    Is it possible to assign another button to take the picture other than the trackball button? would really love it if we could use for e.g the volume buttons to take the pictures, it would make it so much easier.

    i think that you can change the button on the standard camera app but you would need root access to achieve this.

    Using the standard camera that comes with the Desire you can touch the screen to take a picture.

    Touch the screen for about a second or so on the object you want the camera to focus on. The camera will then focus and take the picture.

    I much prefer this method to using the trackball button.

    Not exactly what you were asking for but it's worth a try as an alternative to the button :)
