WHY IS VIDEO SHOT AT 7X ZOOM SHAKY?

Video shot at 7x zoom will be shaky. This is the result of the extended focal length, which magnifies the image, reducing the performance of stabilization systems. This shake does not affect still image capture. Still image capture is recommended when zoomed in.

CAN I ADJUST FOCUS POINT DURING SHOOTING? IF YES, HOW?

Yes. Auto-focus can be used to focus on any area on the display. In auto-focus mode, tap the display to select the area of focus.
