Since Nokia Refocus is now available for download, we took the new app out for a spin.
Overall, the app definitely works and can make some cool pictures that can be refocused. Whether it will actually be useful or simply a gimmick is up to you.
Taking a good picture with the app can be tricky, since you can’t specify exactly what you want in focus. It takes about 6 shots at different focus levels, meaning your item could definitely fall between one of those levels. It’d be great if you could specify what you want in focus, and then it gets those 2 or 3 points in focus.
But with some practice, you can make some neat shots. The difficult thing is finding a scene that would actually look cool with this refocus trick. You usually have to go out of your way to figure out what would look good.
Overall, it’s a fun app worth checking out. Get it in the Store for free.
