    Assign "take picture" to a physical button

    I believe I've read on here that this isn't possible, but wanted to double check. Can I do it?

    You can set the side button to open the camera app, but you can't actually use it to trigger the shutter.

    The RETRO CAMERA app allows you to assign

    The RETRO CAMERA app allows you to assign a new shutter button...but you can only take pictures through that app using the new assigned button.

    It would be nice to be able to apply that functionality to the stock camera app. So many buttons on this phone and we have to use the screen to snap a pic...lol.

    You actually can....with Big Camera Button Lite

    Download "Big Camera Button Lite" from the market and you can just touch the screen anywhere to take a picture. SO COOL!
