    I hate having to use the touch screen to take pictures. (I am coming from a droid x) I was wondering if it is possible to make it so the power button or even the volume button snapped a picture? Thanks.

    You're in luck, it's built into ICS. Press volume down + power simultaneously for about a quick 2 count. The pic will snap.

    edit: i see you mean a general pic rather than a screenshot. Hmm, I wonder if there's an app for that?

    All that does it take a screen shot. So inturn I can see the camera settings and everything. I want the power button to work the shutter.
