How to set the EOS-M10 15-45 zoom to infinity focus?

I would appreciate help:


My Canon EOS-M10 with a 15-45 zoom lens is part of a fixed set-up for technical photography.

I need to use manual focus only, and to keep the camera focussed at infinity all the time.


Apparently there is no hard mark on the lens or a live LCD view that indicates the focus distance.


The "obvious" way, of directing the camera at a far object or landscape and setting the focus is impractical in this case.


How can it be done?


There is a rumor that switching the camera off and on resets the focus point to infinity. Does anyone know if this is true and reliable?

Maybe M10 does not fit your criteria of a "fixed set-up for technical photography". It is aimed at very beginner level for someone who likes this size compact camera.


It is capable of using ef or ef-s lenses so perhaps your lens choice isn't the best for you situation either.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
