  Re: [Aroid-l] ID needed - The Curse of Auto-Focus
From: "Weaver, Bill" <bill.weaver at hp.com> on 2008.09.12 at 23:36:17(18523)

I have found that many cameras will exhibit this behavior if the object in the foreground is too close for it to

physically focus on and is simply ignored in favor of something it can focus on. This being said, I have seen and

purchased several digital cameras with a 'macro' setting that reverses this problem and focuses quite nicely on

the itty bitty thing in the foreground.

To check if your digital camera has such a capability, look for a 'focus' setting or button and set it to 'macro'

or 'close-up' or the setting that displays the little flower icon.

Hope this helps.
