I shoot with a Canon XA10 prosumer camera and want to wean myself from relying on autofocus when shooting moving subjects. Are there some tips or tricks to improve my manual focus capabilities ... or perhaps a way to better utilize the autofocus so that when my subject's in the left or right third of my frame, the camera's not focusing on the background? Thank you.

This is a fully functional unit with 80G hard drive, good for 6 hours of continuous recording. Package includes the FS-4 ProHD, battery, AC adapter/charger and camcorder mount. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for pics or with any questions. $385.
I've got a very lightly used Focus FS-5 DTE recorder that has recently gone bad on me. Focus wants a flat $395 + shipping both ways to repair it. This probably wouldn't be an issue, except that this is the second time the unit has needed repair. At that time it was ONLY $195.
So now I'm faced with the question of whether to repair the thing and take a chance that it'll give me better service or just scrub it and get something more reliable. Are these things just prone to failure or did I get a lemon?
im presently using the canon 5d however im having problems bringing everything into focus at once in video mode. i adjust the aperture from 5.6 to 16 to 20 and it still produces a shallow depth of field .does anyone know how to overcome this issue. it seem as if the aperture has no affect on the D.O.F in video mode.
Yes, I'm a newbie! I have a Canon Vixia HF10 camera that I've shot a ton of home video with and edited in Premiere. So far, so good.
I have a friend that is an Elvis tribute artist and I tried filming his show a few weeks ago at a club. I had some problems! I've watched a ton of tutorials on how to set up the camera, but I'm still a bit confused! I have a few questions...
I shot anediteda music video using a 35mm adapter for the first time.
Here are just a few observations.
the upside down image from the adapter is a pain in the butt.
You have to get used to it real quick or buy a monitor that can flip the image.
If you're shooting outside it will have to be portable with a battery pack.
i also found out that focusing thru the adapter is a whole new ball game. you'll have to pay very close attention to focus and really take your time.
No more letting the cameras autofocus do it all for you.
