The greatest asset to the smart phone I used was the ability to scan a business card to my contacts or scan and email a document.
The @$*%! camera on my new Galaxy tab 2 7.0 w/ICS does not focus with Card scan or Cam Scanner.
Holding the button for 2 seconds does nothing.
Does anyone know of a working doc or business card program, or how to focus this thing.

Google for 'Galaxy Tab 2 Camera Auto Focus'
shows neither the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 or the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has Auto Focus

"But the camera-unit has been compromised as the auto-focus has been done-away with to accommodate a fixed-focus 3mp unit and there is no LED-flash to assist it."

I try to use the barcode scanner app. But it never worked.
Is there something wrong with the quality of the camera? because it seems hard to focus on the barcode and get a clear picture of the barcode.
Does anyone have problem using Barcode Scanner?

Here is a "fix" which makes it possible to use the Galaxy Tab 2.0 as a barcode scanner. Basically, you need a magnifying glass. You hold the glass against the tablet camera lens, and then move the tablet close to the barcode (or qr code). I use a 5x glass, but suspect a 2x or 3x would work too. I'm using "QR BARCODE SCANNER", but suspect this works with most any scanner. I end up holding the tablet 2 to 5 inches from the barcode. If you use a 3X glass, you will have to hold the tablet farther from the barcode.

The glass only needs to be big enough to cover the camera lens, and so you can get a small pocket magnifier. Since the camera is fixed focus, you can focus on the barcode by simply adjusting how close you hold the tablet to the barcode. The tablet will read the barcode very quickly as you move it into focus, so you don't need to work hard at focusing.

The 5x lens works very well for the usual size barcodes which are one or two inches wide. For larger labels with 4 inch wide barcodes (like a shipping labels), you may need 3x or 2x.

Note added Feb 26:
Today I received an 8x lens, and because glass is closer to the camera, I have successfully scanned even larger labels. So, apparently you can use higher power lenses than 5x. Here is the 8x one (SE Folding Magnifier 8X):

This will fit very nicely in a pocket.

I have the AT&T scanner app and it works fairly well. I still have to move it in and out sometimes to get it to work.

I am looking for a QR reader that works on my Galaxy Tab 2 (GT-P3113). Tried several, so far none will read the code. Anyone know if the GT2's camera is the issue? Would like to hear if anyone has gotten their GT2 to work with a QR code.

You could also try QRDroid, available from the Play store. I use it quite often.

How about trying to use another barcode scanner? I do not have any problem using barcode scanner.
