Camera Explorer application demonstrates the use of the new advanced Windows Phone 8 camera API, the Windows.Phone.Media.Capture.PhotoCaptureDevice and the related classes and enumerations on Nokia Lumia devices.
The application contains a viewfinder page, a settings page, and a preview page. Viewfinder page has some of the settings, like ISO and scene mode, overlaid on it. Settings page has sliders and a select-one type of control for configuring the camera. Preview page is opened when a photo is captured in the viewfinder in order to display the captured photo right away. The application includes tap-to-focus and Lens Picker integration. Version 1.3 adds these features: compatibility with devices without front camera, half-pressing camera key to reactivate auto-focus after tap-to-focus, settings (for each sensor) are now set to be persistent, and many other fixes and improvements.
The example has been tested to work on Nokia Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8.
