    Is there a 5 or 10-second timer on the microsoft camera app? It's the only camera app I have on there.

    Don't want store apps. Can't see why a camera app would want my personal identification etc. just to take pics.

    These Requires/Permissions are getting out of control.

    Nope, they don't, forgot to mention it is Blu Jr. So I doubt the Lumia camera app will work on even if I did sign up.

    Seriously? I get righton this and sign up - NOT!
    App requires
    video and still capture <-- OK
    phone identity <-- WHY?
    owner identity <-- WHY?
    video and still capture <-- OK ??
    location services <-- WHY?
    music library <-- WHY?
    photos library <-- WHY?
    media playback
    microphone
    data services <-- WHY?
    movement and directional sensor <-- WHY?
    VOIP calling <-- WHY?
    web browser component <-- WHY?
