Has anyone tried the video on the EP2? I would like to do short video clips. My first attempt was not good. The video kept going in and out of focus. I was using Single Auto Focus.

After reading Brian's set up suggestions, I changed the auto focus to auto continuous tracking, the video was much better and everything stayed in focus.

I then tried doing a rodeo parade with lots of horses. I was pretty close to the horses and the video kept going in and out of focus. Any ideas what I can do. I have the Class 6 sd card.

For something like a parade you will want to go to manual focus. Anytime you are in a situation with moving subjects up-close the AF will be more of a hinderance then a help. There is a reason why cinema cameras are all MF and hollywood pays a guy to pull focus.
