Hi guys,

I've noticed it's taking a good 2-3 seconds to focus before taking a picture - is there any way to speed this up? I thought the laser focus was meant to make it pretty instant?

Thanks!

I've noticed it too. It is a bit frustrating
When the conditions are good (nearly perfect), it takes the picture instantly with good focus/quality.
Often if I take a portrait of my girl, it takes a long time... OK, maybe it's because of her Seriously, it seems that the autofocus doesn't know where to focus (background or foreground).

That's the one I've been using, literally just tapping to shoot. Not sure what's causing the delay...

Check to see if HDR is on. If it is, turn it off and try again.

Tried that and no luck.. Even factory reset the phone and no joy..

Emailed LG support for advice.. I guess I am keen to know if anyone in low light can take several photos one after the other?? Mine has about 3 seconds gap between each photo for indoors shots!!

Is there a solution to this yet? I have tried the cyanogenmod camera on my G3 and the speed of focus is amazing, but photo quality is not good enough (I guess this does not use the laser autofocus either).

really just want the G3 stock camera to take photos quickly indoors in low light??

Any ideas?
