Camera autofocus issue

I found that is very easy to take pictures out of focus with XT720

The phone says the scene is focused (the focus target turn to "GREEN") but the central object is not correcly focused.

This happens to me especially in Macro mode

Some tips?

Thanks

Re: Camera autofocus issue

How far away from the object are you?

Re: Camera autofocus issue

Probably sometimes I'm too close, but I wonder why the phone does not want to display a red target to show that the subject is out of focus.

I have the feeling that the autofocus measure area is too wide (is it something that can be corrected with sw fix or is a hw limit?)

Thanks

Re: Camera autofocus issue

I think you are right about the autofocus area. I specialize in macros and always use manual focus with my DSLR. I just suggested that there ought to be an option to freeze the autofocus in place or some sort of manual override.
