I'm happy with the D7500 as a still camera, and pretty sure I can use all the various autofocus modes, points okay. Admittedly I do all my still photography through the viewfinder, not live view.
When I use video I'm so confused! Focusing never seems to work well. Not just slowly, but most of the time it does not focus (unless I use touch focus), or keep half-pressing the photo-shutter button!
I'm trying to use it as a general purpose video camera when on holiday. So i need to use settings that will work 'straight away' when I need to video something.
I don't know whether to use touch focus or not. When I don't use it, the camera often does not focus at all. I don't understand why it always focuses when I use touch focus but not when I don't use touch focus (in exactly the same test conditions)...
Should I use AF-F or AF-S in video?
And 'wide' or 'normal' or 'tracking'?
