    The camera button? I didn't know you could map that to any application. If so, that would be cool, since I would like to map it to be a pause/play toggle for audio playback like music or podcasts.

    Hey, that is cool! I had no idea it would actually launch the camera. I still would like to map it to do something else! :0)

    Go to the market and search for Button Shortcut. Works great to map the button to any app on your phone. You do still have to hold the button for a bit.
