Default [Q] Camera button not working properly?

I was playing with the camera on my Z2 and noticed that the dedicated camera shutter button wasn't working. I press the button, it focuses, and the button on the side disappear as if it were about to take the picture, but it just stays that way until I release the button. When I release the button, no picture is taken and it unfocuses and the buttons come back.

My phone is bootloader unlocked, rooted, and I removed some things via Titanium Backup. Did I somehow remove a piece of software needed to use the button correctly?

Any help is appreciated.

Are you awear that it is a two stage button

Soft press for focus
Hard click for snap picture

When you focus the Overlay is removed for better view
You could use the onscreen buttons if this isnt the case

This could be a firmware or hardware issue
I need more details to conform

You can not remove of Firmware that manages the camera button however you can delete the camera

Unlocked bootloaders should have no affect on anything at all besides the usual bravia / x reality

Same goes for root

I have same issue. Dont know it was like this on stock kernel/locked BL, sometimes it works, i think it is matter off delay.

D6503 Rooted, bootloader unlocked
FW .402, doomlord kernel v09

EDIT: on my case it was fault of Xposed Additions plugin
