focussing ring on vixia hf g50

Just bought my new Vixia HF G50 and am finding the focussing ring takes a lot of turns to make even the smallest difference in focussing. I've got it set on manual with the toggle switch on Focus instead of Zoom. According to the manual it should just work and it does but it's so  slow and unresponsive that I'll never use it.


Am I doing something wrong?

Hi there,


I believe with this camera the focus will move further if the ring is turned faster, but you can also adjust the response/sensitivity of the focus ring in your menu under the [Focus Ring Response] setting in your menu. Check out pages 54 and 55 of the user guide below for a little more on that.
