    The maximum distance you can focus is infinity. If you're asking about the minimum focus distance, it's 8.2 feet in all modes except iAuto (then it's 0.16 feet).

    That image looks more like it is an issue on how you are attaining focus. The camera looks like it is set to focus on the closest item, in this case the closest is the base of the palm frond and not the parrot.

    You can probably select a focus point. Use one of the custom buttons and set that for selecting the Focus Mode of the camera. That can make it easier to be in a focus mode that is best for the subject.

    You need to focus on a subject like the parrot using Center AF and the Lock function to hold that focus point - recompose - take picture. Or use the Flexible Spot AF and move the focus point over your subject and take the picture. If you shoot in Multi AF then you should see a green box around what is in focus when you push the shutter button half-way.

    The only note I see regarding close focus at the telephoto end of the zoom range is 1.20 meters. I would put the camera in manual focus and just see how close it will focus.

    Espero que tiene el manual del usuario. En caso que no, aquí es el version en ingles - ver paginas 56 a 61...

    You need to have a shutter remote and a tripod for a shot like this. Even then, it may not come out with clarity. Once you get into that digital zoom focal length
    (DIGITAL ZOOM (STILL IMAGE)Up to 120x)
    , all bets are off. You have to stabilize the camera, turn off image stabilization. I bet the hand shake icon came on. it also appears the focus point missed the bird and hit the branches to the left.

    It looks like you missed focus on the bird in your image, but it's also important to remember that most zoom lenses are not at their sharpest at the extreme ends of their zoom range. Even if you get the focus perfect, the image still may not be sharp enough for your liking.

    Have you tried a tripod, remote shutter, and stabilization off?
