Default Aiptek digital camcorder

I don't use this Camera very often, but when shooting Video yesterday, the Screen had a little "Flower" up in the Right Hand Corner.
On my other Cameras, that usually means a "Macro Setting.
So when I shot my Video, when I was up close the picture was clear, but if I backed away from my subject more than 3 feet it got blurry.
Is my assumption correct and if so, how do I get the settiung off of Macro?

I've been fooling with it most of the day, and can't get rid of this little Flower.

Just moved this to the hybrid/movie etc section where our experts in cameras like the Aiptek range hang out.

It will probably help if you have a model number for the so they can give you the info you need.

the camera you're referring to is which model?

the Aipteks a hd series have a switch located to the right side.

the Action hd & GVS you must use the mouse UP position will go ON/OFF macro/infinity

Steve/Mark,
Thanks you both for the information.
After reading Marks reply, I started looking for the Model Number on my camera, only to see the "little Flower" and a "Person" that has a slide switch right next to the Lens.
Then I logged on and saw Steve's reply.
;+)
Thank to the BOTH of you.
On this same subject, I just saw that Best Buy has a Newer Version of this Camera for $59.99!!!
What I like about the new version, is that all the Buttons (Video, Mode, Menu, Zoom, ect) are on the body of the Camera.
Especially when zooming, this new version has mo older version beat "hands down" at HALF the price my Wife paid for it 2 years ago, for a Christmas present!!!
;+/
