Hi to all!

I'm having camera issues especially when making night pictures. The pics are very blurry and dark. And it seems like auto focus is not working.

You can see some examples on the site below, seems I'm not the only one having it:

I'm on .73 FW.

Will flashing a new rom solve my problem (because i think it's sofware related).

Please share your opinion.

Thanks!!

Try a third party app with good camera drivers.

When in low light the AF will be slower and hesitating. This is not unique to Xperia S. Any digital camera using AF(either phase detection or contrast detection) are like this.
This is also why on most digital cameras there is a "AF assist lamp" to help the low-light AF situations.

Try turn the video recording light on and make it the "AF assist lamp".

The focusing capability of the built in app is not that good especially in low light. Scratchling is correct. Use a good third party app and you will see your focusing in low light improve.

Downgrade to 0.63 and re install 0.73, with FlashTools.
