    So today I was showing off my phone at work and using photo beamer. The first few times I showed it off it worked perfectly finem then the last time I tried it, it just didn't work. I noticed the camera keeps focusing in and out.

    I want to know if this occurs with anyone else using Photobeamer... that app is so great but I'm really worried I have a defective unit, but it doesn't seem like it because all camera functions still work properly.

    Just to note, photobeamer still works for me at home, perhaps I was too close to the monitor, but either way it still focuses in and out, i want to know if it happens to anyone else.

    The second issue is that since the camera cant focus on anything closer than about 6-7 inches, how are we supposed to use barcode scanner apps such as red laser? I tried it earlier and it doesn't seem like it works.

    I'm not sure about Photobeamer, but it looks like someone has a solution to barcode scanning here.

    Yeah, unfortunately it isn't a solution. It works with the QR barcodes, but UPC barcodes can't scanned from that distance.

    Try to make the QR tag smaller.

    In Firefox that's Ctrl + Scroll wheel or Ctrl + Minus.

    If the tag is approx 7x7cm big it works with my Lumia 920 - if it's bigger it doesn't work.
    As soon as it's scanned you can restore the original zoom level with ctrl + 0 (zero).
