bmpcc 4K lumix 20 oscillating focus

PostThu Oct 11, 2018 6:11 pm

Hi.

Excitedly received my bmpcc 4K camera yesterday. However, when I attached my lumix 20mm, the lens just kept rapidly oscillating between the near and far focus. Then suddenly it would stop and start again. Turning on and off or the view didn’t seem to solve it. Am I missing a setting that is doing this?

This has never been a great lens on non Panasonic cameras, check to see it there is a FW upgrade for it.
Autofocus has always been problematic as far as I can remember for previous comments on tying using this lens on the AF100 and original Pocket camera.

Thanks for the info. So there isn’t a setting in the camera that will turn off autofocus? I’ll check for a firmware update.
