How to reproduce

Using Advanced Settings API requires that the CCamera instance has been constructed with New2L() to enable all events from the camera hardware.

 // Use camera index 0 (main camera)  
iCamera = CCamera::New2L( *this, 0, 0 );
iAdvancedSettings = CCamera::CCameraAdvancedSettings::NewL( *iCamera );
// Try setting focus range to macro
iAdvancedSettings->SetFocusRange( CCamera::CCameraAdvancedSettings::EFocusRangeMacro );

The above code results in KErrNotSupported on the Nokia N96.


No solution available. S60 Platform: Camera Example demonstrates how to use a wrapper DLL that provides a unified interface for various Symbian and S60 camera APIs, enabling the development of camera applications that support all S60 3rd Edition devices.
