Is anyone else annoyed with how slow the camera app opens? If you want to take a quick pic then those 2-4 seconds it takes for the app to launch can be precious.

While annoying, your phone is designed to do a zillion things. Make calls. Text. Surf the web. Taking photos is a plus. We have cameras that take pics quickly. Remember ten years ago we didn't have cameras in our phone.
I am happy that I have the ability to take photos at all on my phone. I'll happily wait the annoying 2 to 4 seconds for the app to open.

I've been noticing a lag in the camera app recently also. Not so much when I open it up but inbetween pics. It seems to freeze up on me for a few seconds.

If you're jailbroken you can download SNAPPY from cydia, all you do is open SBSettings and you're ready to take a pic in one second. Other than that 2-4 seconds is about right.

@Afkamp, I notice the same thing when my camera is not running in the background...its never "instant" mind you but if it is running in the system, I find it starts a little quicker
