Bug Description

It's almost impossible to take quick snapshots with locked phone: Swiping, pine code, launching the photo app just takes way too long. The fascinating scene you wanted to photograph is long gone until the photo app is ready. Therefore the lock screen should contain an easy to hit button that instantly starts the photo app, ready for taking the snapshot of the year. Android and iOS show how to do this.

if implemented, this lock screen camera option shouldn't have a slide from right to go to "Photo Roll" option we see in the camera app to maintain user's privacy

I think photo roll should be possible too, but only the photos you just made in the "quick snapshot" mode. Otherwise you can't verify, that the photo was done correct.
