Sorry if there is already a post on this, I am new here!
So I got my HTC One X in October, which I love it very much and I have no problems with it. But today, I wanted to take a close-up picture of a ring that I bought - but it's not focusing. It's all blurred (the ring & any other close up things). I also touched the preview to focus, nothing!
Is there anything to solve this problem? I'm sorry I can't post pictures, as I am new here
Welcome to the forums!
Didnt see your post until now so I moved it here for you.
How close are you getting? There is a limit on how close you can get before it will try to focus and fail.
Mikestony is absolutely right. A couple of days ago I tried to focus on the AC adapter in order to take a picture of the text printed on it but I couldn't. Just like the human eye, you can only get so close to it until it becomes blurry, so just try to create a bit of a distance and then tap-to-focus. There are also a couple of applications that may help you with taking close pictures, and they're:
They're both designed for people who know a thing or two about photography (which I am not one of) but they're still not difficult to use for normal users.

the built in camera also has a macro (close-up) mode that you can select in the selector menu (the big A by default) that should help with close up pictures, but there is a certain point where it can't quite get it focused. you should be able to get fairly close though.
On my dad's HTC Wildfire S, the closer I get still gives me a great result. The One X = nothing. I tried to take a close picture of my keyboard, for example, there is good distance between the camera and the keyboard. But still, not focusing.
Something must be wrong with missdenise's camera or settings since I just took a couple of close-up pictures of my keyboard (with close-up feature deactivated and then activated) and they turned out just fine.
As you can see in the second picture, it starts to lose focus and clarity, but that's because I was way too close. Sorry about the dirt on the keyboard, by the way, I haven't cleaned it in ages; I will do so in a few, though.
I haven't tested it on text yet but I am going to later and post the outcome. I don't think I can get too close to a text in a book, for instance, as to take a great picture with clear quality, it's just not possible with a standard camera like ours, it'll probably require a professional camera and some photography skills.
For the next 60 seconds, I will conduct a test of my emergency broadcast equipment. AAAAHHHHH!!! Had this been a real emergency, the scream you just heard would be followed by lots more just like it. This concludes My test of my emergency broadcast equipment.
The HTC One X is the first quad-core Android smartphone, not only by HTC but from any manufacturer. It'll have a Tegra 3 chipset inside by NVIDIA alongside 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel HD camera with flash, front-facing camera, a 4.7 inch 720p di... Read More
