you need to have the exposure and focus set on manual. the picture may look like it lost focus (i suspect it was just low light, blue colors). low shutter speeds to keep that iris open, but just enough to not blow-out the whites. you can only do so much in those situations plus if I remember correctly, that camera had a low lux rating of 1.5 which is good but still a challenge in dark ‘nightclub’ envirionments. Red is a very hot color and will “bleed”. As far as focus, it all depends on how your shooting. If you are shooting wide at a football game, then you would zoom in as far as you can to the area you are shooting, focus and zoom it out. If you are on field level shooting, the you will be adjusting focus all the time.
