Re: Camera Flash?

My problem is that it seems to "blink" or flash several times which confuses the subjects being pictured and they always move too soon.

Re: Camera Fla

I don't know about you guys, but the camera is woefully slow; almost to a point that when I tried to take a picture at halftime, it finally clicked by the end of the game.  (Maybe not that bad...but you get the point...)

Re: Camera Fla

I agree to the fact that the camera shutter is very slow.  Tried to take pictures of my granddaughter during Xmas, but by the time the shutter snapped and the flash went off, she was in an entirely different pose.  Hope Blackberry improves this slowness a lot.

Re: Camera Fla

I absolutely agree...I think it is regretful that BB didn't improve upon this feature when they released the phone. Most people use their camera phones to the point of exhaustion and it would have been nice if the bugs had been tweaked when they released the phone.  When I was "demo-ing" the phone at the VZ store, I mentioned the problem to the clerk and he told me that it would be fixed in a software update; but why hasn't it yet been fixed?
