[Galaxy S8/S8+] Why the image on the screen is out of focus when moving the S8/S8+ Camera to other far distant subject after focusing to close subjects?

Last Update date : 2017.05.17

This is a normal operation concept of Galaxy S8/S8+ Camera.

 If a subject is focused by touching the screen, the focus is maintained
during 3 seconds with showing manual brightness control level. However, if your camera
moves to another subject before the 3 seconds after touch, the camera will still keep
focus with the distance to subject that you selected manually before.
This is normal concept and accordingly your S8/S8+ camera keeps the distance
to subject that you want to focus by manual.

 

If you want that focus is on automatically and tracks a subject selected on
the preview screen, please activate “Tracking AF” feature.

After you open the Camera application, Please go to settings in below:
