5MP Camera that doesn't seem to FOCUS!

I am sure I am not the only one that has noticed this but even when holding the TPT still, photos appear not to be in good focus.  Hopefully this can be corrected with an OTA update.  (Even though I didn't purchase it for the camera)

The focus is a scandal, to say the least.

I have the same problem. I cannot use QRcodes because the camera can't focus on them. Amazingly, my $100 cellphone has no trouble with the same QRcodes.

Thankfully bar codes are handled fine. All other uses give very soft images.

Yup - same problem.

 

I have RMA'ed mine for the duff micro-USB port and will also notify them of the bad camera.

 

However, I have been told it will be 30 days for repair. Sadly, our business will not be buying any more of these tablets.

Yeah, don't think anyone can really get the camera working with the Barcode Scanner...or at least the focus...

Re: 5MP Camera that doesn't seem to FOCUS!

@pghFL, I can't remotely get mine to handle barcodes. The barcode/QR Code scanning functionality of Android, which is very good, is totally useless on this machine due to the camera. There is another thread asking Lenovo to resolve the issue from a few weeks back. @justguy, I totally agree, I was going to pick up a half-dozen of these to manage our inventory and see where it went from there, now that I've discovered how different the marketing nonsense is from the truth I know better. How can Lenovo call this a business machine when it under performs compared to the "consumer" tablets ? Really an insult to the Thinkpad Brand.

Bar code scanning is no problem for me. Just really hate the OOF images from the camera.
