CDAF During Video - Video Footage

Hi All,

Thought I would shoot some video of the CDAF in operation on the K30, DURING Video recording. The lens on the camera is my 18-135mm. Audio is being recorded on camera, and the video is shot at 24f/1080p

Often just a cut-and-paste of the Youtube video URL will work:

Interesting, this is much more snappy than my attempts with the 18-55 and 50-200 and also less intrusive sound wise.

I guess the DC motor helps with the sound, and I have found it seeks less taking photos than my old 18-55mm did on my K10D - so it may simply be that AF performance is better with this lens.

It wasn't perfect, but given most of the time you don't really want to be changing focus point during shooting with a movie (well, certainly not the kind of things I'm going to want to shoot, unless I've specifically told it I want it!), it doesn't really bother me.

Next video in the series is some footage of the camera doing PDAF tracking. That's uploading now.

PS I tried copy and pasting the youtube link and it didn't pick it up!
