Camera mod? Button press...
I am looking for a way to Press the Button or take the picture with the volume key(s). If I want to turn the camera on myself and take a picture it is very hard to press the button.
And before I get the conceited comments- I have a 3 year old and a gazillion pictures with him in it alone... want to look back in the future and see his dear old dad in some of the pics with him!
Can someone recommend a mod or even an app that allows this functionality?
I contacted a couple of app developers from the app store about it that make camera apps but they do not seem interested in adding this because they are using it for zoom. Can't the settings have the option to switch to shutter instead of zoom?
Am I the only one that wants this?

Hyperactive 3yo ain't waitin for no timer!
I remember when an app developer for iPhone snuck in some code (to pass the app approval) into their camera app that allowed someone to go to their website and get a code to put in the app that allowed the volume button to be activated for the shutter.
They got away with it for a couple week and Apple found out and shut it down because your not allowed to modify system buttons.
The news made the rounds on the tech sites and it became a hugely sought after feature. Many people started jailbreaking that never JB before just to get that feature.
I would of thought Android world would of got hold of that idea and ran with it to put it in Apple's face. Guess not.

Not what I was looking for. The fact that you can choose to use either one of the volume button is cool, but I don't like the pic quality.
The thing is - If they(developer) can modify the volume buttons to use to capture pics, then can't they make an app with the same pic quality. Price doesn't matter to me. I would get it.

I just got word from the developer of "lgCameraPro" that he will add the ability to map the volume keys to the shutter button in the next release (in a few days).
lgCameraPro is a great picture/video app with many features - check it out in the market!

Try Vignette. It does what your looking to do and the picture quality looks fine to me. You are not forced to use any type of filter, although there are plenty available. Seems like a pretty good app. I'm still using the free demo version. I'm not sure what the $3.99 paid version contains that the demo doesn't, but I haven't missed the features, whatever they are.

One thing you could always do is flash Community Rom 2.1. They actually made it to where it is set to the power on/off button. I have felt your pain before. But now that I'm running the Community Rom, I don't have to worry about it. Just a suggestion, if you aren't afraid of doing some hacking.
