Default Quick access camera from lock screen

To access camera on lock screen, I need to disable secure lock such as pattern lock or pin code lock so I can access camera from lock screen. Otherwise, it will unlock and ask for code to unlock before start camera. This annoy me.

If it possible to access camera from lock screen in case to enable pin code locked?

I remember that HTC incredible S ui can access camera from lock screen directly even the phone was enabled pin code lock.

Bump this post.
I have corporate security on my Note 2, and I am unable to access Camera while locked. However you can do this on the Iphone. My policy administrator says it is a bug in the Android system. I have root, so I should be able to adjust anything. Anyone know where to make the change so that I can use my camera without unlocking my phone?
