    Camera App


    How come the camera app lags if I go to like 1200x800 or more.. I got a beast machine. Also, how do you take a picture with the camera app? The button on my webcam does nothing and I'd rather use a software button.

    the software may not be optimised for the hardware that you have. To take a picture I believe you just tap the screen? Try using the software supplied by the manufacturer as it may be optimised to deal with higher resolutions!
