Summary: If this camera had a built in mic, built in light, and a physical button to manually focus, it would be a 5 star low budget camera for sure! I knew the mic and light lack buying it. Did not know about the method of manual focus which is more annoying.
To Manually focus, Must go to Menu, then activate Focus, just to bring up the focus feature on the screen. Then you must use your finger to tap up/down on Screen to focus. Tapping takes a bit to work right on the screen. Should be a easy physical button or scroller to do this.
