Under what circumstances should the camera button launch the app? I'm finding that I cannot launch the camera using the hardware button while the phone is locked and asleep. It works fine when the phone is in use or if i tap the power button first (even if I don't unlock the device). Is this normal? I've checked through the settings and I believe that it should be working (press and hold to wake is on and accidental launch is off).

It has been hit or miss for me on my new Lumia as well as my original Focus. I just tested it and it didn't work if I locked and the phone and put it to sleep.
It doesn't bother me too much since it's so easy to just hit the power button and then the camera button (while still locked and everything).

Was just noticing this today.....really bothers me. My focus, titan and focus s operate properly, not sure why the Nokia doesn't. Very dissapointing since this is a big feature for this platform......now we're relegated to a firmware update

Mine works perfectly just like my Samsung Focus did. Make sure "Prevent accidental camera launch when phone is locked" is set to off and "Press and hold camera button to wake up the phone" is set to on under the pictures and camera settings.

I believe my Lumia 900 has a hardware glitch. The button is loose compared to the power and volume rocker. I can press mine and feel a click like it is pressing the button, but it doesn't activate the camera, I have to press it further down and I get a second click that activates it. This second click makes the button travel further than I think it should so I will exchange tomorrow morning.
Other than that, my first experience with WM7 is great.

It just won't work when the phone is locked and asleep (screen is off). :dry I did just try the setting changes/reboot trick that haleme mentioned to no avail.

I'm not half-holding the button, the button is being pressed all the way down, and the settings are correct. Also, my button is solid, and works fine in the camera app every time.
That being said, the camera waking from sleep sometimes works and sometimes doesn't for me as well.
