    When I'm recording video, with the camera, it keeps zooming in/out a little.
    My theory is that it's trying to get a focus fix, but it's getting a bit annoying.
    I have a nice picture for a bit and then it jumps (maybe my hand isn't the steadiest).
    All my other phones had a fixed focus for video.
    I haven't seen a way to disable auto-focus for video.
    Any ideas on how to keep that from happening?
    I guess I could mount the phone on a tripod and ask people to not move.
    Wouldn't that be a little like taking a picture, though?

    This happens to me on my Lumia 900. It never happened to me on my Focus. Agree, it's very annoying.
