    This seems like such a simple thing, that it should have been this way right out of the box.

    This is exactly what I'm looking for too. It's kind of a PITA to have to press that button on the screen, makes me shake the phone.

    I'd like to see this as well. Too bad you have to touch the screen to focus though. Maybe you could make the first press of the Volume Up button the focus and the second press the shutter release.

    The CameraZOOM app will let you do that. Its all customizable. I have volume up to cycle flash modes and volume down to take the picture.
