Problem with distance meter AG AD160A

Sorry... AG AC160A

I would appreciate assistance with tthe following

My 3 year warranty runs out and I have a possible issue that may need sending in the camera

The problem is with the distance meter (non-linear overstatement of actual distance)

If anyone has the time, please run a test so I can have a baseline for getting warranty service

================================================== =====================

Here below is a comparison of measured distances to an object (black and white bulls-eye) compared to the distance reported by the camera.

Conclusion: My camera overstates distance by as much as 5 meters, the variance is non-linear.


Camera _ Actual _ Diff
25 m _ 25 m _ 0
23 m _ 21 m _ +2
21 m _ 17 m _ +4
18 m _ 13 m _ +5
12 m _ 09 m _ +3
5.8 m _ 05 m _ +1

test conditions:
red focus assist
daylight wb
Z86 (full zoom)
Iris 4.8
ND 1/4
0 db
spot meter ON
measurement device: surveyor's 200 ft tape measure
