    Is it just me or is the "shutter" speed way faster with iOS4. It seems to be near instant now when taking a picture.

    EDIT: It seems to be just on the 3GS and presumably on the iPhone 4. I installed iOS4 on my dads 3G and it is the same as before.

    Sweet! I haven't tried it yet. I'm sure it'll be even faster on iphone 4.

    Yeah....much much faster...instant like u said

    Also, tap to focus is great during videos. U can even do it during the actual recording process.

    The camera shutter is MUCH faster on my 3GS. But better yet....

    Have you guys tried to E-mail a photo you've taken with the camera yet? The Mail app gives you a choice of four sizes to send the photo... Small, Medium, Large or Original!

    VERY nice feature!!

    They aren't really referring to the shutter speed - as in exposure time - but the shutter lag which is the time between when the button is pressed and the picture is taken.

    This. I just said "shutter" because of the animation that is used.

    Noticed the shutter animation lag or lack there of right away. I love it.

    I just installed iOS 4 on my 3G and the camera app lags out and shows an iAd advertising iPhone 4. :p

    When I got my iPhone 4, taking photos was fast- almost instant. A couple of my friends accidentally threw my bag around, and it shattered inside. I got it replaced at apple, and got a refurbished one. Now, when I take photos, its not instant. It lags for about .5 of a second to 1 second long, and its really annoying now. Have done a couple of restores, and updated to 4.1 but still no luck. The shutter closes and opens slower than other iPhone 4's i've played with...:confused: Can anyone help me here?
