    I want to use this phone as a digital camera replacement. However when I turn on tehcamera, the power button turns into a "lock" button. There's no way to turn off the screen. So first I have to hit the home key. Then it takes about 8 seconds for the camera to disable before it returns to the home screen. Only then can I shut the phone using the power key. Then if I want to use the camera, I have to turn on the screen and relaunch the camera app. This feels completely wrong to me and makes it hard to use as a pure digital camera.

    Am I imissing something?

    Thanks

    No way to do it with the stock camera, but you could download Camera360 from the Market (or something similar). The full version (which you'll need to take standard photos) is like 3 bucks...but it will let you "sleep" your screen and quickly restart. It also has other effect filters and such.

    Another benefit is you can use the after market camera apps when the battery drops < 15%.
