Can I get to the original raw data of a snapshot (i.e. bitmap 640x480, 24 bit true colors) ??
I tried the Snapshot example, and by looking at the data I think I get a JFIF converted bitmap, and not the original source data (as if the camera itself is producing the jfif format, and the OS converts it to the bitmap format).
Yes, you can. When calling RCameraServ::GetImage(), a reference to a bitmap is passed to it. On return (after asynchronous operation is completed), it contains the uncompressed bitmap data of the image taken. The conversion to jpeg is not done by the camera server, but with a media server image converter utility (CMdaImageBitmapToFileUtility).
