The first picture took me at least 5 times to get it. I don't understand why this is happening because even my HTC Desire HD which actually had a good camera when it came out can still focus with no problem. When ever i take a picture their is always a preview that is perfect, but it never turns out to be the actual picture. I am guessing this is software. I also can't seem to get the Video to have a continuous focus. I use a car mount in the car and just record when ever i travel to capture anything really. When i used my Desire Hd it really has no problem to focus a head, But with the 920 if i use continuous focus it never focuses on the right spot and if i disable it then the video doesn't get a whole lot of detail. Thoughts??

Yeah I noticed this problem, it most likely is a software side issue. I'm guessing the focus points and the algorithm involved needs to be tweaked. I just touch the screen to make sure it focuses correctly. A large part probably has to do with the larger depth of field because of the larger sensor has and it is using the same software that cell phones have been using and it needs a better one. This is just a guess.

You are correct in stating that the HTC Desire HD/Inspire camera focuses better. It also produces markedly sharper photos as well. On the other side, the Lumia is much better in low light, has more accurate color and shoots much better video/audio... It's a trade off...

A large f stop (small aperture) of say f11 will have a larger depth of field than a smaller f stop (large aperture) of f2.0

There is minimum distance which camera can focus on. I just tested it and it something like 10cm. It is just limitation of harware. When i look your photos it seems you shot those closer than that treshold. Using macro mode gives you few centimeters closer focus.
