Dear Forum, I film with the 900 always with automat. Auto Focus. I just can not operate the manual focus, because I miss the precision of a mechanical focus ring.
Recently I had a shoot in a church with a relatively low light conditions. Oh Schreck, just key scenes were blurred, the blur, I have not noticed the display. My thought and question: Should I always go to "manual" button, and to focus only on change of the distance by car PUSH? Do you have any other better tips about manual focus?

I'm doing it hard with my TRV900, it sharp manual, because neither LCD nor-viewfinder display allowing a professional assessment of severity. Since the tactile qualities of the Focus ring are almost incidental.
If I can, I take with a control monitor (15 "CRT), which is quite possible, especially in theater recordings. Heading the equipment needs to be naturally flexible. The lighting conditions are good and the problem behavior (ie no detailed building facades or persons with pinstriped suits), Then I let the autofocus to do his service. He can do very well.
For critical motifs or poor lighting, I turn to you of exactly the way described: The autofocus is switched off and is used only for Motivwechseln. Let me zoom in on an image area, the focus is definitely the camcorder, press the push-button car for a brief moment and then again select the desired setting. Then I start the recording.
