      Oh my god, I wrote my last comment before finishing your video. Actually, the mistake I was making is that my setting was on auto focus single servo. As you suggested manual pin point focussing on the display reduced focus hunting also though not completely.

      Phase detection auto focus does not necessarily mean no focus hunting. My d3300 has phase detection auto focus but the way it hunts focus while racking can be embarassingly unprofessional. It's just like my g85. I guess only sony has mastered seamless focussing but their cameras are way too costly.

      Even in this video, which is about how it's 'fixed,' you can see it hunting all the time. Just look at the box in the bottom right. It's constantly going in and out of focus. I hate to say it, but that's a deal breaker for me.

      does the G95 has the same issue?

    • eltouristoduo

      What mic were you using for the outdoor video? Was it plugged direct into camera? Or was that internal mic? Thanks !

    • eltouristoduo

      great video. And you can still see the hunting here, it's not bad, but still a minor issue. Panasonic should care. Quite a few potential customers do.

    • Renato Pimp├úo

      Great video. The best way to fix the autofocus is to use manualfocus. Genius. -.-

    • Larry Larry

      What about shooting a group of people moving around indoor?

    • Bumdog Torres

      THANK YOU! Been looking at different videos for the last couple of hours trying to figure this out!

    • aoFeliX

      Still doing it all over this video. I wish I could sell mine to someone.

    • Justice Moody

      Be fine shooting vid using MF on a Tripod tho right ?

    • Dave King

      For G85 vlogging style video shoot in 1080p AFC Tracking Focus Mode and it will work pretty well for you. Tap to focus and record.

      Its still super blurry and hunting bro, i have the same camera and i hate it every bit, you need to set it to manual focus and its just garbage for many setups. i want to sell it.

    • Gordon Armstrong

      Very nice explanation and solution. I have been looking at this camera for some time and needed that to help make a confident purchase.

      Awesome video! My wife and I are considering buying the Panasonic G85 because of the price and in body image stabilization. Now that you've shown us how to fix the autofocus issue, we are more inclined to buy it instead of the Canon M50 for blogging and creating content. Thanks for sharing!
