Admittedly a new DSLR user (but not video), I have two questions:
1. I have a 50 mm 1.8 lens on the D7000, I am in AF-C mode and I am in Live View trying to make a video. The green focus square appears when I first get focus, but as I move the camera around to pan on different things at different distances from the camera, the green square stays on screen but the focus is definitely (and completely) lost - the object in the middle of the green square is out of focus, and there does not appear to be any updating by the camera of the lens to maintain focus (it;s like I had the AF-L button down, which I don't). Is this the normal behavior?
2. When I switch to manual focus, the green focus square does not ever appear - the object in the center of the square is in perfect focus to my eye, but the square stays red. Any thoughts on that one?

Thanks for the advice.
Best.
Dennis
