The Samsung Galaxy S was one of the most popular Android handsets last year. In some aspects, it still is. The handset did have its fair share of controversy with a non-usable GPS and the Froyo update delay.
The back of the Galaxy S sports a 5MP camera with Auto-Focus and face detection. Earlier, the Auto-Focus used to work only while clicking pictures. However, recently Samsung released an app on the Samsung Apps’ store called the Camera Firmware Update.
The application updates the firmware of of the camera and enables continuous auto-focus while recording videos.
Below is a video shot from the Galaxy S which shows the auto-focus feature :
The picture and the video quality taken from the camera remains the same. Galaxy S owners can download the application from here. Users are warned not to uninstall this app once they update the camera firmware of their handset. The app works on rooted Galaxy S handsets, as well as one running on Custom ROMs.
It is nice to see Samsung still adding some handy features to the Galaxy S.
