    Hey everyone. Um, My Droid 3 , am I the only one who whenever I go to take a picture, it can take up to 30 seconds to snap? Sometimes it will be relativley fast, but other times it takes forever. And it also lags like this sometimes when I go to open up a app. Is there a reason for this? I sometimes wish it was simple and easy like the iPhone.

    My wife's has said the same thing about her Droid 3. I have been trying to find the reason for this for a few days now. She has tried different 3 party apps to see if that changes the results but nothing yet. The camera is a big thing to her too so I would like to find solution to this as well.

    Ya this is a huge problem accross the board with the droid3, I believe there are developers working on solutions if you are into rooting/flashing the phone but nothing to stable yet (to my knowledge)

    Otherwise there is an App called "fast burst camera" I like it alot, its very speedy, it does cut down on the quality of the picture, but if that's not a big deal its a great alternative to the stock camera

    Hope that helps -there are several threads about this topic in the droid 3 ROMS section

    Prior to rooting my phone and adding some hacks, I had great success with Camera FX and Power Zoom 5X. Try them both as I found they take very different pictures - particularly in terms of brightness/light. But I found both of them much faster than the native camera app. YMMV!

    Just installed Fast burst on my wife's phone and OMG that thing works nice. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Another thing to try is to turn off widescreen in the settings. In other words, change from 6 MP wide screen to 8 MP. See if it responds better.

    That said, I always use Camera Zoom FX or HDR Camera+ and both apps work great.

    Great find on the Fast Burst Camera!! I absolutely love it. I think this will allow me to get a decent photo of my Italian Greyhound!! She is never still. :)

    Fast burst decreases quality

    Yes I know, and I said that on the original post, its actually a very significant decrease, but it would only make sense as to why it can shoot so quickly

    The Atrix hack might work on a clean rooted phone, I personally am running Steel Droid and the hack does not work

    Did you push the ATRIX cam and set permissions correctly?

    I personally have not tried it, I was told by ChevyCam (the developer of Steel Droid) that it doesn't work with the particular ROM

    I have found that if you press and hold the button to take a picture and then release when you are ready, the lag is much less than if you just tap the button.
