Default My new DMCFZ300 focus issues

I just purchased a Z300 to replace my Nikon B700. If it lives up to it's specs. it will blow the B700 out of the water.

Yesterday I shot some 4k video and had an issue with focus, when I pan it would go out of focus mid way into the pan. I'm sure it setting as it is currently set to defaults and not an issue with the camera.

What setting should I look and or do you recommend for auto focus?

Also how do you fix the exposure when shooting panoramas so you don't get such drastic exposure gradients when you pass a bright object (like the sun in a sunset panoramas)?

Thanks for the help.

G'day mate

Can't help much - I have an FZ 200 but do not get into videos

Best suggestion is to get into the web site for Graham Houghton in UK ... he is the acknowledged expert on FZ cameras & videos

Hope this helps
