IPhone 5S camera focus


Does anyone else often get blurry images when taking photos with iPhone 5S? I just feel they are more frequent than on my iPhone 4 and was wondering if anyone else experienced the same.

Best Answer

Blurry photos occur because:

  • skin oil or other cruft (pocket lint) is on the lens
  • the camera software is focusing on distant objects (when you want a closeup,) or focusing on close objects (when you want a distant object.)

If you are having trouble focusing, tap in the yellow focus box on the screen. You will notice that the software shows a larger yellow box when it detects a closeup shot, and a smaller box when it detects a distance shot.
