    Is there a manual focus overide button so you can decide whether you want the camera to focus at 1 feet, 5 feet, 20 feet or infinity...or similar choices?

    Relying on auto focus makes the camera do the thinking and sometimes the camera does not think to focus at the same distance the user wants to focus on...

    That's a great question Alpha. I was wondering the same thing myself. I am still worried about the granularity as well. This 24.5 day thing had no effect on that, as we thought it would not.

    A manual focus option would be great to have. I hope V, Moto and google are listening!

    I've played briefly with the iphone and droid camera and video camera.

    Both units seem to prefer that you stay at approx 1 foot or farther from the subject you are photographing. If you move closer, the subject will be out of focus.

    Shutter lag

    Personally I think this camera is only borderline usable as the shutter lag is ridiculously long. Something needs to be done about that. I realize that this is not a dedicated camera and that I'm not supposed to expect the same type of image quality as a dedicated camera would produce. However the fact that the image capture takes place about 15 seconds after I press the button is rather unforgivable to me. I do not expect the image to be on the flash card right away, but I do expect the image to be captures when I press the button, not at a random time later. How often do you need to take a picture of a static environment? You're usually take pictures of people. A human being could do quite a bit in the 15 seconds it takes to capture the image.

    Well I'll be...

    Thanks for clearing up the issue. Anyone else think that might be the reason the OTA update is scheduled for Dec. 11th? Verizon knows they need to push that fix before the next "bad" cycle, but wants to give themselves as much time as possible to fix other issues before the update.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a bug that fixes itself then breaks itself again, pretty hilarious.

    The reason for the lag is the time it takes to write the 5 megapixel image to the SD card. You can reduce it to 3 megapixel and it's quicker, or get a faster SD card.

    Well it's not actually fixed, it's just not happening right now. That type of thing actually happens quite often in software, but it's not usually on a fixed cycle like this. But it's common to have bugs seemingly disappear because the set of circumstances required to make them happen aren't occurring, only to have it come back when they do.

    For example, in one application I worked on, an error occurred at the beginning of the month if the first of the month was a Saturday ...or something like that. I forget the exact details.
