    Hi, I'm really interested in this product. For my application, I need to focus on a subject between <1 ft and greater than 15ft. Are there more specifications I can find for this camera? Best, Aditya

      Hi Aditya, normally depending on zoom rate minimal focal distance is 5ft or more, but it can be reduced by extending camera further. I will check this later today and let you know.

      Without camera displacement from 1ft camera works from wide (x1) to mid (~x8) range. Full zoom range is covered from 3ft to infinity. With lens-camera ~6mm spacer it works well in specified distance range. We can also provide complete camera for near focus range. Lets discuss details over email.
