Oct 2, 2010

I've been running CM6 for awhile now and I love it. My only problem so far is that I absolutely hate the camera application. I much, much preferred the Sense take on it; so, I'm sitting here, wondering if there's a good camera application to replace the crap stock one.

Android :: Using Camera To Take Pictures From My Application

Jan 7, 2010

I've been trying to write an application that uses the Camera App to take a picture. So far, the only thing I've been able to get back successfully is a tiny bitmap picture. I've found several other posts related to this topic that have code that is reported to work, but it does not work for me. I'm hoping someone can steer me in the right direction. Below is the code I am using currently, but it causes the application to blow up.

private void takePicture(final int x, final int y, String description) {
// create a file on the SD card
File file = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory(),
"tmp_" + String.valueOf(System.currentTimeMillis()) + ".jpg");
// Create the URI that tells the camera where to put the picture.
mOutputFileUri = Uri.fromFile(file);
statusLine.setText("URI => " + mOutputFileUri);
mIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE)
.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, mOutputFileUri)
.putExtra(PIC_X, x) // x coordinate of square
.putExtra(PIC_Y, y) // y coordinate of square
.putExtra(PIC_DESCRIP,description)
.putExtra("return-data", true) ;
startActivityForResult(mIntent, PIC_FROM_CAMERA);
}

Ultimately, I want to be able to get the picture back and do two things with it: create a 64x64 icon that is displayed by the Android application, and upload the picture to a web application. I'm running this on the emulator using Android 2.0

Android :: Compile Camera Application For SDK 1.6

Aug 18, 2010

I am trying to compile and run the Android Camera for sdk 1.6 (also called API level 4 or Donut release). While there is no minSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest, it clearly does not run on a donut device. In fact, if compiled with sdk 2.2 the camera will crash with a NoSuchMethodError execption on an avd or a G1 with sdk 1.6. I tried also checking out the [donut-release] tag, but, strangely, it won't even compile giving many errors like:

[javac] /home/mrucci/camtest2/src/com/android/camera/ImageManager.java:41: cannot find symbol
[javac] symbol : class DrmStore
[javac] location: package android.provider
[javac] import android.provider.DrmStore;

In particular, I really do not understand why ExifInterface is used in the "donut" tag when it has been introduced since API level 5.

Android :: Camera Zoom FX Application?

I've been using FXCamera for a few weeks now it takes great pictures on my phone, with cool effects like fisheye and the warholizer. FxCamera. Just noticed that android slide has released a version of their Camera ZOOM FX application which has 40 photo FX, geotagging and obviously zoom which I can't do at the moment in FXCamera. Camera ZOOM FX. Just wondering if anyone had a chance to look at either of these apps and which they think is best, because I've been hoping for some new effects for a while and the android slide app sounds worth a look.

Android :: UI Window In Camera Preview Application

Nov 27, 2009

Let's say in my example I am working with SurfaceView for my CameraSurfaceView. I have a few questions, hope you can help me.

1. When this SurfaceView gets created (I assume via final CameraSurfaceView cameraView = new CameraSurfaceView (getApplicationContext()), this will result in a call createSurface() in SurfaceFlinger with format, width and height. Am I correct?
Is this SurfaceView also my UI window if I want to draw anything? I thought if I call setType(PUSH_BUFFER) on this surface, I won't be able to do any drawing on this surface.

2. How does the application pass these information like format, width and height to SurfaceFlinger for the allocation? Is it by using .setFormat, .setFixedSize?

3. How do they methods .setFormat, .setFixedSize related to the surfaceHolder.surfaceChanged() callback?

Android :: Best Way To Store Application Images Taken Via Camera

May 5, 2010

I'm just looking for some insight into what would be the best way for me to store images as part of my app. I have an activity that represents a 'Job' which has a couple of edittext's and underneath was planning on using the Gallery component to show images relevant to this job. The job data is stored in a database (on the sdcard) so was also thinking of creating a table to store 'JobImages' and having each image stored as a byte array.

But I'm not sure if it would be better to store the images directly on sdcard under a folder structure specific to my application and the job. E.g. using the job ID number as a folder name. Depending on which method I use will greatly determine the code that goes into an 'adapter' that allows me to bind to the gallery component so before I begin I was wondering if anyone has had the same design problem and what option they chose.

Android :: Camera Flash In 1.5 And 1.6 - Application Crashes

May 21, 2010

My app is using the camera on the phone. For phones w/ 2.0+ I have been able to activate the Flash. When I test on a phone with 1.5 OS on it the app crashes. I get: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException and the Cause is java.lang.VerifyError: fishers.Nav.TakePicture$1
I assume because you have to access the flash differently in apps below 2.0? Can anyone give me some advice or links to examples showing how I could make it work over the whole range of Operating System version or is that just not at all do-able?

Android :: Application For Using Camera Flash For Notifications?

Apr 25, 2010

Being relatively new to my Droid, I'm still finding fun stuff. Recently, I picked up the shell/holster combo and really like it. However, while I am at work, I have my phone on vibrate (thanks Timeriffic) and can't tell who is texting/emailing me like I used to (different colors for the LED, thanks Handcent). What I was wondering is: is it possible to write an app that uses the camera flash like a vibrate function.

The ability to customize the number of flashes and duration would be cool, as would the ability to have it only flash when the phone is on vibrate or silent. Preferably, without having to root the phone. If its not possible due to hardware or software lockouts oh well.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Camera Responsiveness / Way To Fix Application?

Eight Issue Camera responsiveness, is there a way to fix this app or will it be glitch until the update and/or even after the update? Is it just my phone or every time I attempt to take a picture it takes quite sometime after I take the picture the actual moment the picture is captured? not to mention the lag between pictures, the lack of burst mode, and another thing that is quite annoying why does the image in the camera gets so DARK when you press the camera button to focus? the image on the screen should represent the actual photo your capturing not some dark version of it one or two seconds after you click/touch the screen to capture the picture.

Android :: Cropping In Camera Application And Photo Location

Oct 26, 2009

I have not noticed this posted yet so just adding here for those that have not found it. The new camera/video/gallery application supports cropping. After taking a photo or viewing in the gallery, press the Menu button and Crop. You can resize the crop box by touching the edges or move it by touching in the center. Using this feature I was able to create and share panoramic images that were much more interesting. Clicking Menu and then More reveals the "Show on Map" command which displays the location the photo was taken.

Android :: Camera Preview Application - Buffer Allocation?

Nov 21, 2009

I have some questions regarding the code below for camera preview application.

1. How does surfaceCreated() and CreateSurface() relate? Is this surface created via createSurface() from SurfaceFlinger client to SurfaceFlinger server? If so, there must be 2 buffers (frame buffers from display driver if there is how acceleration or if it is the emulator, it will be from ashmem) associated with this surface: surface BB (for composition) and surface FB (for display).

2. How does the rendering buffer (frame buffer BB and frame buffer FB) get allocated in the camera preview application? Are they allocated by the application?

3. How does this surface relate to the preview buffers? Are the preview buffers allocated by the Camera Service during startPreview?

private class CameraSurfaceView extends SurfaceView implements SurfaceHolder.Callback {
private SurfaceHolder mHolder; private Camera camera = null;
public CameraSurfaceView(Context context) { super(context);
mHolder = getHolder(); mHolder.addCallback(this);
mHolder.setType(SurfaceHolder.SURFACE_TYPE_PUSH_BUFFERS);
} public void surfaceCreated(SurfaceHolder holder) {
camera = Camera.open(); try {
camera.setPreviewDisplay(mHolder);
} catch (Exception e) { Log.e("Camera", "Failed to set camera preview display", e);
} } }

Does it make good photos or rather bad? 4.Could you give me some sample photos made using the phones camera? 5.When does the phone start to be laggy, and how to prevent it? 6.I've heard about rooting the phone and is it 100% safe?

Android :: Camera Application With Compass Direction Overlay?

Jul 12, 2010

I'm a bit new to Android but after searching on the Market, the web and this forum, I can't seem to find anything like this but I feel like it has to exist (or hopefully will soon). I'm looking for a camera application that can place the current compass direction on the image (and stamp the saved image with the direction). The tilt of the phone would be cool to have, too, but just the compass would be great. I did find an application that shows the compass direction on over top of a feed from the camera ("Reality + Compass" by Udell Enterprises).

I want something just like this, but with the ability to save the image. In case you're wondering, I'd like to use this for bettering the storm spotting community. A problem when people send in images of clouds/storms/tornadoes/etc is that you never know (1) where the picture was taken and (2) in what direction. Ideally GPS location could be added, too, but for now I just want the compass. (Other image services can handle the location part fine, like Twitter for Android/Twitpic.)

(I'm on the HTC Aria, but I can sideload apps now thanks to the new version of HTC Sync.)

HTC Desire :: Camera Application To Shoot High Speed Videos?

I like all those high speed camera shoots and i was thinking if would it be possible to make an app to use the camera to shoot high speed videos. I am not thinking like professional high speed video (those go up to millions of fps) but more like up to 1000 or 500. The desire should be able to shoot hd 720p video (lets hope with the next update) and may be would be possible to to make lower resolution high speed videos.
