    Camera Wrapper Exposure Problem N82 / N95

    Hello all,

    I am using the Camera Wrapper (http://www.forum.nokia.com/info/sw.n..._0_en.zip.html) to access the camera on various phones.

    But on the N82 and N95 8GB phones I have noticed some funny behaviour.
    When starting the viewfinder, the camera does not automatically adapt it's exposure setting. Or at least not all the time. It's as if the automatic exposure works for the first two-three seconds, but then it stops leaving the camera in a potentially overexposed state. The exposure does not change at all, I can cover the camera, point it to the sun, it's always the same exposure.

    As far as I've understood the documentation of CCamera::SetExposureL(), the camera starts with automatic exposure.

    Has anybody had any experience with this? Any thoughts?

    Re: Camera Wrapper Exposure Problem N82 / N95

    The problem does not happen only when starting the viewfinder for the first time.

    It also happens when I do the following steps:
    start viewfinder,
    capture snapshot,
    stop viewfinder

    and then starting the viewfinder again. After that, the camera won't adapt the exposure automatically.
