I shoot hybrid so I am not a dedicated videographer. All day long I am flicking between shooting stills, lowering that camera and popping up the second one to capture the same scene with video handheld. Sometimes, I need to do both at the same time such as: entrances, exits, confetti, vows/ring exchange/first kiss and in that case, the freestanding monopod directly in front of me comes into play so I can shoot stills while the video is doing it's own thing. Except vows/rings where I can lock focus. It's then that reliable AF is required and with the system, it mostly is OK providing the subjects are not moving too fast. I am not a dedicated videographer either for most events, but I still think even as a dedicated videographer with the S5 it is impossible especially on a gimbal. I say that because the focus peaking is so hard to see on the screen of my S5 even indoors that I would have a very hard time manually focusing on a moving object. The little dots show up so rarely and they are so hard to see that I just use one-shot AF then just try to keep the same camera to subject distance. Maybe with an external screen that does its own focus peaking and a lens with a good focus throw it could work with MF. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
