Hi, just over a month ago i noticed that the Camera on my Xperia Z started taking out of focus photos. I changed the camera settings and nothing seemed to work. Whilst in superior auto, the camera would think it was taking an image in Macro mode only and would not autofocus at all. I rang Sony and they told me to do a software reset, which didnt help. I then took it back to JB HiFi. They sent it away to get fixed under warrenty to Telstra, 1 week later my phone arrived back in the exact same condition i sent (in other words NOT FIXED), i took it back in and JB HiFi sent it away again. Its now been over two weeks and i still havnt heard about the repairs. I am getting pretty fed up. Hoping it will be fixed soon.
Has anyone else had this issue, and was it resolved??

Hi, I have the same issue. The camera seems to be stuck on a certain focal length. I have tried all the different focusing options in the menu options, no luck. I remember whentrying to take photos it would vibrate and you culd hear something moving when trying to focus. no more.

It does focus, But First Open The Camera >> Select Normal >> Go To Setting >> Make The Smile Shutter Stop
>> Go To Focus Mode....
Then Here... Select Any Mode That You Like!!
It's So Easy

Can someone please help out here. My Xperia Z is exactlly the same as this. Looking on Google it appears to be a common problem. I have reinstalled the firmware twice now just to be sure. The Vodafone tech team couldnt work it out either.
Is this a software issue or hardware? I have downloaded an alternative camera from the app store, this too does not focus

If all of you have done didn't work, it must be the hardware problem. Take it to the sony service and change a new one.

This do seem like a hardware issue, I've seen this with other users and it was a scratched lens
