Is it possible to disable AF during video shot? I was trying different settings but auto-focus is continously active even when the subject is not moving or the phone is kept still. The following settings I found it will not ruin to much the video recording despite the fact that AF is still there:
Focus mode = object tracking and Metering = average
Can anybody share some tips & tricks on how to obtain a clear video shot?
Thank you

You mean that annoying "pumping" effect?

/e: I don't have a fix, but I'd like to hear about one too. It's the only thing that's left that really annoys me.

No, it's not possible if you're using stock camera app.
I think cinema FV-5 could solve the problem with it's AF-lock feature...

Does FV-5 have video stabilization?

Hello guys, does that mean that nobody has found a fix for this?
I'm also interested how to solve auto-focus issue.
