To exit ANY app, simply swipe up from the bottom of your screen, if you have rotated the device (which you have probably done in the camera) the bottom of your device moves, get it?
If you flip your device to the left the Blackberry logo is no longer the bottom the "left side" of the device is now the bottom.
Try it. it works, every time for me.

Now, I have already said that the swipe is not working and I do know how to use it(Edited)
Of course you should always swipe from down up towards the logo(edited)

I don't think it's any of your **bleep** business how much I complain.. the phone is full of bugs and I have the right to report whatever I want! If you don't like it, stop reading my posts.
Now, I have already said that the swipe is not working and I do know how to use it I not a Newby like u
Of course you should always swipe from down up towards the logo, it took u a while to figure that out? Waw
Plz, if u have something useful to say, say it. Otherwise, Plz move on
Nice post (edited), really like the "Bleeped" out language. I'll feed you, you are obviously hungry... :ROTFL:
If you can't see it from my posts I am actually trying to help you, so please open your mind and open your eyes and read and learn.
You clearly do not know how the gesture works judging by your post. You do not need to swipe from "down up towards the logo", which is EXACTLY why you are having issues.
Swipe from the bezel at the BOTTOM of the device (whichever side that happens to be in your current orentation) straight UP on to the screen. This WILL take you out of the camera in any orentation. It works every time for me, and probably everyone else in the entire universe that is using the gesture properly.
The only way that this won't work is if you have the orientation lock turned on, in which case the bottom of the device will be whereever the bottom was when you set the orientation lock.
FWIW... The only thing I am a newby at is being number one on the list of likes for this forum folder.. lol.
I hope that you do take the time to read this and that it gets the gesture working for you.

I know how gestures work.. i was not concentrating while I was typing.. so, that subject is closed... There is a bug in the phone camera and that's it.
