Autofocuses in 0.3 seconds
Most smartphones require 0.6 to 0.8 seconds to focus – that's critical time lost when you're shooting on-the-go.

But the closed-loop system can communicate the motor location to the focusing system,
Shoot first, focus later
Blurry photos? Not a problem! Now you can adjust the focal point even after you've taken the photo with Magic Focus. This allows you to switch the area of focus in the photo from one object to another retrospectively. Depth of field and bokeh effects can also be adjusted afterwards. With unlimited possibilities, it's time to get creative.
Hit a moving target
Tracking autofocus locks on to fast-moving objects
Whether you're shooting at a sports event or tracking a moving animal, how do you capture fast movement on your phone? With Touch-To-Track technology, it's simple. Gently slide your finger to select and lock on to the object you wish to track. Mi 4 will then automatically adjust the focal point and calculate the exposure. It's a function you might previously have found only in professional cameras but with Mi 4, it's right there in your pocket.
