I suppose you think the answer to this question is obvious but it is not. I will tell you the reason for my question.
My equipment: Sony alpha 6500 + Zeiss 16-70 f / 4.
I usually shoot with the hyperfocal distance in mind.
Working with a RAW file on my On1PR2001 I checked for an unwanted blur and to make sure it had not been an error in choosing the focus distance, I went to the Exif data that the program shows in the Info section of the Browse module, I expected 20 m more or less and to my amazement the program indicated "Focus Distance 1.98 m"?
I checked with different lenses, fixed, zoom in their different focal points and with two different bodies and in all cases the data is incoherent and far from reality.
How does the program calculate this data? And what is this “Focus Distance” data for?
Is it a program error or am I misinterpreting the data?
