    My friend's iPhone did this and I thought it was a bug

    There is also a Flickr page dedicated to iPhone photos where you toss the iPhone in the air at the same moment you take the picture. Creates really cool visuals. (just make sure to CATCH the phone - this is a very dangerous hobby)

    This is the only thing I could find:

    Looks like its a process for ANY camera being tossed in the air. But, I swear I watched a podcast where the host was doing this with her iPhone.

    From the link, it suggests airplane propellers. I took this a few weeks ago myself....very cool effect.

    I think the one of the reasons for this is that there is no buffer. A lot of inexpensive cameras will do this kind of thing. You actually see the effect will previewing - how the images bends as you move the camera. My Aiptek video recorder does the same thing in the pictures and the even in the videos.

    As to the shutter going off unexpectedly, it doesn't trigger until you let go of the button. I have had good results by holding the button and then letting go when I want t snap the picture.
