    Technical assistance required

    Hello all,

    I am damn new to symbian application development.
    Well I am trying to write an application which will capture a frame and return the bitmap format image on capturing which i will be processing further. I would like to first open a viewfinder which will display what camera sees and when i click on capture it should return the last frame.

    I would really appreciate if some one could guide me on how and where to start.
    who can tell me what class and API i will use. Best, give or tell me some example.

    I am working on "Series 60 3nd and 5nd Edition SDK for Symbian OS, Supporting Feature Pack 3"

    Thank You in Advance,
    Shakthi

    Although I would not suggest this particular topic as a very first application, you can get a Camera example code from this site: Resource "menu" above, then pick Code examples, select Symbian C++ as technology, and you will find some "Camera Example 3.0" there.

    Re: Technical assistance required

    The basic camera API is class CCamera, more or less unchanged for 7-8 years by now. Its basic usage is not too complex (NewL, Reserve, (ReserveComplete->)PowerOn, (PowerOnComplete->)PrepareImageCaptureL, CaptureImage, (ImageReady->)do something, you may also want StartViewFinder/BitmapsL), on the other hand it may have problem with certain features.
    When you are downloading the 3.0 example there are links to older versions, some of them use CCamera directly as I remember, without the wrapper magic.

    EDIT: check the "Info" in order to reveal the older versions (clicking on the name of the example simply downloads it)
