    Tomorrow I am gonna do some shooting with the Olympus 12mm and set to its hyperlocal distance. Hope this setting can solve the problems we are now facing when shooting videos.

    will post progress then.

    A technical quibble; the term "hyperfocal distance" has a very specific meaning.

    It is defined as "the distance between a camera lens and the closest object that is in focus when the lens is focused at infinity.".

    Thus, you would not "set it to its hyperfocal distance"; you would instead "set it to infinity focus", then see whether objects around the hyperfocal distance are in focus.
