Focus issue when blogging and blogger is walking??

I've noticed on several YouTube videos made with the Pocket 2 that when the footage shows a blogger walking and talking, the picture quality is kind of soft, especially the face of the blogger.  When the shot is static, the quality is much better (sharper).  I'll give the link to a very good example below.  Now this could have been fixed by the recent firmware update, or it could be something that needs tweaking - or it could be due to slow shutter speed in low light causing motion blur.  Am I the only one noticing this?

Hello there, thank you for reaching out and sharing this video you've found here in DJI Forum. Based on what I can see, it seems like it may be the settings of the user and the environment where the user tried to take a shot. If in case you've encountered an issue with your DJI Pocket 2, kindly provide us a sample video and firmware information for us to have better visualization and further assist you regarding the concern. Thank you for your support.

Watching the video, I think it is two things combined you mention.
It is 24P video and shutter speed... looks like 1/25. You can see the moving hand has a long trail of motion blur.

Also the focus is not pin on his face during the ealier of the video. I wonder if facetracking was on.
While he is moving he is holding the camera quite close. 40cm or so.
Pocket 2's minimum video focus distance is 20cm and I don't think it is a too close of a distance but it might need some cue for the camera to adjust a focus.

Later of the video where he rotates has pin on focus on his face. (but motion blur is still there)

Cannot judge for sure until actually using Pocket 2 but I do also see what you mean.

I have noticed a lot of focus errors too.
BUT also one youtuber (I forgot his name, he was very enthusiastic) mentioned DJI is aware of this and will be fixing it.

Perhaps "potato Jet" who was chased by swarm of bugs during his video?

His videos are very enjoyable.

I saw one blogger say he forgot to change the shutter speed in low because of this.

As with the Pocket 1, I am sure that DJI will be tweaking the focus system in firmware releases in coming months.  By the way, the guy who made the video in my original post had just borrowed the Pocket 2 from a local dealer, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was some setup error as he wouldn't have had a chance to get really familiar with the device and how to get the best from it.

Most of these first reviews are based on little experience only indeed.
But the focus issue seems like something they have to address.
It was in the IphoneDo review too (where his face was close but not sharp and the background was in focus)

And indeed, DJI will probably fix it as they seem aware of it.
