"Really Annoying Auto-Fous"1.0 starson by jmagaro88
Pros: Solid video quality
Really sleek design
Cons: AUTOFOCUS NIGHTMARE
Summary: I bought this camera to do some video blogging. I wanted to get a Flip but saw this one and noticed that you could do 1080p video. Reviews looked decent so it was a no brainer. The initial short videos I made were fine but when I sat down to actually do a little vlogging, I couldn't get the thing to stop focusing in and out. It was on a table that was not moving and I was standing right in front of it talking and moving my hands a little bit, but it couldn't decide whether to focus on me or the wall behind me. When I looked at the video on my computer full screen, It was just unwatchable -- a couple of seconds crystal clear and then blurry a few seconds later and then back again. I felt like I was looking through the eyes of someone who's head was bobbing back and forth, like Quagmire-vision or something. I tried a number of different locations and even tried doing some additional backlighting, but I couldn't get the thing to stop focusing in and out. I really wanted to like this thing, but if you can't make watchable videos, what's the point. Needless to say, this thing is going back and I'm getting a Flip, which doesn't seem to have these problems.
