I used the cord on the XA4 to get the correct distance for a “macro” shot – about .3 m or 12 inches. I’ve loaded up the camera to slip into my bag I take to work – it’s a small camera, easy to carry, protected by the clam shell case. I have a feeling it’s going to be carry-around-in-the-pocket type camera as it has no lens covers needing replacing should they fall off, etc. Ya know, I do have a little case lying around for my other little cameras which would prevent that problem. Now, if I could only find my missing Werra . . .
