Setting the right focus
The camera automatically sets the focus and detects faces in all capturing modes. It can also detect and track a moving object. A yellow frame indicates the face or moving object that is in focus.
One way to change the focus area is to move your camera around with the camera key half-pressed. Once the focus is set, the circular frame turns blue. This technique can be used, for example, to change the focus to a person who is at the side of a group photo.
You can also tap the screen to focus on a specific area, or set a specific focus distance. These options are only available for the main camera and depend on the capturing mode selected.
To set the focus distance
- When using the main camera, tap Mode > .
- Tap .
- Drag the slider to adjust the focus distance.
- Close the settings menu. The setting is saved.
- Press the camera key or tap the shutter button to take a photo.
This setting is only available in Manual mode for the main camera.
