    Hi there! I manage to get nice pics with distance objects by choosing the focus range manually . I was furious because i did not be able to get nice ones in auto focus.... So try to play with the "Nokia Camera" , take your moment. Bye

    I am not sure about the reason for the blurred pictures I got out of my Nokia 1020, but after repair it works fine. I tried to find out what was going on with camera. It auto-focusses to the sharpest point and than back to blurry. Strange! As I tried manual focus in Nokia Pro camera I wonder why infinity wasn't infinity. A bit befor you reach the infinity position on the slider the picture was sharp. On the infinity position the picture came out unsharp. After repair with a new camera everything works as expected. Infinity is the sharpest position for landscape pictures and the autofocus do what he should do. Also the 2. microphone was defect. Nokia's final check could be better.
    How did you get that repaired? I have the same exact issue

    when i bought the nokia 1020 was the best mobile because of the camera.
    10 days ago the mobile start making problems, the camera won't focus.
    honestly the nokia lumia 1020 without his camera is just a normal mobile
    is it a hardware or software problem?
    any one can help me?

    Most probably a hardware problem. Send it to NCC while you have that warranty (be sure to not using the Developer Program or else your warranty will be voided).

    If you asked me, I have the same problem as the blurry focus so I did sent it to NCC but with Developer Program >.<

    I have been having the same issue
    usually wont focus on objects about 6-10 feet away
    sometimes i can get lucky and it will--auto focus AND manual
    tried HARD reset, no good. guess i will try the nokia recovery software just to see
    i am out of the warranty, assuming it only lasts a year

    this makes me very sad because this is my favorite gadget and i go to a lot of car shows and loving playing with the raw image files :(

    I think i'm having the exact same problem, I've had my 1020 for a while now, and my brother has one too, and his images look amazing, and high quality whether it's long distance or close up, but my photos only look good if it's of something really close up, but any other photo looks completely blurry, and this has been the case since I first got it, no drops or anything as soon as it came out of the box, did you find a way to fix it or shall I take it into a phone store?

    I suffered with this same closeup focus problem, even in "closeup" scene mode, but found that when zoomed in slightly, still in "closeup" scene mode, it took perfectly focused closeups. I am now researching the yellow tint that seems to sometimes creep into pics. I agree with a previous post that we should all research our phone and learn to understand and optimize its features. Very often issues arise from user-unfamiliarity, although there is an argument for making the features and applications more intuitive and user-friendly.
    Apart from that, this is an undeniably awesome camera-phone. It is more like a camera with a phone accessory than the other way around. Wife was always griping about forgetting the camera or wishing she had the camera when "kodak moments" present. I got her a 1020 and the griping is a thing of the past. The pictures are as good as the best camera we've had. Still wish it had removable storage, though.

    Had the same issue last yr. Sent it in as it was still under warranty and it works great now. Battery life is beginning to decline now though. It's out of warranty though so hopefully the 940/1040 cones out soon.

    I have this same problem... Won't focus in distant objects. Focuses for a moment, then goes blurry again. I thought maybe there is dust or something inside the camera or on the lens which is forcing it to go into near sighted focus. Has anybody updated to Windows 10? I think it's odd that so many of us, including me, only have noticed this problem after the update. I have had this problem for seven months
