HTC Hero Touch FocusThe upcoming HTC Hero firmware is set to bring several improvements including an overall performance boost. However, it looks like that it will also add touch focus to the camera app. The video below shows that you can simply tap on the part of the picture you want focused. It is believed that it will also bring ISO support up to ISO 800 too. Check out a video below to see this touch focus in action.

Sounds great! I really hate that it focuses only to the center point and there’s no way to re-compose the frame.

What’s the point of adding useless ISO values? With the amount of noise these tiny sensors make even at ISO 200 they might have just as well added ISO 1000000.

Great news, hopefully if they’re reworking the camera apps, we’ll get higher res video? surely a 5.2 megapixel camera could at least manage 640×480!

The most important is to fix the performance issues.

Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, superb blog!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article
seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
