    Forgive me if this has been addressed - I searched but didn't find anything about this.

    I've played around with the camera. It does well for what I would want it for. HOWEVER, I have had problems with certain aspects of it.

    When I try to take a close up picture, click on the button, I see it autofocus then...

    Nothing. It doesn't take the picture.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I was trying to take a picture of an approximately 1cm diameter spot on my kid's back to send it to my nurse friend.

    Maybe you were too close to focus?

    I think the key is after holding the auto focus (button halfwaydown) you have to press the rest of the way to take the picture & then RELEASE.

    I messed up a few pictures becasue I kept forgetting to release the button

    ya make sure you auto focus and then fully click to take the pic, it takes some getting used to but you'll get it down, also if your using the button on the screen, hover over it to autofucos and then click fully(surepress) to take the pic.

    Hope this helps and your kid is ok!

    If there is, I can't find it. I wish there was though. It's annoying

    yeah, even if the phone is in silent mode, the camera still has the shutter noise.
