    1. Does anyone know the hyperfocal distance for the Lumia 1020 camera?

    (ie by focusing your camera at the hyperfocal distance, you can ensure maximum sharpness from half this distance all the way to infinity).

    It's useful to know the hyperfocal distance, so you can work out how far away you need to stand from a foreground object in order to keep both foreground and background objects in sharp focus. I never used to worry about hyperfocal distance with an iphone, because the sensor is so small pretty much everything stays in focus for most shots. With the Lumia 1020's larger sensor, maximum depth of field sharpness is harder to achieve.

    2. Alternatively, when auto focusing on a distant object such as the horizon (infinity, approximately), how much of the foreground remains out of focus? I'm happy to test this myself, but wondered if there was any published info - or tests that other Lumia 1020 users have already carried out.

    Many thanks
