Camera Explorer shows the use of Windows Phone 8 advance photography API. This application contains three views: viewfinder, settings and preview page. Viewfinder has the option to select ISO and scene mode, settings page holds the camera configuration controls and preview page opens and display the preview image of the photo captured in the viewfinder. A comparison and implementation of the application in respect to Windows Phone 7 are provided in the project wiki.
Windows Phone 8 camera API has a high configurability of camera parameters. This new photography API allows the access of both the camera hardware and the camera API of the platform, like exposure time, ISO, focus position and white balance. To learn more about this camera API see Advance photo capturing library.
