. John
  2. Hi, I'm using a GH3 with a panasonic 45-175mm lens for video on a tripod. The lens does not have an on-off switch for OIS but there is a camera menu setting to turn it off. Should I do so on a tripod?  Thanks.   John  
  3. Thanks for your help guys. So if I'm not doing any post processing due to lack of time etc. I'm pretty much looking at keeping settings at close to 0 so as to provide a good representation of the games. I wish i had more time to play around with some post processing, I'll have to wait for some other activity to do so. Thanks again.
  4. Hi first post here, I've been reviewing alot of posts here, very impressed with the amount of knowledge and help provided. I'm starting to use my GH3 for video, specifically for my boys sports. Football at the moment and I don't have time to post process due to coaches needing video asap to study etc. Anyway, I'm curious if anybody has any suggestions as to best settings so as to provide best looking video straight from camera? I'm very accomplished at still photography, used to be a professional but this video stuff is giving me a headache and I've no idea how to set camera properly.   Any help would be welcome. Thank you. John
