Dear all!

I am not sure when the problems have started, but may be triggered by some of my attempts to tune the camera.

Some weeks ago I realized that the focus of the camera did not work anymore. The camera app tries to focus, but the images are often very blurred (much worse then before). I played around, and reinstalled jolla-camera*, which didn't help, by

pkcon remove jolla-camera
pkcon install jolla-camera

Today I realized that also the setting, where to save new fotos, is not saved in the settings page (jolla-camera-settings). I can set my SD card, but when I reopen the settings page, it says that the SD card is not found. I searched for old config files with wrong permissions, but haven't found any. I have no other problems with mounting of the SD card.

Interesting, maybe suspicious, fact: jolla-camera* apps' version is 1.0.1-1.9.3, i.e.

 jolla-camera-1.0.1-1.9.3.jolla.armv7hl Jolla Camera application
 jolla-camera-lockscreen-1.0.1-1.9.3.jolla.armv7hl  Quick capture viewfinder for the lockscreen.
 jolla-camera-settings-1.0.1-1.9.3.jolla.armv7hl    Setting page for jolla-camera

compared to 1.0.1-1.9.2. in the changelog of Sailfish OS

Do these problems look familiar to you? Do you have some hints?

Thank you!

I discovered that fotos will be stored onto SD even though app settings claim there isn't one.

I asked my self some days ago why the pictures are so unsharp, and if it is the case that they were better in the past... So now, after readin your post, I think the focus was better in previous version!
