First of all, Panasonic's AF-C works best with contrasty subjects, and the woman wearing the white coat at the beginning of the video, and Kai's nutty hat are easy pickings for the camera's AF system. When I did my own tests of the GH4 with the Zhiyun Crane, when circling the subject, the three year-old camera had no problem maintaining focus, even with a longer focal length, if the subject had so much as a spot of sunshine in her hair. it also worked well if the subject was wearing a black and white blouse, jewelry or sunglasses. Then, we're talking about wide angle in these shots, so the focus won't be so critical. Lastly, this video has been edited (it's 2-1/2 minutes long), and I'm not accusing anyone of anything, but just like reviews we are always complaining about that bury the bad stuff in a couple sentences among heaps of praise, these results can hardly be called conclusive. God, you're right, I didn't even realised about the hat, but the bit at the beginning with the hands and the heads wasn't that bad either. I'm sure it will be better, maybe not at dual pixel level. One thing I did see is no focus hunting back and forth, so there's still hope. Does anybody know if the AF gets affected by the V-Log stuff? With the possibility of adding a LUT maybe we can apply a contrasty one and help it a little bit, or at least in manual focus mode.
