I find it quite frustrating that the asus camera app keep trying to refocus when taking selfie videos. I shoot videos of myself playing guitar or singing and I've had to download google camera just for focus lock. Is there any way to lock focus and exposure when taking video on the stock camera app?

    While you record, a single tap on the screen where you want to focus will lock the AF system and exposure.

    The icon AF will be displayed in the top of the screen if you want to cancel.

    While you recoding a video Just a single tap on the screen will lock 🔐 the AF

    To disable the Lock just press the AF icon on the screen

  • Long press on the thing you want to lock focus on

  • Thanks everyone! I guess i wasnt pressing long enough. it would be nice to see some visual feedback on the screen.. currently the icon under your finger turns green but that isnt very helpful. a message saying "af locked" before i click record would be nice.

    In fact, there is a message "AF locked", but it appears 5 seconds once only.

    The green circle and the AF icon should guide you 👍
