Xperia Pro/Neo/V/L :: Set Camera Focus To A Hyperfocal Mode?

Jul 9, 2012

According to the Android Documentation, Camera.Parameters, the FOCUS_MODE_FIXED should usually set the camera focus to a hyperfocal mode, which should cover most of the focusable area. Testing with it however reveals that on my Xperia Neo, it is equal to FOCUS_MODE_INFINITE, which means that not a lot besides the sky and far-far away buildings are in focusable area.

Testing with a simple scene with different distances, it seems that in infinite setting, even stuff at some 30 meters (haven't measured exactly, but it's far away under cealing) is unfocused.

Sample pictures taken rapidly after each other (auto and fixed even at the same second): [URL]

Is there still a way to get it into proper hyperfocal setting?

The reason I'm asking this is to be able to put the camera into car and have it stay at a fixed focus, since vibrations of the car distract the continuous autofocus.

Lumia 1020 :: OIS Doesn't Work During Manual Focus In Camera Mode

Apr 11, 2014

In Nokia Camera,

1) In Camera Mode:----

OIS works with Auto Focus
OIS works when we manually set focus to infinity

But OIS doesn't work when Focus is on Manual.

However In Video mode,

OIS works in all 3 cases, i.e. OIS works whether focus is Auto or to infinity or Focus is Manual.

Let us request Nokia to look into this matter and release an update to Nokia Camera app to fix this issue.

Nokia Nseries :: N82 - Camera Auto Focus Working Properly Only In Macro Mode

Dec 5, 2011

My N82 while taking pictures focuses properly in macro mode. (Green rectangular box). Other than macro mode I can see only red rectangular box (indicating improper focus?) and the photo seems to be blurred. Macro mode photos seems to be good. Even if I put camera settings to 'Auto' I am getting red rectangular box most of the times instead of green. Software or hardware fault?

Lumia 1020 :: Camera Auto Focus - Screen Image Would Not Come Into Focus

Oct 25, 2014

For some reason today when i opened up my camera to take a few shots it had problem auto focusing on items close to me, as you know when you tap the screen to focus on a point in the screen you get the circle and a small beep to let you know it's focusing ok, it seemed to have problems getting to this point and there was an audible high pitched buzzing or clicking sound coming from the lens itself and the screen image would not come into focus

the phone has not been dropped or roughly handled so i am 100% sure it's not an issue caused by being knocked, i have tried a reset and a reboot but the issue still remains, also i have done no recent updates and there are none showing so that's not the issue either

IPhone 5 :: Rear Camera Continually Moves From Focus To Out-of-focus

Aug 26, 2014

When trying to FaceTime with my iPhone 5, the rear camera continually moves from focus to out-of-focus. I'm FaceTiming with absolutely mad because the picture moves from blurry to clear almost constantly.

I had to replace my first iPhone 5 after only 15 months because the rear camera couldn't auto-focus anymore (a well-documented problem), and I had to pay for a replacement phone. Now after only 5 months with the replacement iPhone 5 I received from Apple it seems like I'm having more issues with the rear camera.

Xperia Z5 :: Camera Button Will Focus But Not Take Picture

Sep 6, 2012

only got the phone a week or so ago. Just goes to show how often I do use the camera button. Although I might not use it all the time, I would still like the button to work. Especially if I want to take pictures on the rain or underwater.

So basically the camera button does not take the picture but it does focus. Also camera does not open when you press the button.

Xperia Z3 :: Auto Focus On Main Camera Isn't Working

Mar 31, 2015

I just got a new Z3, and the auto focus on the main camera isn't working. I can hear a click when I open the app, or when I switch from the front camera to the rear one - is that a normal sound? I changed the camera settings, cleared the app data, tried using Google Camera, and even reset the phone. Is there anything else I should try? Is my camera defective?

Xperia Z2 :: Camera Video - Continuous Auto Focus Is Really Annoying

Jun 9, 2014

My main idea of purchasing Xperia Z2 was the 4K video facility. It attracted me a lot..but once i started using it...quality is just acceptable and the continuous auto focus is really annoying...even when nothing moves in the frame the camera just make it focus again and again...this makes some worst videos after all.

Xperia Z3 :: Photos Taken With Main Camera Lack Color Saturation And Focus

Galaxy S6 :: Selective Focus Mode?

Jul 17, 2015

I've been messing around with Selective Focus Mode while taking pictures. It gives very interesting results but I've had two issues:

1) I understand that taking pictures under this mode fails often and the camera can only take a normal picture (usually close focus). However, often times I am able to get the near and far zoom parts of the picture but the pan zoom option in the gallery won't light up and is not functional. Is this normal? If so, is it because it just can't stitch together the two focal points in a decent manner?

2) I downloaded a Selective Focus Picture in order to upload to the picture thread on these boards. However, when I click on it, the near zoom is all I see. Do I have to individually save each zoom in the gallery to view elsewhere. Androidcentral would just hang when I tried to download the original file.

HTC One M7 :: Phone Camera Constantly Out Of Focus

Aug 15, 2013

I got my HTC One about 3-4 weeks back from vodafone and everything worked perfectly, then about a week ago my camera started going out of focus and i cannot get a single picture in focus. The other problem I have is I accidentally dropped my phone, this was like a day after I figured out about the camera, and it's got the tiniest crack at the top of the screen. It's pretty much invisible unless you put the phone under a bright light and look for it, it doesn't bother me because it doesn't effect the screen and I cant even tell, however the people in the vodafone told me it voided my warranty.

Galaxy S6 :: How To Get Samsung Camera To Focus

The camera will not focus at all on the back. Selfie camera works great right away. After about a minute with the back camera, it will finally focus and work great. All films have been removed from the exterior lens of the camera, so I know this isnt the problem. Camera is on auto focus, too.

Galaxy S5 :: How To Get Phone Camera To Focus

Jan 22, 2015

The camera in my new Galaxy S5 will not focus. A fix for this which I've seen several places on the web is: "You have to clear the camera app cache if you want from your camera app to take good quality photos and to focus correctly. To do this go to Settings > Application Manager > All Apps and then find the Camera app. Click on it and clear cache. This is like a factory reset for your camera." However, When I go to Settings > Applications > Application Manager (I must take the extra middle step to get there; perhaps my phone is a later model), I do not see anything called All Apps and cannot find the camera app there.

The camera is really no good if all the pictures are out of focus.

Motorola Droid X :: Camera Will Not Focus

Jan 3, 2012

Back in August 2011, shortly after an OTA Update, I noticed the focus function was no longer working.Sometime around October, I finally was fed up enough that I tried to do something about the problem. Unfortunately, my warranty had expired in Sept. Verizon Tech Support suggested a factory reset, so I did this.With no apps installed, I first tested the camera, and the focus still did not work. I reloaded all my apps and set up the phone, and, of course, this made no difference. At this point, I gave up and assumed this functionality had failed.

In November, I realized that the focus feature had begun working again. The only thing I'm aware of having happened is that the phone fell off of a coffee table onto the floor the day before. The phone was in a case and the table was about 18" high. I am sure that I did not load or unload any apps during that time. I may have recieved an update to an app, but since the focus did not work after factory reset, I doubt this to be a factor.The focus feature has been working up until today! I used the focus on NYE and all was well. No changes from then to when I discovered focus to be dead again.Here's a list of what I've done after the 2nd failure of focus:Shut down/battery pull Uninstall Shop Savy (uses camera), shut down/battery pull Install Vignette Demo to see if that app could access the focus. Nope.Uninstall Vignette Demo, shut down/battery pull Clear Data for Camera App under App Management, shut down/battery pull Force Close, then clear data for Camera app, shut down/battery pull.Lighting, ambient temperature, with/without case, inside, outside, upside down (j/k) doesn't seem to help.Can one of the Motorola guys (or anyone who knows for sure) tell me how the focus works? Is it a mechancial thing or is it all digitial? My theory is that either something mechanical is stuck or some sort of electrical connection has lost continuity.
