So has it now been determined that the camera does click when focusing?

    In very quiet environments, me camera clicks while it tries to focus. Then, even when I get the green corners, very seldom is it actually in focus. I know there is supposed to be a software fix on the way, but still curious if this is what others have been seeing?

    Ditto! It's always red, except for that one time (in store) - LOL!

    I downloaded camera apps which seem to be able to focus some of the time, but none of them are able to utilize the flash!

    Mine is red a lot as well, BUT the photos are still clear and focused on my computer.

    Anything I take with this camera really only goes on Facebook so not 100% concerned.

    I am going to wait until December 11th to see what the update fixes.

    I also only got the green corners once, and when I tried scanning a barcode with an app the camera focused in and out constantly without locking on.

    josh, I had the same problem you did with the barcode scanning app. I've managed to get it to read a COUPLE times, but it takes a lot of time, energy, and effort. For now, if I actually want to use that program, I'll stick to punching in the barcode. Hopefully the December 11th update fixes this problem.

    Interesting. I will see what the update fixes and if I need a swap I will do it. I cannot get any in focus shots even though I get green corners.

    My camera doesn't click, it, well, it CLANKS! A metallic, but delicate, CLANK! Seems to work fine, just makes noise. And no green here, but the pics are fine. Maybe the GREEN corners are incorrect!
