Add the screenshot cabability on Windows Phone 8 to Windows Phone 7.8
Please add the screenshot capability (Windows key + camera button) on Windows Phone 8 to Windows Phone 7.8. This is an extremely useful tool, and adding it to 7.8 would be awesome!
We are truly floored by the number of feature suggestions that we have received and the excitement about future Windows Phone releases. Some of you have been wondering, “Will Windows Phone 7.8 have the same features as in Windows Phone 8?” The answer, unfortunately, is no. Windows Phone 8 is a generation shift in technology, which means that it will not run on existing hardware. BUT we care deeply about our existing customers and want to keep their phones fresh, so we’re providing the new Start screen in the upcoming 7.8 update. We’ll have more to share on the Windows Phone 7.8 update in the coming weeks.

Decline! Way to loose existing customers Microsoft. By not give your customers something other OS have stated as being very simple you have made yourself look like you have no clue what you are doing.
A good advices
I cannot believe this is declined. How MS expects me to support Windows Phone when it does not have such basic function, well according to iPhone and Android? What a joke.

For us reviewers it's a pain in @$$ to demonstrate particular functionality of WP7.5 in reviews. We have to use digi cams and capture a pic to show the parts of the app and then edit them on PC. 2X the hassle. Screenshot functionality would be just awesome and it's not something which you can have only on WP8 and not on WP7.5 because it doesn't meet requirements.
Someone in the wpcentral forum suggested adding this function to the back key task manager by putting a 'take screenshot' link to the list of open windows.
