There is another thread on focusing issue, but I don't know if we are talking the same thing since the OP set the focus to infinity, not auto.
Z1 Compact camera loses focus easily in dark/bright situations. Not only in video mode but in photo mode too, obviously. It happens all the time, even on far objects. Here I demonstrate with screen of another phone because it is a very good dark/bright object with a great contrast.
I've tested on stock, CM and Slim camera apps. This video is taken on Slim camera.
Do you have the same problem?
