I would like to record some movie on my desk but camera doesn't focus so I would like to force my phone to camera focus. Is it possible?

if you know the exact position to touch for focusing the camera, you can use adb shell input tap <x><y> . This will simulate a touch on the particular (x,y) cordinates.

i would recommend you to download some camera manipulation app like Vintage Camera by Fine Droid Devs

though it would have been better if you had mentioned your device.

Before you take a video, focus the camera first.

I had a similar issue with a digital camera (Canon S95). Sometimes, I'd get a blurry video. It turns out that I forgot to focus the camera first, before pressing the record button. The concept would be the same with a phone camera.
