According to numerous sites on the internet, both the Bold 9900 and 9930 do not have an auto focus camera. That is a travesty for what is suppose to be BlackBerry's device. Without auto focus, the camera will not be able to simple functions like take close up photos or scan bar codes. I was looking forward to getting a Bold 9930 when it came to Verizon but the more I hear about the less I like it and I've been a loyal BlackBerry user for many years.

As a great fan of BlackBerry smartphones, I was so dissapointed to find out after buying the phone that there is no auo-focus function on the camera.
I have used a few BlackBerry phones from the Bold 9780 to the Torch 9800 then now changing to the 9900. At first use, the phone is great. Great build especially the metal trimmings on the side, nice screen, great new OS7 and a awesome feeling keypad.
But then my photos started turning out really blur and with further research on the net to find out that the camera lacks the auto-focus function. Is is really a big step backward for RIM.
I guess for normal photo taking, the photos come out ok and the colour saturation has improve. But I mainly use the camera function to snap photos of close-up objects and food stuff to email it out immediately. The camera is rendered useless for this function. Also without auto-focus, its impossible to copy text of documents.
I really hope RIM will come out with a new phone that has AUTO-FOCUS on it, if not I am sure they will be loosing some potential purchasers to the iPhone or Android powered phones.

You are kidding me.....
I just puchased the Card Scanner App and the
software cannot figure out what the letters are because the
photo is so poor.
I tryed using the camera software for diffrent situations but it
don't make any changes.
