    Pressing on this icon will bring up the option to manually adjust the camera's focus.
    This may be necessary in situations with more depth. If there are objects in the foreground or background, adjusting the focus can help gain more clarity in the overall image. Sometimes the camera may not know what the central focus should be, the foreground or background. This option allows more precise control of that.
