Hello everybody,

I've taken a lot of pictures recently with my 1020 and due to actual weather, a lot of them were under sub-optimal conditions, which is good for testing the camera.
I noticed that my camera seems to have problems with landscape shots. I understand that in a landscape shot, everything should be sharp, because the lens will be wide open.
Check out this photo in auto mode and auto focus. Only some leafs in the front of the tree are sharp, on the left side everything looks blurry.
What am I doing wrong here?

just wondering, who said that images look sharper on landscape mode? i think sharpness is irrelevant here, or am i wrong?

I'm not sure how far away you were from that front tree, but is it possible you had the camera focus on it and not infinity? As others have mentioned, with an f 2.2 lens, this camera has a fairly narrow depth of field.

Click my signature and it should take you to a guide that will explain a lot of the questions you have. The quick and easy answer, though, is that you can set the focus manually to infinity through Nokia Pro Camera or an equivalent app and you'll get everything in focus in the image. Or at least as in focus as you can for a fixed aperture lens like the ones on all phone cameras.
