    first, call CNewFileServiceClient for taking picture.
    then, start a AO to 10 sec auto taking.

    here is little resource for reference.

    // clicking photographs in the background

    If you want to take pictures without starting viewfinder, then you should use ECam API (or maybe the Camera Application Engine API can also be used). See the examples provided by Forum Nokia, you can try to remove the "StartViewFinderL" calls to disable the viewfinder.

    "S60 Platform: Camera Example"

    Note: camera can not do auto focus without viewfinder.
