Bug Description

With Aquaris E4.5 and ota4 update, when photos are taken of darker nearby objects, they become out of focus if there are significantly lighter objects further in the background. This happens even when the camera focus locator is manually pointed to the foreground objects (by touching the screen). Strangely, when video is taken in exactly the same conditions (same location, light conditions, foreground and background objects), there is no problem with incorrect focus, i.e. foreground objects are sharp, as they should be. Also while taking photos, the foreground objects appear significantly darker than those in the video record.

Hi Gedas,

Thanks for reporting this issue. Any chance you could attach a sample photo exhibiting the issue? And a video of the same scene would be great too!

Thanks,

Florian
