jake_sUnfortunately the GH5 is notoriously bad at auto focusing. Your best bet is the set to manual and do not by hand. Not really a good zoom camera. Throw a fisheye and call it good!
mikemackind of wild that a camera of this quality would miss such an important feature.
I feel like it’s so highly recommended for action sports videography, how do people manage the autofocus challenges?
mikemacand I should add, it seems to work totally fine for video, but always messes up when shooting stills
eheathalso side note for the gh5, this camera is certainly leaning towards the video side of things, as jake said its autofocus system isn't great in the first place.
Other cameras like nikon, canon and sony will have much better autofocus for stills, but I would still not recommend using autofocus for video.
