    The camera clicking is hardware related, but the inability to focus at times is software related. Everyone just needs to check the camera function for the clicking problem before leaving the store on Friday. The software issues will be addressed soon with an update hopefully.

    There is another thread that posts two videos. You can hear 4 clicks just before the camera clicking quickly trying to focus but failing.

    Good question. Definitely listen to the videos and try the phones out in the store.

    I'm pretty bummed about it but oh well. I can wait a few months.

    Seeing as this is not a primary reason that i'm getting the phone, i will check it out in the store, and if it doesn't click i will buy it and wait for software updates. no biggie here.

    That's why Moto shipped the devices. They don't want to take the cost hit because they knew many would just deal.

    I thought this thread was going to be really long. That's why I don't work in the corporate world

    Checking on any new information about this. 12/4/09

    I've had my droid for about a week now and just started using the camera. I noticed the clicking sound immediately and thought it wouldn't work at all. But the camera seems to work fine. But I'm not sure if I should be worried about the mechanical clicking sound when the camera starts coming up. :eek:

    Does anyone have any updates about this or can the new OTA update cure this problem??:unsure:
