Actually, the Barcode Scanner app does auto-focus (for me, at least).

Which one are you using? I've tried QR Droid, the Amazon shopping app, and a few others, and none of them are able to focus.

Thanks

I'm using the app "Barcode Scanner", and Google Goggles works too. But I don't think it matters which app is used.

Are you perhaps using the latest cm7 nightly? Because the latest nightly (20120409) changelog includes this entry: "disable autofocus on camcorder start", and since code readers probably depend on camcorder functionality, it may be the cause.

I'm using RC1 btw, and it seems camcorder does focus as well.

I was using nightlies and went back to rc1, and the camera still wont create clear images of fine details.

Here's an example, in which the barcode and the text are blurry.

Thanks.

Don't get me wrong, the camera doesn't focus for me either, just the camcorder (video recording), and barcode apps.

If I could get the bar code apps working that would be a great improvement.

Oh well. Guess I'll have to live with it.

Thanks.
