HMC 40 focus and kids running around

I'm going to be taping little children exploring the woods at a farm house. I'm a little worried about being in focus. My current plan is to use my homemade steady-cam rig and just try to stay up with them:)

Since I will not be able to check my focus and I'm not a fan of auto focus...what are my best options? Is there an f-stop I should keep it on, should I just use auto focus, or are there another options?

It will, obviously, be outside and the sun will make it hard to use the viewfinder.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Mike

The focus on the HMC40 is good!! No issues at all so flip the camera onto full auto and simply enjoy yourself!! I use my HMC82's on stedicam at weddings in full auto with no issues at all!!
