    Hey guys!

    Several days ago I found out that my OSMO lost focus. At the moment there is only DOF for 0.1m-1m in focus, all objects far then 1m from camera not in focus anymore.

    I checked out all the menu, a lot of instructions, reset default settings, nothing works.

    Checked my old videos - there was infinity focus.

    So, I've got 2 questions:
    1) How could it happened?
    2) What should I do to fix it?

    Thx for ur help!

    Did it receive a shock? It can only be caused by mechanical damage/misalignment.

    I suppose, but don't remember that moment anyway.

    Should I disassemble the camera head to fix it?

    Either the chip or the lens moved. Is it consistent focus across the screen and fairly sharp? If so, you could sell it as a specially modified X3 for closeup work. It might be quite useful. In all seriousness, the lens is probably loose and it's probably glued in place. If you can send it back, I would do that as just the slightest shift in the lens can have a pretty big impact on focus and resolution and it will probably be hard to reset perfectly.
