    there is definately autofocus functionality in this camera, do you think the lens is powered by a small motor?
    thats pretty cool in such a small package

    Does the lens have to have a motor to have Autofocus? [s]I don't think anything is moving in my phone when it focuses, I think it is all processing.[/s] Nope...it's moving.

    i hear a click sound an instant before the camera takes a photo. and if you examine the lens, it is not flush with the glass,there seems to be some space.

    my eyesight is not good enough to see the lens move however. i used to think it was done through processing, but when i try taking photos of close objects, i think it has to be done through optics to get that well focused.

    I never noticed it before, but it appears my 920 camera does physically move when I take a photo, haha, but is that just OIS? The 520 wouldn't have that though... I can't hear anything either.

    Any camera that has an autofocus moves :), used to own a Nokia N90 and was fascinated when the camera made a movement when I held the capture key halfway.
