    Hi.
    Shooting a fishing show in New Zealand. Lost a 170 to Zeus and got a 250 to replace it. Now shooting with both a 170 and the 250. As we are filming action in a small trailerboat, autofocus is our best option.
    Autofocus on the 250 is a lot slower than on the 170 which is a bit of an issue for us. Seems like the 250 is using a single focus point right smack in the center of the frame where as the 170 more follows the focused object or in our case the angler around.
    Would anybody know if these cameras can be adjusted to autofocus better when shooting quick moving people close up or are they just as they are out of the box.
    Thank you..

    At least one lengthy post on autofocus exists in the 160/130 forums that may be helpful.

    It might be prudent to review that.
