    So my GF2 allows me to tap the screen and change focus point while video is recording.. in S-AF mode, I can also half press the shutter to tell it to focus on the current focus point...

    How do I do similar with the E-P3? Touch screen seems non responsive while recording video and there is no indicator box telling me what focus point is currently being used either...

    I'm guessing the e-p3 can't change focus points once recording?

    No, sadly touch-to-focus isn't available on the E-P3 while recording video. At least, that's what I've read. My E-P3 just arrived yesterday and I didn't really test out video at all.

    Today looks like a great sunny day around Toronto to put around with a camera too! If only I didn't leave it at home...
