    Lately occasionally when I launch Proshot or the camera app it just gives me a green screen, which is my theme color. I cannot take a picture,etc. When I reboot, its fine after that. Anybody else seen this?
    Thanks

    I have the same issue occasionally and I dont have photosynth. Reboot is the only fix I have figured out.

    My first and only complaint with my phone (8x) so far. This is very suboptimal...

    Yeah, rebooting the phone is the only thing I've found to fix it, but mine does it a lot less since the Photosynth update.
