Default Delay timer on taking photo's ?

Please Login to Remove!

HEllo, does anyone know of a way of adding a delay when taking photo's ?

I have a Curve 8520 & when you press the camera button its so hard to press you move the camera & that results in a poor picture due to movement.

I'd like to pres the button & have a 2 sec delay while I steady it.


Does anyone know if this is programmable somewhere or if there is an app for it?

Thankyou.

It is not an available setting native to the 8520.

I dont see the option on any BB. Rim does have information on adjusting the shutter speed to compensate for movement

Cheers, Ihave since found that the app "mycamera" also controls the shutter speed.

However I do not want to pay $5 just for that.

IMO the camera on these is naff, the pictures are too blurred due to movement.

Seems like a cheap price to pay to solve your problem....If it works.

If you want a full-featured digital camera, buy one. That's the reality of the situation. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
