    that's just the camera trying to keep focus. Is there a way to switch to manual focus during recording? Once you were locked on, switching to manual would have kept the focus where it was. Even if people move back slightly into and out of the focal plane, it's not as distracting as having the whole picture adjust whole the camera racks through the focal range.

    Did you have face detection on? Did you use C-AF+TR?

    My G3 and Oly XZ-1 do that also. The only way to be sure is go manual.
