Macro shots on a fixed focus camera? Now there is a way
Nokia is in the avant-garde of the controversial full focus technology implementing it on a handful of its latest handsets – the upcoming Nokia E7, the C7 as well as the C6-01. However, it seems that most of the users are actually upset with it as the technology lacks macro mode whatsoever and is considered a downgrade to the familiar auto-focus. But fear not – the solution has been found.
Let's not sound overly ironical, but it is simple. Actually, simpler than you would expect. You just need a magnifying glass. And yes, you need to have it with you at all times for those macro shots to work. Clearly, it is not a real solution, but it is a fun one. Maybe not for the one taking pictures, but just imagine how people will look when they see you trying to take pictures with the help of a magnifying glass.
Okay, to be fair we appreciate the creativity of Jade Bryan from SymbianWorld, who came up with it, and it does indeed yield great results, but still... To compare the technologies, traditional auto-focus yields good in focus pictures with no regard of the distance to the object, while the full focus module only gives sharp images when the object is more than 20 inches apart. Take a look at the pictures taken with a magnifying glass and the Nokia C7 and let us know what you think about the full focus cameras.
