    Thumbs down Camera display mode

    I'm testing a camera app in N93i.

    When I call

    TDisplayMode displayMode = CEikonEnv::Static()->WsSession().GetDefModeMaxNumColors(color, gray);

    I suppose it return the max number color of the phone support. In my case it return

    My question is :
    I don't want to use "EColor16MU", I want to use even smaller color like "EColor64K".
    I'm actually using

    iDisplayMode = EColor64K;
    iColorDepth = CCamera::EFormatFbsBitmapColor64K;

    for my application. It is working fine in N93i so far.
    1. I'm just wondering if there will be any side-effect if I don't use the displayMode return from WsSession().GetDefModeMaxNumColors?

    2. Is EColor64K and EFormatFbsBitmapColor64K working with all S60 3rd phone?

    I'm appreciated if you can give me any advise.

    Re: Camera display mode

    As far as I know it should be fine for you to use whatever mode you want internally in your application.
    This is not optimal though as there will have to be a conversion to screen display mode when you blit your image data through
    BitGDI. Still, if you do not though this more than once per frame, it should not kill you.

    Also note that default mode is one thing, but the current mode (reported by CWsScreenDevice:isplayMode) might be an other one.
