I'm starting a project that use the camera for image analyse. I have to use some specific parameters to be sure that the camera will "see" what I need in my picture.
For Now I just tried to take some pictures with the onboard camera application. Here is the configuration I need :
Exposition 1.5 or 1.7
AT : close-up
Flash : off
White balance : sunny
Colour tone : normal
I just take a look at the api, and I'm not sure that I can use set all of thoses parameters with the public api. Specialy about the Exposition. Apparently there is only specifics presets. So I have some question about some presets
EExposureNight: I'm not sure this will works with my needs, I only did a quick test on N95, and when the preset night was selected the autofocus wasn't working. Is that only a problem of this device ? Or I can except it to works fine on other devices ?
EExposureManual and EExposureProgram : I'm not sure about how to use thoses ones. I presume manual refer to the user prefenced stored in the camera configuration in the editable settings ? and exposureProgram refer to a not public api ? Is that possible to request a api partnering with nokia to access this kind of api If the exposureNight don't fill my needs ?
EExposureInfra : Is there some device with a infrared camera ? It could be interesting to know about this.
In the case I cannot use the api to analyse my picture, is there any option to launch the native camera application for a "one shot" picture with the specified settings i need, and once the picture is done, automaticaly return my application and get the full path of the new picture ? (like the SHCameraCapture on WM ? )
