I've used several different camcorder and have never really noticed any blurring on movement. To be honest, camcorder adjustments aren't my forte - hopefully someone can elaborate as to why you may be experiencing this! Maybe it's more to do with the viewfinder than the actual recorded picture - what does the captured video look like or how does it look when you view it on a tv through the AV outs. The auto-focus feature should really be able to cope with slow movements!!!
