    I don't think I've ever heard of a bug that fixes itself then breaks itself again, pretty hilarious.

    The reason for the lag is the time it takes to write the 5 megapixel image to the SD card. You can reduce it to 3 megapixel and it's quicker, or get a faster SD card.

    Well it's not actually fixed, it's just not happening right now. That type of thing actually happens quite often in software, but it's not usually on a fixed cycle like this. But it's common to have bugs seemingly disappear because the set of circumstances required to make them happen aren't occurring, only to have it come back when they do.

    For example, in one application I worked on, an error occurred at the beginning of the month if the first of the month was a Saturday ...or something like that. I forget the exact details.

    perhaps upgrading the sdcard from a class 2 to a class 6 might help as well.. I noticed it took alot longer to load my music onto the class 2 over the class 4 I had in my G1.. keep meaning to get myself a class 6 but I guess I'm just lazy.. lol..

    Interesting bug, glad to see the focus work. I agree with someone earlier about shutter lag, (not writing lag) in that it takes too long to actually snap the picture once it's focused. But still the pictures are not in focus. they are soft and a little blurry. Good phone, ok interface, crappy camera. Looking forward to droid 2.

    I'm not seeing the huge shutter lag on my Moto Droid cam. There is a write lag, but the 'shutter' is less than 1/2 second after the button. Is that a problem? Try taking a picture of a clock.

    On a different note but still on the camera subject...has anyone downloaded the PRO Zoom Camera 5X app and noticed the flash had a delay when the picture was snapped causing a dark image??

    I agree, mine will snap the picture quite quick, but the write lag is where it seems to be the problem. If you set the MP from 5 to 3 on the camera you will see that you can snap pictures alot quicker then before.
