When moving the S8/S8+ device to other far distant subjects after focusing to close subjects while recording by S8/S8+ Camera, the screen is out of focus. Similarly when moving the S8/S8+ device to a close subject again after touching the screen to focus to far subject while recording, the image on the screen is also out of focus. Is my device the faulty?

Last Update date : 2017.06.06

If you touch the screen while recording video, your device recognizes that you want to focus on

the subject and accordingly device will keep the distance to subject. This is a normal operation

concept of Galaxy S8/S8+ Camera.


To change the focus while recording a video, tap where you want to focus. To use auto focus mode, tap 1 icon on screen.
