Lumia Icon :: Sound While Camera Auto Focusing?

Jul 22, 2015

I just purchased a Lumia Icon recently and on going through and testing out various functions, I noticed that the video recording has an odd noise whenever the camera autofocuses.

The device is up to date on everything, Windows 8.1 and Lumia Denim with the latest camera app.

Here is a sample of it (close range, but it does the same noise when focusing on anything )

Right near the end I switched it to manual focus (the "jump" in focus you see and possibly the sound when that happens), but then switched it back to auto which is the noise starting again.

This happens in both surround sound mode and not.

I'm just wondering if this is normal or not. All the sample videos I have looked for either have someone talking or music playing over the video audio itself, or else what is being recorded is noisy enough to possibly hide the autofocus noise if it exists.

Galaxy S6 :: Camera Auto Focusing

May 11, 2015

Just got my phone replaced because the screen was sometimes unresponsive when layed flat on a surface. Now I got a problem with the rear facing camera. When I open the camera app the auto focus doesn't always work. As result I get very blurry photo's...

Made a short video to show you guys the problem:

This could be a hardware or software problem. I performed a hard reset and reboot but the problem still occurs from time to time.

I didnt drop my phone and I removed the plastic of the camera lens and led flash, so that cant be the problem.

Xperia Z5 :: Camera Lost Auto Focusing

Mar 25, 2015

Suddenly my camera lost auto focusing. Marco icon will appear no matter where you try to focus, and it hangs (looks like waiting AF to complete) if you actually take a picture. Then CPU goes to 100% as you can feel the back is burning up.

Lumia 1520 :: Is Camera Focusing Properly

Sep 2, 2014

Just come back to my 1520 yesterday and updated it to Cyan 8.1 which means the current version of Nokia Camera, however, Ive noticed that the focus ring, which normally flashes as its focusing when you depress the camera button half way, sometimes just appears on-screen and no longer looks as if its focusing, but as if its already focussed and ready to take the shot. I have to close Nokia camera and re-open it again so it focusses, but any shots after the `st one.. the focus ring is just solid.

The Windows Camera still focuses as does ProShot.. however, I want to use Living Images in storyteller.Does this have anything to do with this "Burst Shot" thats supposed to be in the camera.

Lumia 1020 :: Camera Stopped Focusing Closeup?

Nov 3, 2015

I have had my phone for over a year, specifically chosen for the camera. The camera has recently stopped focusing on closeup shots, like taking a picture of a check for mobile deposits. It does this on manual and auto focus. It used to take perfect pictures. I have even done a factory reset on the phone to no avail.

Lumia Icon :: Can Set Up Auto-reply To Texts

Sep 14, 2015

I've decided that I'll use a local SIM card when I get there, but I was wondering about what happens to the texts and phone calls that my US SIM card will receive while I'm away. Is there a way to set up an "auto reply" message to incoming texts that lets them know they won't be getting a response any time soon?

For my voicemail, I use ISeeVM, and don't know how to change my greeting there either--I tried, but it wouldn't let me preview, and I didn't want to save if it didn't actually record anything, so I just canceled out of it. I have the free version, so maybe I can't even record a new VM message anyway?

Question about photos taken with bright objects. Whenever I take a photo which has bright lights it ruins the whole photo. I tap in different areas to try refocus but makes no difference. Even at times part of the picture goes really dark.

Just loaded 2.2.2 onto my Singapore region Defy. The OS upgrades are fantastic! My default camera now has a repositionable focus box!

Lumia Icon :: Auto Sync Pictures To Desktop

Feb 23, 2014

I just got my Icon yesterday and it is my first WP so it is taking some getting used to, coming from Android.

My main question at this point is the ability to automatically sync pictures to my desktop. My last phone was a Motorola Razr Maxx which automatically downloaded all photos I took to my desktop as soon as it connected to my wifi. Is there an option similar with the WP8? I have Google Drive and just set up One Drive but I would rather have it hit my wifi to copy files down locally. I know I can do it manually but I like not having to worry about it.

Lumia Icon :: Sky / OneDrive Video Auto-upload

Feb 25, 2014

I have my Skydrive / Onedrive storage settings set up (in Settings/Photos + Camera/Auto upload/Skydrive - turned on, and best quality (needs wifi) set for both photos and videos.

For some reason, videos are not uploading, even when i'm connected to WIFI. Is there a max file size for uploading? If I go into Pocket File Manager, I can copy/paste a video file into my Skydrive folder, but this doesn't seem to be the best way to do this. The files should auto-upload based on the settings Ive selected.

Also - If I delete my low res photos from within pocket file manager (not DNG, the 16mp jpg files), will they delete from my photos app?

Lumia 1020 :: Camera Opening And Closing Sound

Feb 2, 2014

Got a new Lumia 1020 on Jan 25, 2014.I hear a sound when I open the camera. Also when I press the back button to exit the camera app, when the lens closes, there is a sound.Is it normal with all other 1020 phones?

Also a gentle tap on the back of the phone near the camera hump, and I can hear the some mechanical sound.Does the camera rest on small ball bearings? Is this the sound of those bearings?

I travel to and fro my company by bus. The bus usually travels at 60kmph on an average. So due to road patches and connections, etc vibrations travel to the passenger.Does this constant travelling in the bus have any kind of damaging effect on the ball bearing system. Will the springs and vibration dampening capacity of the lens reduce over a period of time?

Lumia 1020 :: Why Does Camera On Phone Have A Chirp Sound

Mar 5, 2015

There is a sound like a "chirp"of a bird during capturing images, the moment the shutter closes. This sound is apart from the "click"sound. And the chirp sounds again after capturing during reopening of the camera after capture.

I am thinking this will be a future squeak sound. but nothing affects the focusing on video and on photos.

Lumia Icon :: Why Does Computer See Phone As A Camera

May 20, 2015

I have an older Dell computer with Windows XP. Professional SP3. When I plug my Lumia Icon into the computer it recognizes it as a camera. I would like to plug the phone into the computer to put music on the phone, how can I get the computer to see it as a phone, or storage device rather than a camera? I have an older Android phone that I can plug in and have it recognize as a phone/storage device.
