I'm clearly doing something wrong then haha Is there a way to focus and then take a good picture?
Are you using the actual button outside the phone to take the picture? You have to barely push it, let it focus and then push it in all the way. Try playing with it until you get used it and mess with the options. Only way to learn.
I accidentally had my camera on macro setting and all of my photos were crud until I remembered and switched it back to normal or auto or something....all of my photos have come out pretty good looking
