Camera Lens Back Focus

A tutorial on how to check if your camera lens back focus is either set correctly or you have a lens fault.  Set the iris to wide open, zoom in and focus on a object, zoom out and if the picture goes out of focus then watch this short tutorial on how to adjust the lens back focus on cameras such as the PXW, PMW, HXR and HVR cameras.  If the back focus cannot be improved it is likely you have a lens fault.
