One of the selling points of the Nokia E71 is the 3.2 megapixel camera with Autofocus. This can come in handy for taking picture of text or documents when you don't have a scanner or copy machine around.
For the life of me I could not figure out why my E71 wouldn't autofocus. I started to think maybe I have a defective device. Then just this morning I was reading the comments in the Help section of this site and someone showed me the light. What's the trick?
Push "T" on your E71 when about to take a picture. Simple as that.
You will then notice the camera focus and see a green border. This means the camera is in focus and you can now hit the center button like normal to capture your image. Thanks to Massi for the tip.
But Massi has a good question...
Do you have to use the T button to autofocus or does it autofocus when the pad is pressed. And if so, why is the T button used for focusing?
Really I have no idea why the E71 does autofocus by itself without having to press anything. And I don't know why they chose the T button either. If anyone knows share your thoughts.
Am I the only knucklehead that didn't figure this out and didn't read the E71 user manual?
