I think if you have an application which makes use of the camera, this 
is exactly the button you want to use. Only thing I´m not sure about is 
whether or not it is possible to deactivate the launching of the camera 
app which happens if you push the button.

The button has to states. First, you press it a bit only, this activates 
the autofocus if your´re in the camera app. Otherwise it just sends a 
dbus message. Then you can press it down completely which takes a 
picture if your´re inside the camera app or opens the camera app if it´s 
not open yet.
