    What is the difference between and advantages/disadvantages of "Normal" focus setting and the "Auto" focus setting? Primarily though what is the "Normal" Focus setting?

    The Android users guide only states the following:
    "FOCUS MODE Touch to set Camera to use its Autofocus feature (AUTO), or to
    more quickly take pictures focused at infinity (INFINITY)."

    The Virgin Mobile users guide is not much help either:
    "Options
    Focus mode Set to Auto, Normal, or Off."

    Thanks, Bob

    Autofocus actually focuses on objects. The other doesn't, so it will only work for long range and landscape shots. I would just leave it at auto

    You can always touch what you want it to focus on

    So is "Normal" the same as "Infinity"?
