    Hi Every1,

    I just got my BB 9800 yesterday and assigned the convinience key openen: Camera (default).

    When I press the key it focuses the picture but does not open the camera itself.

    Anyone knows how i can use the key to actually open the camera?

    thank in advance,

    A.Pablo

    Depress the key firmly. There is a second click to actually take the picture.

    It would have been awful if RIM put a button on the outside that was too easy to press causing you to activate the functionality when not intended (unlock key: I'm looking at you).

    The reason it's a two-step button is because a half press will do the autofocus and the full press takes the picture, just like any camera made in the past 25+ years, it has nothing to do with making it harder to accidentally press.

    On the homescreen, All or Favorites, select the camera icon.
