Keeping Everything In Focus
Hello, I am new here. I am having trouble keeping my lumix g7 in focus when doing pan shots of simple scenery. For example, I wanted to end my shot of an abandoned home after panning from the left, but it kept going in and out of focus all the way through. In contrast, my phantom 3 professional drone always keeps everything in focus so I was tempted to just get it out and hold it while taking video. But I want to understand how to make clear shots of video without it going in and out of focus. Should I start my shot, focus, and then set the lens to manual? Or will anything close or far away stay out of focus? Thank you for your help.
