Adam,

I have clips that show difference in on and off, so I will post them at my site later this week, then. I thought it was effective enough but not overly effective comparing to FX1's stronger mode.


John,

I mostly had the autofocus to be less sensitive setting when it was on.
Like in the triple jump clip, the autofocus at less sensitive settind didn't quite work well. But I did not thest the sensitive setting under the same situation.
I have a clip that has continuous zooming in with fast focus and auto focus being too busy.

Kaku, a filmmaker friend of mine will be in Tokyo at TIFFCOM starting Saturday. He has an XL-H1 and is interested in seeing the A1/G1. Are you in or near Tokyo? If so, I could give you his contact information.

Hey Kaku, on the subject of focusing, how well did the "insta-focus" thingy work? I'm a little skeptical about its functioning.

Bill,

I'm right in Tokyo, Shibuya. I don't know if A1 would be out, but I could try to make a contact with Canon if he can go to Shinagawa to see it. I've done something like that before, but Canon has to feel like it is worthwhile I guess.

Jack,

I used more manual focusing, didn't have time to look into that much.
In some clips that my wife took with autofocus (I should have tried the fast focus setting which I regret), it is satisfactory, I don't think anything less than good.

I'll give him your website so he can contact you if possible. He said there will be equipment exhibitors at the show, and Canon and Sony should be there. This is the show:

Bill, right, if he is attending with his film then that would be easy. I would just find out who from Canon would be there, so your friend would get treated properly.

He works for a film distribution company in L.A. He's there representing films and/or looking for films. He doesn't have one of his own at this time.
