    Hi there,

    I have a GX7 and LX100 that I use for stills and video. I'm trying to set it up to allow me to readjust focus using auto-focus (AF-S) when shooting video. When I had my Olympus cameras, it was quite easy to reset the focus automatically when recording was ongoing, but after many tries, I cannot get this functionality working on my Panasonic cameras!

    I have AF-S setup to work on the back AF/AE Lock as well as the shutter half-press. It works correctly with both cameras in AF and MF (manual switch) mode BEFORE starting recording, but as soon as I start recording, neither button will cause the camera to refocus.

    Under Motion Picture Menu I have:
    Continuous AF: On

    Under Custom:
    AF/AE Lock : AF-ON
    Shutter AF : ON
    Half Press Release : OFF
    Quick AF : OFF
    Eye Sensor AF : OFF
    Focus/Release Priority : RELEASE
    AF+MF : ON
    MF Assist : BOTH
    Constant Preview : ON

    Thanks for any help!
