    Yeah, I wonder if it's your device. I get consistently better photos out of my Passport than out of an iPhone SE or a Sony Z3 Compact. Focus time took me a little adjustment but now I get noise-free, quality pics.

    Lol. There's no way a passport has better phones than an iPhone 6 SE. Unless I'm blind or something the SE has a helluva camera over my passports camera.

    My experience is exactly the same as OP's.
    The SE camera sucks!

    Nothing like my SE.

    I've started having the same focusing issues on my Passport SE as the OP from time to time. I bought my Passport SE second-hand so I don't expect any warranty. It is pretty annoying though. I'm hoping it's a software and not hardware issue that maybe 10.3.3 will fix (along with double typing issues occasionally).

    I'm guessing it's software because, at least on the Z30, you do see it focus properly on close objects, then lose focus. If it was hardware, then the focusing mechanism wouldn't have been able to show the focused image.

    Absolutely agree to what has been said before

    The Passport can do amazing photos which outshine both Galaxy and iPhone. The HDR mode is amazing and doesn't hold a candle to anything else on the market when it comes to colours and contrast. How the passport copes with bad lighting conditions if you have the patience to wait for the focus is astonishing. In fact most of the pictures on my Instagram are taken with the Passport and I regularly get compliments from iPhone and Galaxy users about how great they are.

    However, that is for mostly for still pictures, and higher distances. When it comes to taking photos while moving, selfies or bad lighting conditions the passport takes ages to focus if it does at all. This is absolutely agonising, especially because I know how great of a picture the passport can take and and because my old iPhone 5 I often have with me can focus in less a than a second.

    To me it is obvious that this is a software issue that could easily be fixed with an update. Absolutely frustrating how BlackBerry is holding back their (former) flagships full potential.
