    Has anyone replaced their camera lens on their Passport. My camera isn't focusing property. I wonder if the cost will be worth it?

    What makes you think it is the lens though?
    I would first make sure the Scene selection is reflective of the conditions under which the photographs are being taken.
    Auto Scene is pretty good to start out with.

    Nothing focuses probably. Plus my proximity sensor in acting up too. 30% of the time when i go to answer an in coming call it rejects the calls as soon as i touch my phone. It's all messed up.

    I ordered one from ebay and waiting for it to arrive. I'll let you know when i install it and try it. I definitely broke my camera. It used to focus but it doesnt focus at all any more. So frustrating.
    Oh, the camera cost me just over $50 Canadian.

    This is, of course, not in order. With my SE pictures can get blurred when I take them from a fast moving vehicle, a bus for instance. But quietly taken photos are practically all good.

    I like taking pictures of good books (if allowed). This one, showing a destillation apparatus, is from a lexicon in a public library for my personal use. It is sharp and clear. By sizing down it gets a bit weaker. But at least thus clear should your photo also be, if the camera worked correctly.

    The camera is super easy to replace. my focusing was all jacked up. it was a physical issue. You could hear the focusing mechanism. bought a replacement on ebay, took about 10mins to replace on my own

    i think my focus is a bit slow. Hard to tell in seconds, but is definitely annoying if i have to snap a picture while on the move. Does that mean that my focus mechanism is going to fail soon?

    what do you mean, "on the move"? in a car? walking? rocket strapped to your back?

    yeah, walking, car whatever. If i don't hold it firmly with two hands and give it 2 seconds to focus, the picture gets out of focus. badly

    I had an issue with my camera not focusing once and ran BBVE...well my compass would also constantly spin clockwise so it turned out that the gyrometer or whatever in the phone was jacked so the camera wouldn't focus, compass wouldn't work, GPS would act crazy etc. Got it fixed under warranty by BlackBerry. So definitely take not if you have any other issues besides the camera focusing I guess is my point for anyone else reading this!
