BlackBerry Bold 9900 - Camera Auto focus disappointment

What a disappointment, Great Phone, Great Operating system, Great touch screen capabilities, but the camera without auto focus is the biggest disappointment ever after having gotten used to this feature, picture quality on any pictures close up like documents, items and parts are not able to be taken in focus leaving the user completely powerless to be able to take a just an ordinary nice picture. This is really a big deterrent in my next BlackBerry purchase and would rather go for a android or iphone that has all the functionality included.

You are right. It is disappointing that a cool Device like this hast only a EDOF camera. But the 9790 got an autofocus instead. Maybe  I will switch the Device.

Yes, very disappointing camera.


I usually use the sport setting for my photos now. Not very sharp but reasonably focused.

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - Camera Auto focus disappointment

I'M agreed at all.

My 9900 CANT give me a better sharp picture.

Already complaint to Service Centre BUT the answer is very un happy.

I hope Blackberry factory do something to get user happy and NOT feel cheated.

Blackberry have to recall all this model for up grading camera purposes.

otherwise Blackberry popularity is going down.

thank you
