    Umm Idk if Im doing something wrong when taking pictures but my shutter seems to take forever before it finally decides to go. Is there anything to do about this?

    Get a different camera app. Camera Zoom FX is popular. Turn down the megapixels used for the pictures to as low as you can tolerate, like 2 megapixels.

    The stock camera app does not allow you to take lower megapixel pix and bigger pix take longer to save, slowing the camera

    Short of downloading a third-party camera app, no.

    Look around the Market for something that looks good to you and see what suits your needs. I use CamScanner because I rarely need to take pictures quickly and I like being able to take decent pictures of documents (comes in handy sometimes).

    I'm sure there's an app that will modify your camera to your liking. You might have to try out a few different apps to get what you want, but you'll find something.

    You can press and hold the camera button which will do the autofocus and release when you want to take the picture. This cuts down on the lag time quite a bit, the previous posts are correct, probably best to download a third party camera app.
