I have a Milestone 2 with stock ROM, which I recently upgraded to official Gingerbread. Everything works nicely except for a glitch with the camera... Basically it goes like this:

  • I turn on the camera (I can hear some clicks as with the previous version)
  • I point the camera at something, then press the physical shutter button or the on-screen one, or simply wait a bit
  • The screen shuts down as if I had pressed the power off button (I mean that the screen just turns off, not that the whole phone turns off)

This happens quite randomly, but I think it never happens if I'm holding the phone in landscape mode... When it happens, it is always in portrait mode. I tried switching to another camera app but the problem is still there... Any idea?
