    exposure levels

    When I manually take a picture on a N95, I have 9 exposure levels (from -2 to +2 in 0.5 steps).

    The camera module only allows me four setting 'auto', 'night', 'backlight' and 'center' (and only 'night' does really make a difference).

    Is there a way to manipulate the exposure settings from python as I can manually?

    thanks

    Hi and welcome to the Discussion Board.

    Sadly there currently is no way to fine tune the exposure using Python. The only exposure settings available are returned by camera.exposure_modes() (the ones you listed).

    Hmm, what does 'currently' mean?
    Is that something I can expect in the (near) future?

    Is it possible to change the exposure levels with C++?
    Would it be possible to create an extension module with that function and call it from python?

    If you want you can make a feature request here.

    I'd say it is possible to make an extension in C++ since the native camera application has the ability to change exposure times. After all, there are many Python extensions out there that are very useful and made by the talented programmers of the community. So if you're skilled in Symbian C++, go for it

    Done

    The C++ thing will take a bit longer...
