    Well... the quality may be good, but it takes 4-5 seconds to snap a picture. That's hardly realistic. I tried using this camera at a party this weekend it was a real drag. Anyone else having this kind of problem. How long does it take for your phone to snap the photo after you press the button?

    For me, with Flash set to AUTO, it does seem to take a second or two.

    Setting Flash to ON made it quicker. Turning flash OFF when there was enough ambient light was almost instant.

    I'm sure this can improve with a software update.

    Its not 4-5 secs. Maybe 2-3. Yeah, would be nice if it was instant like iPhone...or phones from 8 years ago. Still faster and better quality than Blackberry though. ;)

    For a new top of the line phone. I must admit it takes too long to snap a photo.

    Just switching from BB (Storm 2) to D3 - less than a week.

    My D3 camera takes a full 7 seconds after pressing camera icon before it is ready to take a picture.

    Shutter lag is annoying.

    Sorry, but my BB was better than this in the speed area.

    But the D3 pictures are much nicer - and that is what it is all about, after all.

    My first camera phone from 6 years ago snapped instantly. Don't care if it was a lower quality pic. This is still crap IMO.

    Try taking pics of children. A few seconds of stillness is not possible.

    I've taken some real nice pics with this ya they are kinda blue but look good. Mine snaps fairly quick but works for me. My pics that I've taken at night with the flash has turned out way better then my droid x. Here's a pic that I've taken at night in my living room. No lights but with my tv on but still really dark

    It's a phone, not a camera. Try turning the flash on or off, and taking it off auto flash, seems to speed things up a bit. Sure it could snap photos faster, but they'd be blurry and unfocused, pick your poison.

    Its a smartphone, not a phone.

    And yet the iPhone, which everyone is quick to attack...can snap pics instantly with great quality.

    very aggravated at the fact that a year and a half old iphone blows these new device cameras out of the water... one of the bigger fails of moto's handsets.
