Question Video recording delay

Please Login to Remove!

Whenever I try to record with the video camera on my 8900 I have a 13 second delay from the press of the trackball to the the beginning of the recording. Is this something to do with the autofocus or is it a bug in my Blackberry? I would hate to miss a once in a lifetime, youtube worthy, newsbreaking event that only lasts 14 seconds.

I've tried a battery pull

I would do two things:

1. Set your "Left Side Convenience Key Opens" to "Video Camera" for quick launch directly to the cam corder.
2. Upgrade to 4.6.1.152 (that's what I have) which starts recording in about 1.5 seconds from trackball click.

Also, one more tip: when you are in the Video Camera application, click the menu and under options set the "Video Light" to ON. You will see a warning you that turning the Video Light ON will drain your battery life. Anyway, this will make you even more ready to capture video PLUS it works great for a flashlight!
