    I am one of those poor souls who only recently got updated to 10.2.1 (thanks, AT&T). Among the many changes I noticed some changes to photo quality in the camera app. Anybody noticed these as well?

    I don't seem to be able to shoot sharp pictures anymore (where to whole subject is in focus). Everything seems much softer than with 10.1, even in broad daylight.

    My first hunch was that there now seems to be a significant reduction of depth of field. There now is significant background defocus where previously everything in the frame was in focus.

    Also, look at this example:

    Depth of field in camera app-img_20140426_174628.jpg

    Compare the driver's side headlamp to the passenger's side headlamp. One is sharp and in focus, the other is not. How narrow is that depth of field here?

    Have you noticed anything like this, or am I seeing ghosts?

    I can't say this has happened to me... But you are not seeing things.

    Have you tried controlling the focus yourself?

    You mean by looking the focus?

    You can drag that square around and place it anywhere on the screen. It also serves as a brightness control (place if over a dark spot to force the cam to compensate and brighten up the image).
