This is my first Blackberry, I bought the 9780 today. I was just testing all the features and the video camera works well but I tried using the normal camera and the pictures just don't take. The flash goes of, it zooms in and everything but when I press the button no picture is actually taken. If theres a simple fix that'd be great, let me know.

I'm getting the same problem and so is this owner: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-
At first I thought I must be doing something wrong but realise that it is a design or software fault. I'm sending mine back for a replacement but can't help wondering whether the new one will do the same. I'm missing many aspects of my problem free Nokia E71 but when i go back to it, it seems rather slow.

I had the same issue when I first got my 9780, it has OS 126.96.36.1995 loaded on it, I loaded OS 188.8.131.524 and the problem was gone.
OS 184.108.40.2064 is actually the best one currently available in terms of stability and speed.
