Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
With the movie mode, during my video capture, the focus is suddenly changed, and become blurred, and then come back in sharp. I am moving my camera at all. This cycle will be repeated, but it is not happened all the time.
I was having the same problem... I went to the Sony support site (www.iq.sony.com) and found a solution-- (pasted below) I changed the focus setting in the movie mode to "infinity" rather than "multi AF", and now the video has stopped the focus phasing! Wahoo!
Once in movie mode (the filmstrip symbol), press the "menu" button on the back of the camera, press to the right until you find "Focus". Scroll up and set the focus to the infinity symbol and press the center button to select. pres menu to exit and strat filming!

As you pan autofocus will try to latch onto a different focal point. Check your manual or go to the Sony Tech support team
