This is a standard feature in iPhone I believe (and very convenient). Any reason why this is not available on Jolla ?

Shutter is piloted by the Volume buttons.

camera trigger with volume button ist better than nothing, but if you ask a non jollauser to take a picture with your jolla, the first thing happens is the jolla gets powered off. I would appreciate the powerbutton as camera trigger, (as long the camera app is in foreground); if this is not possible, at least disable powerbutton in cameramode. (or show a countdown when switching off like in the picture-deleting-process)

You are able taking pictures with both volume buttons so I don't see any reason to add this functionality also to the power button.
