Is it possible to have a shortcut to the camcorder, not the camera?

If your camcorder icon is going to your camera, something is wrong with that icon. Factory reset would probably clear it up.
Are you running the leaked 2.2? If you are, then all bets are off, and you are on your own.
I have both a camera & camcorder icon on the home screen of my X. (rooted running 2.2 Froyo)
The camcorder icon opens the camcorder directly, there is no 2nd step involved.
