EX1r Back Focus issue

I am unable to access the set up menu to adjust the back focus by pressing the Cancel + Jog Wheel then + the Menu button on the rear of the camera as I did on the EX1, this is contrary to what I expect from reading eariler posts on this forum. Am I doing something wrong or is there another approach?

On the EX1R you must do the following:

LCD must be in the closed position
LCD B. Backlight switch (under top handle) must be in the OFF position
Gain switch has to be set to H

Then

Press and hold Cancel + Jog Wheel, then + Menu

Thanks Alister, I knew there must be something else, somewhere to press!

Cheers,

This post may not belong in this forum, however, since you know about the EX1R back focus adjustment....

Does the HXR-nx5 cam have a back focus adjustment? An adjustment that can be accomplished by the operator?

Thanks.
