    I've tried to take pictures of text in total darkness and the flash goes off before the camera can even focus! All my night shots are blurry, and unfocused.

    The Lg Esteem didnt do this, it would go of while the camera is focusing, not at the same time:mad:

    any fixes on this:confused:,

    Hmm. I do not have this problem, i just tested several times. Maybe try a different camera app such as "lg camera pro"? If still no luck, maybe try factory resetting your device??

    so you were able to take pictures of close up text for example a book or homework worksheet up close, and the phone focuses at the same time as the flash went off?

    i didn't have this problem with my esteem cause when I pressed and held the camera button (in the dark) the flash would first light up, and then it would focus

    here's an example (totally dark completely):http://s774.photobucket.com/albums/.../xjosh2724x/?action=view&current=CAM00121.jpg




    Not dark, focused first then flash:http://s774.photobucket.com/albums/.../xjosh2724x/?action=view&current=CAM00122.jpg

    I did more testing with this, and the stock camera does not get the desired results everytime. Sometimes didnt focus at all. But did work as one would expect it to. But i loaded up "camera 360" and would focus perfectly every time. It must be a problem with the stock camera app. Maybe someone can rip the.esteem cameras apk for us to try on our connects, if it will even work on our phones

    And just to make sure for when we do try to use the esteems camera apk, for the people who try it out, MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR CONNECTS CAMERA FIRST!! and wouldnt hurt to make a full nandroid backup first either ;)
