Hi there,

 

I want to film myself playing guitar but I am not able to get myself in focus when shooting the video. When I set the Autofocus to AFF it will not stop focusing the entire video. However, when I turn it to AFS mode I am in focus when I am standing 30cm away from the camera (which is too close) but not when I sit down on my chair and start playing guitar. Could you give me some advice on how I can fix this problem please?

 

Best regards,

godeluxe

Have a friend sit in the chair, manual focus on them then when you sit in the chair you should be in focus.
