I just recently bought an A7ii (switched from a dslr). I have set my focus mode on AF-C but I'm having trouble on figuring out how to change the AF Point/area while on video mode: it is always fixed on the center. What if my subject is on the left/right of the frame (which is 80% of the time).
I tried setting the Focus Area on "Flexible Spot" and the Focus point on either sides but it continues to focus just on the center ignoring my AF area settings. I tried pushing down the focus button (Shutter half press or back focus) which actually makes the camera to focus on my chosen focus point but it just locks on it like it's on AF-S and as soon as I release it, the camera returns on focusing on the center.
In other words I would simply like to fix my focus area (while on AF-C) on either the left or right of the frame.
Can anybody please help me.
P.S. I'ts my first Sony camera so please be patient with me
