    A fixed focusing like feature is on the 10.2 camera app...just focus and press and hold the focus box to lock that focal length no u can take more precise photos....neat feature anyway there's a lock icon to denote the feature in the focus box
    . ...don't argue with me that it was known to me cause I didn't see any post
    I used the Z10 LE with Official Beta 10.2 os with camera app from original 10.2

    Good Catch,

    I've seen it when using the camera before, but I don't think anyone pointed it out to the forums.

    already in 10.1.0.2543 and it's because you can put it focus on a darkspot and that make it lighter so you can take pictures. In 2543 it is marked blue and when you swipe around the screen it unlocked.

    From what I see, the square is blue when you move the focus position, not when it is locked. I just release it and it turns white again and goes back to autofocus. I see no way to activate this in 10.1.0.4181 (official Telus version), if it is even there.

    How come we're supposed to have it, and how to activate if that's the case? I can't seem to find anything about focus lock before 10.2 leaks came out.

    I've got a STL100-3 on Bell with the 10.1.0.4181 OS and can't get this to work, any suggestions? Locking the focus is a very useful option and looking forward to it arriving.

    This is great for video recording. No more continuous focusing/refocusing.

    Don't want to be pedantic but what you're actually doing there is locking both the focus and exposure at the point that you've chosen. Handy thing to have as hardly any phones offer this feature any more!

    Very cool! I knew about moving the cursor around to focus on a (narrow) plan, keeping the image orientend to another which creates beatiful images...
    But this, I needed to fix the continuous refocussing when scanning/taking photos of a document!
    Many thanks!
