Close focus - XA2

Does anybody know the closest you can focus with a XA2, I thought i remembered it coming with a string that you could use to set to. Maybe Im wrong there.

Cheers
Shane

Yup, that's the XA4, and this is as close as you can get to a subject:



... about one feet or so.

Thanks for your help . That will explain a few OOF shots when I took it out for the first time in years. Since a nice little camera.
