I'm having a recurring problem shooting with my canon XM1. Having manually focussed the camera in the usual way ie: zoom in and manually focus, then zoom out, I am finding that whilst vertical lines in the frame are sharp, horizontal lines eg: window frames appear to be 'soft '. I have also found that having imported the footage into iMovie this also affects people, thus rendering them 'soft' as well. I know I'm doing everything as it should be and haven't encountered this problem on any other camera to this extent.
Any input on this would be very gratefully appreciated.
