Camera won't focus

Is there a known issue with the Playbook camera and OS2 Beta? 


After installing it, my camera will not focus in either still or video mode.


Is anyone else having the same problem? 


Sidenote- I am also hearing stories that the camera is locked down and cannot be accessed by Android apps.  Is that true?

Hello Mark,


The unsupported app types, hardware/software features and intents can be found within the Android microsite located at:



Please note that the PlayBook OS 2.0 developer beta is not feature complete and does not contain end user features.

Re: Camera won't focus

Maybe I'm totally confused by your question, but there is no auto-focus...
