    Camera settings

    Hi,

    Is it possible to change the camera settings (e.g. White balance, exposure control) in Symbian 9.1 phones? E.g. as predefined function in the properties diaog of the operating system?
    If so, does Java accept these settings? E.g. if I switch off white balance in the properties dialog, does the midlet uses the switched off camera setting?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kurt

    No, this kind of functionality is not supported on S60 3rd Edition phones (Symbian 9.1 based phones)

    Thanks for reply. I thought as much.

    I think it is possible to define the camera setting in a Symbian 9.x application by means of the camera class.
    What would happen if I run such an application in the background of my mobile phone and start a midlet. Does it adopt the camera settings from the Symbian application or does it take always the initial configuration of the os?


    Thanks in advance,

    Kurt

    To my understanding (I am not 100% sure though) the Java ME implementation always sets the camera with the same values. So running a Symbian app would not do any good.

    Where could I get further information about this topic?
    For example, other mobile phone manufacturers support selecting white balance settings. Does Java take the settings from the os or does it take its own values everytime?
