I think I missed the announcement about this but there’s a site on one of Nokia’s page about Refocusing a picture. You click where you want and it focuses at that point AFTER the photo is taken. Notice the buttery bokeh that’s at your command. This is apparently coming in the Nokia Black update. Via

It’s a bit like the app, refocus, where it captures several photos at once in various depths and lets you choose where the focus point will be. It’s not the most accurate though in picking out the focus point (sometimes it feels like it’s just cycling through) but this one works really well.

I’m not sure if this is part of Nokia’s investments in that imaging company, Pelican imaging? (Nokia’s ideas are said to be waiting for hardware to catch up) A quick search shows this reported. A facebook plugin is said to be available that will allow you to change the focus points of pictures you or other people put up taken with a Lumia (either 1520/1020. Not sure about others).

Oh there’s a hands on video at TheVerge. That’s interesting to see – colour pop when tapping.

You know what could help as well in getting a great focus range? EDOF! hahahahaha. Yeah, no macro but everything is in focus (no blur) haha.(BTW Nokia, no. No to EDOF)
