The Camera application does not support video. If video is selected, the application will close. It is possible that the Camera application will jam to start in video mode after the first failure and close. There is a workaround for the latter problem.


The Camera application will close if Options -> New -> Video is selected. The application will report Feature Not Supported before closing.  After the first failure the Camera application may continue to report Feature Not Supported and close. There is a workaround for this issue.


To prevent the Camera application from starting in video mode and therefore closing, remove the file epoc32\winscw\c\system\shareddata\101f857a.ini.
