    With 4.0 to 4.0.2 the speed at which the iPhone 4 took pictures was amazing. Now with 4.1 it seems to take longer, not much longer but long enough that you can easily miss a shot.
    Even with HDR off it still takes some time to take a photo. On 4.0.1 I could take several photos super fast, but now the shutter comes over the screen for like a second which is much longer than before.
    I even tried to take a series of photos in quick succession and one turned out blank.
    Is it just me or is it just a result of 4.1 and the HDR feature (even though it's off)?

    Mine works fine taking pictures rapid fire with HDR off. Fractions of a second for the shutter on the screen. Have you tried restarting the phone yet?

    Yes mine is def slower

    Yes I totally agree I have tried restarting my phone and reinstalling 4.1 but nothing seems to work the camera app definitely takes longer to snap pictures in 4.1 NO DOUBT IN MY MIND because I take alot of pictures with my iphone 4 because of work. APPLE NEEDS TO FREAKING FIX THIS!!!!

    That's one thing I loved about the iPhone 4, the speed of the camera. It was the same on the 3GS I think.
    But it is quite annoying that the camera app has now slowed down with 4.1.

    Yeah, I've noticed a speed difference. I never had iOS 4.0.2, but only 4.0.1, and the camera shutter was definitely faster then. Even the launching of the Camera app seems to take a couple of seconds longer. *shrugs* :cool:

    just checked and mine is also slower. (this is with HDR turned off too)

    I checked the shutter on my Camera+ app and its the same speed as before.
    So i'm not sure whats happening..

    Hmmm... I know what you mean. My shutter has slowed down VERY slightly. Still takes photos 100x faster than my old 3G, so I'm still happy.
    Hopefully we see some improvements in 4.1.1, but I have no interest in downgrading again personally as I really find most of these slow downs to be pretty minor.

    I just replied in another thread about this. We have 2 running 4.0.2, the other running 4.1.

    My 4.1 is without a doubt slower than the 4.0.2.
