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.
    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.
    perhaps upgrading the sdcard from a class 2 to a class 6 might help as well.. I noticed it took alot longer to load my music onto the class 2 over the class 4 I had in my G1.. keep meaning to get myself a class 6 but I guess I'm just lazy.. lol..

    Interesting bug, glad to see the focus work. I agree with someone earlier about shutter lag, (not writing lag) in that it takes too long to actually snap the picture once it's focused. But still the pictures are not in focus. they are soft and a little blurry. Good phone, ok interface, crappy camera. Looking forward to droid 2.

    I'm not seeing the huge shutter lag on my Moto Droid cam. There is a write lag, but the 'shutter' is less than 1/2 second after the button. Is that a problem? Try taking a picture of a clock.

    On a different note but still on the camera subject...has anyone downloaded the PRO Zoom Camera 5X app and noticed the flash had a delay when the picture was snapped causing a dark image??

    I agree, mine will snap the picture quite quick, but the write lag is where it seems to be the problem. If you set the MP from 5 to 3 on the camera you will see that you can snap pictures alot quicker then before.
    Resistance is futile.

    I picked up my DROID on the 18th so I missed out on the 'secret' camera fix. LOL. Snapping pics is a lil slow.... but as New2u said if you set the MP to 3 instead of 5 you gain some quickness. I'm actually very happy with the camera.

    arg this tiks me off about the droid. people what is the point of having 5MP if you are going to set it to 3MP like the iphone has? part of the "DroidDoes" is 5MP not 3MP so we should be able to use it as is without a super long refresh lag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
