Maybe that fruit to small and cant be detected by camera, its different if i can manually set focus point. Focusing by touching the screen really difficult for small object because of limited screen size.
I made a test with macro setting, I got very close(15cm) to the flower without zoomming, see what I got! It's look awesome for me. http://www.flickr.com/photos/88145463@N05/8061415740/in/photostream

Select Scenes. In Scenes, select Close-up. From 15cm (6") away from subject, zoom all the way towards subject. Click and snap the picture.
2nd method: Position camera 15cm (6") away from subject. Launch Camera. Select Creative Mode. In Creative Mode, select PureView, Aspect ratio either 16:9 or 4:3 (the last is my preference), Resolution from 8MP, 5MP, 3MP (4:3), 2MP (16:9), JPEG quality Superfine, Colour tones Normal, Capture mode either Normal or Self-timer 2 seconds. Go back to the screen and long press the screen, choose Close-up. From 15cm (6") away from subject, zoom all the way towards subject. Click and snap the picture.
I hope this helps. If it does, please share this guide to others. Thanks!

* I want to capture that small pepper fruit but it keep focusing the grass, a bit piss off after half hour trying & the result always the same
Nokia 808 PureView is now 18000 Philippine pesos = 434.5722 US dollars @ SM Mall of Asia in the Philippines. Limited stocks only. Attention Eastspark and Altus.
The 808 already supports most of what you have stated. Use macro mode for very close to lens shots. Update to the latest Belle FP2 firmware.

The camera on the 808 is capable of most of what you say it can't do. Try playing with the settings and update to Belle FP2
I would kindly request you to rectify the memory card support column details entered by you to 64GB instead of 32GB. As I have tested the Sandisk 64GB Class 10 microsdxc card into one of the demo handset in one of the reputed electronic mall here in Mumbai,India. It's practically working very well without the need for formatting the memory card. Infact the handset responded really well without even restart or hanging.
Thanks & Regards,

I was hoping if there will be Pureview II, Hope all these problem will fix & hopefully camera come with Burst mode, Panorama. The way camera is now i think Burst mode cant be used with app since the lens is open & closed is it guys ?

So, if Nokia kills it, is dead! Who would buy a system killed by it's own manufactor? I know this is b***s**t but it's reality. I love symbian and it's potential is far away from all other useless systems. But peoples are always cheap, and the publicity is always for them. Now ios and android are the main actors for the flock of sheeps! But... Everyone is in court now, suing left and right. This 'run after money masquerade' where cheap copykats sue cheap copykats, will soon come to an end. Hopefully very soon, so can symbian araise again:).
hasan, 05 Oct 2012It is amazing but it still nokiaYesss, it is Nokia.... The only manufactor with more then 5 years experience on the market. Ja, it is still nokia... You people have to stop comparing a manufactor with a mobile system. Nokia is nokia and could be symbian or windows, ios or android does not matter. Why? Simple... cause in this area Nokia is the best, samsung, htc, lg are some kind of wash machine junk (i don't know, like a fake made on a ship addidas shue) and apple is for school kinder;) it is nokia = experience = innovations = quality. Ja. It is still nokia, hopefully will remain Nokia.
