The camera icon is in the APP tray, The button is on the display like the D1 was. D1 you swiped your phone open one way turned off sound the other. D4 the other way R > L opens the camera (which I thought was pretty cool) I previously had droid 1 as well. The pictures come out better larger with the 1080p all the HD stuff. Zoom doesn't look as fuzzy as the D1. a facing camera as well and some extra's; effects, panoramas, timer multi-picture taking several pics at once The video you can actually turn on the light now. Video also has a stabilizer haven't tried that yet. And again opening up the key board you can press and hold the OK button.
