K-S2 Focussing in Movie Mode

I am aware that there is no continuous autofocus in movie mode, but is there a way to refocus while recording a movie, other than by using the manual focusing ring?

Yes, i Believe that with te AF, AE-L button on the back you can do it anytime while recording video. If that doesn't work is because you need to enable it on the menu

Thanks but I can't seem to get it to work. In the Button Customization I have AF/AE-L Button (Movie) set to AF1. The AF/AE-L button focusses before you start recording but nothing happens while the recording is in progress. I have the camera set to Spot Focusing. Is there some other setting that I need to check or does the button not work while recording is in progress?

Try setting the AF/AE button to AF2. This will disengage the AF on the shutter button.

Thanks for the advice. I am able to focus now after changing that setting.
