    You need to select manual focus if you want to pull focus while shooting video.

    I watched Gordon Langs (Cameralabs,video clip ) of the g3 focus pulling in movie mode using the touchscreen. But no mention of how it was achieved. I tried Googling focus pulling with the g3. Everybody says it does in their reviews but no one explains how it is done. Im at a loss. Help!!

    Make sure that your screen is activated for touch focus, then just touch the area that you want in focus while shooting video.

    Wow! I just set it up and it worked!
    I honestly didn't know it did this, our G3 is the main video camera since with the screen flipped out and facing forward my boy can see himself making a video.
    In movie menu I found the touch AF setting, switched it on : Sigma 30mm on the front it smoothly pulled focus from across the room to close in, absolutely brilliant.
