Anyone realise that if you use Nokia Pro Cam as the default cam app, [when screen is off and phone is pin locked] if you want to capture a photo by pressing the camera button, you cant straightly capture. instead you need to unlock the phone then the cam app launch. So this requires two steps (1) unlock (2) capture.

But if you use the Camera (buit in app) as you choice, when pressing the camera button will launch the camera quickly even if the phone is locked. This is one button to capture and it is fast :)

I want to use Nokia Pro as the cam apps and launch quickly even if the phone is locked. I am pretty sure this can be fixed?

There are OS limitations according to reviews I have seen that mention the unlock requirement for Pro Cam. I actually leave mine set to the default app so I can unlock and get the quick shot with out Pro Cam's startup delay. If you need to go pro or have time to unlock, just lens over from there; you'll be prompted for the PIN then.

Hasle? Maybe, but livable. Perhaps an update to the OS will allow Nokia's app to run in unlock like the native app, but it must have to do with how Pro Cam accesses the gallery.

Not only Amber - since after Mango you will always have to use PIN to launch a lens. When you use Pro Cam as default you are still launching a lens by default and hence the behaviour.
