    My 1020 photos are appalling at the moment. They are just unfocused. Took photos of my daughter seeing Santa yesterday, no time to fiddle with settings. Ended up with awful out of focus shots, friends Iphone pics were fab.
    So fed up, I nearly missed the pics altogether because of the loading screen.
    Video isn't great either.

    Someone in a thread above mentions Cyan. Having thought about it, it has been since Cyan that things have taken a down turn.

    So fed up with this, I bought this phone specifically for the camera. Close up shots are fine, but anything more that 6' away isn't focussed. Will a hard reset work or will Denim sort it?

    I'm having similar problems on Cyan w/ PFD - however the autofocus focuses at a long distance perfectly, whereas manual long distance focusing is out of focus. Anyone else had similar issued/solutions?

    Have you tried focussing manually? See if that works. If that doesn't then it may be a hardware issue.

    i too am having focus issues when taking up close pics e.g. product photos. i tap to focus it focuses fine then loses it in right when i click to take picture.

    i've found using the microsoft camera app rather than lumia camera app works better for closeups, but i wanted those beautiful macro shots ive seen on these forums before buying the phone! L(

    Tap to focus was working better than autofocus. But the phone has been sent away for repair as it packed in completely. Just realised I should have mentioned this issue to the repair place.

    Just did some more testing and it's definitely the auto focus, tried several apps (Lumia, Microsoft, oneshot and proshot) and 9 out of 10 times tap to focus of close items eg text on a piece of paper is blurry, if I do manual focus it works but most of the times I don't have time to do manual focus .

    Any known fixes?
