    Default Camera problems

    I've been enjoying my Droid X - so far. But I'm having a problem with the camera. Instead of taking a photo, holding down the button turns the center square green and it beeps 2 times. No curtain or circle animation, and no picture. Any idea what is going on?

    Its a two step camera button. Hold the button down lightly to focus (if focused successful, there are two beeps and a green focus box). Push harder on the button to take photograph.

    I have an actual problem where when I first open the camera, about 50% of the time its blacked out. Once I switch to video mode the sensor turns on, then I can switch back. Pretty annoying

    Does anyone know if there is a setting to activate an on-screen button you can push to take a pic like on the D2?

    Not currently with the stock app. I use Vignette, which is taking better pictures for me, and lets you take photos by tapping on the screen.

    I am also using Vignette and feel like the quality is improved.

    +1 for Vignette.

    Screw that stock camera app and buggy hard button. It looked good on paper but in reality the press to focus and press a bit more to shoot sucks - it's fine on my Nikon D50 dslr but it's not-so-great on my Droid X. So many blurry pics because of it.

    Vigenette is well worth the $4.77 price of admission.

    Thanks for the answer, and the suggestions about Vignette. I also purchased the soft skin from Verizon, and it doesn't have a cutout for the camera button. This it turned out was making the button less responsive. But I'm definitely going to look at Vingette.

    I got the soft skin from VZW as well and i take it off when I want to use the camera. It is a PITA to deal with.

    I too am using the soft skin from VZ. I have considered using the Dremel to grind out the volume (zoom) and shutter release (red button) nipples on the rubberized skin to give me unobstructed access to the Dx buttons.

    I am using the VZW skin also.

    I have no qualms with the Volume buttons, I have found the the camera button is not correct on mine, I actually have to press with a little aft pressure. Not quite "ON" the button but a little behind it.
