Wireless Camera Focus Distance

For those of you using the wireless camera that came with the EZ-B kit, what's the typical focus range are you using? im guessing about 8-10 inch for color/face tracking, but anything else further gets blurry. It sure would be nice if it has auto focus.

I always use our camera. If you focus the camera, I find it works well:)
Manual focus by turning the lense

DJ, i know about manual focus but what distance do you normally use? I can't keep adjusting because once its in Wall-E eye, i have a cover over it so I can't access the lense. If i focus something close up says 10 inch, then everything else is blurry, but if i focus further out, then something closer get blurry.
