    I just got the bionic a few days ago and the camera sucks. It is all fuzzy and will not focus. I did do a search I did not find no posting about this issue.

    I just got mine days ago and mine is perfect. I'd maybe take yours back or something. I'm loving mine.

    I haven't had a focusing problem with my Bionic. What is your Firmware? It should be at least 5.5.893.

    I suggest trying an camera app like Camera Zoom FX. It costs, but it's a good substitute.

    Agree with above user. Camera Zoom FX has a Stable Shot Mode that would be perfect for your situation. Not too mention it takes full advantage of the 8MP camera.

    I had that happen last Saturday, as a result, I am giving up Patron Silver on Fridays ;-)

    Seriously, mine works pretty good. I do use Camera Zoom FX.

    Mine is that way too. Very frustrating. I got it a few months ago and it is up-to-date. Whenever I get the subject in the frame, it focuses on the subject clearly, then when I click to capture the picture it refocuses and ends up blurry. Every time. Grrr!

    Same problem with mine -- I just transferred 197 pictures to a PC and maybe 5 are usable -- just wretched focus. 2.3.4, System 5.9.905. Trying Camera Zoom, which fortuitously is on sale this week...

    Strange... and you're stock? Is there anything in the camera lens?

    Camera Zoom FX has been on sale for a while, but it's a good value.

    I went to Preview Night at ComicCon in San Diego without my camera. Using the Bionic was hit and miss in terms of focus. You can see one at Slave Leia | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Absolutely stock, nothing visible in the lens to the nekkid eye, and it's clean. Every once in a while (about 2% of the time, it appears) a picture is in sharp focus, and when taking the picture the display generally looks good. I thought maybe I was moving the camera, or tapping the camera button shook it too much or something, but even pictures taken with the phone clamped to a stand are fuzzy. I should have some time to experiment with the Camera Zoom app tomorrow and will report back.
