The rambling video autofocus mega-test
This is the part 1 of the rambling video autofocus mega-test by filmmaker Philip Bloom:
Autofocus is starting to actually really work for shooting video and this is a huge step forward for filmmakers like myself especially when shooting with larger sensors, but just how good are they? Can you trust them? In which situation do they work? My series of videos takes a dozen or so cameras and puts them through some ridiculous and some not so ridiculous real word tests.
I have been working on this since August and it has taken up a huge amount of time, a large proportion in editing as it is incredibly fiddly! My original plan was to make it one big video but it was too long. What was needed was to break it down into 3 or 4 chunks, so that is what I have done. Starting today and with a new part every week I present to you my epic autofocus in video test series!
