Using Volume Buttons As Camera Shutter May Be Possible?
You can see that the hand model actually has their finger over one of the volume buttons. I also tried using puppet warp to move the thumb to the soft shutter button, and guess what, there is no way that thumb is reaching there.
Do you think this means we'll finally be able to use one of the volume buttons as a shutter release? I think it's very likely because the rocker was much more convenient for just volume, but to have programmable or dual-purpose buttons, the rocker would be unacceptable for Apple.

I think it would be a genius move to be able to use the volume as the shutter button.
But...I think Apple would have said something, or all of those people that got to do the hands on after the keynote would have noticed.
Or it'd be listed somewhere on their site.
I think if it's not there at the release, Apple will add it into the OS later on.

Also, Apple has been known to keep some features on the down low even though they are present. Once we get iPhone 4 shipped, I guarantee people will find a ton of new features they never talked about, and that weren't present in OS4 for 3GS.

Having the sleep button as the shutter wouldn't work because Apple doesn't like inconsistent actions, and also because your finger would probably half-cover the lens when you press the button.
