    My N8 does not have any additional cover, nor have I seen it with any other N8. Also any casing covers are usually not having any engines for opening them, but they work by sliding them manually.

    For any API or platform, you could check the examples available, they would show pretty well how the API works. Then also you could check API documentation to get more information on the usage.

    actually my problem is very simple : i downloaded an app which can use the front and back camera, but when i use the code of the app, front camera is nice but the back camera doesn't work

    the api i am using is : CCameraEngine, MCameraEngineObserver

    thank u so much

    So then you should debug and see what goes wrong inside the code when utilizing the back camera.

    Do you happen to use some other graphics-intensive API-s in your application (OpenGL, OpenVG, video playback perhaps)? The N8 has a finite amount of video memory, see http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...emory_handling for some discussion.
