    Another thing (beside LED notification) I cannot find on the body of my Cappy: the button to start camera instantly. I came from Motorola Milestone (left to my wife) where button dedicated to camera was obvious.
    Anyone knows if any of outside buttons can be used as bringing camera in?

    Just an icon on the display itself. I have it on my dock for quick access.

    Once the camera is fired up, the shutter is also on the display. The power/sleep button becomes a "lock" so that you can keep camera mode active without accidentally backing out, etc,. which is pretty handy, especially if you want to stick the phone in camera mode in your pocket.

    I don't miss having a dedicated camera button at all. With my Blackberry, I was always snapping pictures accidentally when pulling it out of the holster.

    DT, thanks for the tip about the camera lock. I didn't know about that handy tip.
