    The new iOS 5 allows you to use the volume up button as a shutter release for the camera. However, I am finding that with my case on my phone (gel case from Rocketfish that covers the volume buttons), when I try to use the volume button as a shutter release, my picture are fuzzy. I think the effort needed to press the volume button results in my phone shaking/moving as I take the picture.

    I would really like to use the volume button to take pictures. It just feels more natural. I could take off the case, but I like the protection. I was just wondering if anyone else is having an issue with this. Also, there are cases with cutouts around the volume buttons and mute switch, which may solve my problem. Any recommendations on a good one?

    Can you provide pictures with and without the case on?

    I'm guessing that the motion of pressing the button causes a shake right as the photo's being taken, so you're getting blur.
