Are the Intel RealSense serious support Manual focus?

For example, if i am capturing, can I manually focus another point by some (sdk) functions? 

Thanks for your help.

Hello Ninja,

RealSense cameras are fixed focus cameras so you cannot change the focus manually. The RealSense R200 camera supports refocusing through the Enhanced Photo and Video (EPV) API described here: https://software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/realsense/camera-sdk/v1.1/documentation/html/index.html?doc_epv_enhanced_photography_features.html. It allows you to programmatically change the focus on a captured image. You can also find a code sample that implements many of the EPV features here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-realsense-camera-r200-enhanced-photography-code-sample.

The SDK does not provide a mechanism for changing focus during capture.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like further assistance, please post your question in the RealSense Community. This forum in the Intel Developer Zone will soon be archived and all support will be handled in RealSense Community.
