« on: April 20, 2012, 04:31:33 PM »
So when i take video, it looks like its in focus, and when i upload it to the computer, some clips are in focus and some aren't... is anyone else having these issues??? or is there a trick that i am missing? when i try the autofocus, it looks way out of focus, so i try to do it manually... thanks for any help

Nothing to do with your focus issue, but you should turn IS off when shooting a video  ;)
I can hear the IS noise on your video

2nd hand smoke could very well be the issue here.

Using an external monitor or z-finder helps.

Are you pulling focus with the screen on the back?  Yeah never do that, you have to have some kind of external monitor or EVF, or at least a Z-finder of some sort.
