Hi Erik: The DVX-100a has an auto-focus feature, and it does work. However, the response time for auto-focus is typically slower when a cam is in 24p mode compared to interlaced (60i/50i) mode. As expected, with 24p there is less data per second for the auto-focus to work with, so it's slower.

You may get better results focussing manually, depending on circumstances. Shoot some tests to see what's most appropriate.
