I video student jumps, freefly, belly formations, different miscellaneous fun jumps, etc. Focus has never been an issue. Perhaps newer technology isn't a factor in this case. I don't know. Frankly it really doesn't matter and I don't much care. I'm not going to change the way I do things and I don't expect anyone else to change the way they do things. But my own experience is proof enough to me that at least in some cases this reliance on manual focus is somewhat misplaced and newer camera flyers should understand that sometimes there are more ways to do things than simply what everyone's always done because that's the way it's always been done.
You sound like an amateur. Only an overweight Dad of 3 at Disneyland would use auto focus. Fag.
Wow. You come chiming in like a bumbling buffoon over a year after the discussion sounding like both an amateur and a knuckle-dragger. But you are a tough keyboard warrior with your slurs and hate speech, so I'm properly intimidated. /s
