Odd Camera glitch
Has anyone experienced this problem. I start the camera, take a couple of consecutive shots, then the camera freezes on the third or fourth shot and keeps the last picture on the screen for a while. You can still go to the home screen and when you go back to the camera the screen is black and unresponsive. eventually, after cycling back between the home screen and camera it works again. It's almost like the camera gets bogged down and stuck while it processes. Any ideas? I still love the phone coming from BB and hate the battery!!! Can't wait for the 2100mah battery to come out.

I had this problem as well (no memory card, just internal storage) after taking a few pics here and there throughout the day. It would then only work about 10% of the time for the next full day, I just about gave up on the camera (and camcorder).
But I found a solution (at least a temporary one): Completely reboot the phone. And if that doesn't work: Connect your phone to your computer and take any pictures off of it you want, then delete the DCIM folder, then reboot the phone.
Once I did that the camera has worked flawlessly with the exception of the first time after deleting the folder, which may have been due to its confusion that the folder was gone (maybe, I don't know).

This happened to me today. I was walking a job site and was taking several photos.
After about 3, it froze up. Then I went to the home screen and restarted the camera. Took about 3 more and wham, it happened again.
This occurred 3 times.
I will try deleting the DCIM file and see how that works.

For whatever it's worth I'm using the stock 8GB card that came in the Storm1's and everything set as high quality as possible. After 5 pictures in a row mine camera didn't freeze up at all.The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)NEXUS!!!!!!
