    Or are you forced to use the dedicated hardware camera button every time? HW buttons are fine in certain situations, but the SW button takes pics much faster. I hope you have option for both on the 920. Also is this behavior uniform across all Windows Phone 8 devices or is each handset different?

    The new feature in wp8 though is that you can start video recording with a tap. On wp7, it requires the camera button.

    Agreed. In WP7.5, still pictures can be taken by tapping the screen (when the option is turned on), but video recording starts/ends with the physical camera button-press.
