LX7 - newbie question - 1.6ft to infinity
Jan 25, 2013

Hi guys, newbie here. I'm new to photography and I'm interested in learning the basics of it. I got an LX7 and I'm trying to teach myself manual mode, learning about aperture, shutter and ISO etc.

Anyways, straight to my question... I was wondering what is 1.6ft. to infinity means when I try to focus on a subject. It flashes that on the LCD screen and in red color - looks like a warning to me. I can still try to capture the scene but I'm just curious what it means. Sometimes it shows up when I'm too close, or sometimes it shows up when I'm focusing on a scenery or sometimes randomly. All I know that green color means it's focused.

Tried to look for it on the manual but I can't find what it means or even on google. Care to explain what it means? thanks!
