Hi,

 

The focus away from doing close-up shooting mode.

Photos are attracted to blur. = http://prntscr.com/1aa1rr

Is this the case hardware.

What should I do?

Will there be a change in the device.

Merhaba,

 

Uzağı çekerken yakın çekim modunda yapılan makro işlev modunu açıyor.

Uzağı çektiğimde fotoğraflarım bulanık çekiliyor. = http://prntscr.com/1aa1rr

Bu sorun donanımsal mıdır?

Ne yapmalıyım?

Cihaz değişikliğim yapılır mı?

    Morning Akif YALDIR,

     

    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.

     

    For more information on this, take a look at this article:

    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting

    Camera is not functioning

    1. If the screen shows a closed lens or black image, force quit the Camera app.
    2. If you do not see the Camera app on the Home screen, try searching for it in Spotlight. If the camera does not show up in the search, check to make sure that Restrictions are not turned on by tappingSettings > General > Restrictions.
    3. Ensure the camera lens is clean and free from any obstructions. Use a microfiber polishing cloth to clean the lens.
    4. Third-party cases can interfere with the autofocus/exposure feature and the flash (iPhone 4 only); try removing the case if you have image-quality issues with photos.
    5. Try turning iPhone off and then back on.
    6. Tap to focus the camera on the subject. The image may pulse or briefly go in and out of focus as it adjusts.
    7. Try to remain steady while focusing:
      1. Still images: Remain steady while taking the picture. If you move too far in any direction, the camera automatically refocuses to the center. Note: If you take a picture with iPhone turned sideways, it is automatically saved in landscape orientation.
      2. Video: Adjust focus before you begin recording. After recording begins, you cannot readjust focus until you stop recording. Exiting the Camera application while recording will stop recording and will save the video to the Camera Roll. Note: Video-recording features are not available on original iPhone or iPhone 3G.
    8. If your iPhone has a front and rear camera, try switching between them to verify if the issue persists on both.

    Best of luck,

    Mario

    The iPhone can only focus to a certain distance for closeups  then it will try and refocus over and over because it basically cant focus on the object simply because the object is to close. Move the camera away and you will get a better imgage, or use a real camera

    Hello,

     

    I have the same problem as Akif and I cannot find any information about it on the net!

    This problem has nothing to do with tapping on the screen or distances. The problem is my camera app  only makes macro pics! It doesnt focus on anything thats far away or on a normal distance. I just can't get out of the macro mode...and I even didnt knew there was one. This means I cant make 'normal' pictures anymore. None of The standard recommendations to solve camera problems above are of any use for this problem! So can please someone from Apple react!...

     

    Thanks

    Your answer. Apple did fix this problem already.

     

    It's simple really and distance doesn't matter.

     

    After you get your iPhone in place and have the video mode selected, just tap and hold for about 5 seconds or so on the main screen to focus and set exposure on your focus spot and a yellow square will appear on your screen with AE/AF. That means your "Auto Exposure (AE)" and your "Auto Focus (AF)" is locked. Just be sure to tap the record button only and not the general screen area again or the lock will release. Stay the same distance from your subject and it will all stay in focus. No focus pulsing, no exposure shifting/correcting at all. Ignore the dancing focus squares that still show up afterward because the focus is locked and will not unlock for the duration of your filming segment until you touch the main screen again. The yellow square (with AE/AF) will always show on the screen when it's locked.

    Thanx for your response! But this doesnt fix my problem. I still have blurred pics when photogrphing from a distance . Only macro pictures appear sharp! :(

    Did you get the yellow square with the letters in it to show? Don't tap on the screen, but touch and hold 5 seconds on the focus spot you want and the yellow lock square will show with the letters as a smal box on the main viewing area.

     

    It works in all situations and distances and in all camera modes. Read and follow my instructions above. You need to put your finger on the screen where you want the "focus spot" to be and hold for 5 seconds. Make sure by looking at your screen that you picked the right spot to focus. If need be, pick another "focus spot" on the screen and redo it if it looks out of focus. Don't tap to focus. Touch and hold.

     

    Practise this and you'll have great results. I've done this for closeup and far away and it works everytime, both on my iPhone 4 and iPhone 5S.

     

    NOTE: Make sure your lens is clean and you don't have a case on the iPhone that is too close around the lens to cause focus issues.

    Here's an article detailing what I said: http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/973135

     

    NOTE: After I updated to the latests iOS for the iPhone I had to do a restart before the "AE/AF" square would appear in the iPhone Camera app. So do take care to do a restart of your iPhone if you're having troubles with this.
