Good and Informative talk, mediocre camera work

I thought the orator was well-spoken, informative, and interesting. The wide angle shot that was meant to allow us to see the PowerPoint and the speaker was annoying as it made the slides hard to read. The auto focus was left enabled on the camera causing the slides to come in and out of focus which I found distracting.
