Bug Description

camera is missing auto focus options ON/OFF

i really need to turn OFF auto focus. i can't record the screen without turning OFF the auto focus, but there is no settings...

Sample video showing the refocusing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Zdpp7mZEQs

Its a bit odd that its going out of focus at all, wonder if there is a way to improve the configuration.
