    I've searched but I couldn't find anything about this. I've assigned the Nokia camera (pro?) app to the shutter button. It works fine when my phone is unlocked but if it's in a locked state and I try to open up just the camera to take a pic, it asks for pw before it allows me into the app. The stock (WP8?) camera app does allow taking of photos but requires pw unlock to review photos which I'm perfectly fine with but not allowing me to just take a pic sucks... is there an option to change this besides removing my pw lock? TIA!

    +1, I imagine it is due to it not having the privileges of the built-in camera

    That was what I was thinking as well... but with the access Nokia has, should've been easy to change/make happen. Well now that MS bought Nokia, hope it gets "fixed".

    By the looks of things Black fixes this, see reply from Juha at bottom of the Twitter conversation. Maybe someone with a 1520 can confirm?

    Black can't come sooner!

    My workaround is to have the option to ask for password only after 25 minutes, because I pretty much look at my phone every 20 min. I never see the password. lol

    Same, I set passwords for 15 minutes, so I rarely have to enter password when using the camera.
