    I volunteer to video a karate instructor on demonstrating various weapons. I'm having trouble video recording with my 5Dm3. It doesn't focus automatically in video mode. My 70D does. Is it because my 70D has dual pixel?

    I see no question that you have not answered in your original post. If it is a stationary form then you can focus first and record. If the form has movement, then you will want the autofocus.

    You might want to consider the difference between a straight-on camera position or an angle (say around 45 degrees). You might want to record multiple performances and cut them together since different moves will show better from different angles.
