      Just purchased a JVC GY-HM170U 4k camcorder…..

      I am finding that it has a different focal range than the SOny X70 I am used to using.

      If I am any closer than say 3-4 feet from an object I cannot focus on it when I zoom in tight on the object.

      Objects beyond that distance are able to be clearly focused.

      I am used to being able to zoom in tight on an object and “rack focus” even if I am within the 3-4 feet distance….

      Any thoughts on this?
