Re: [londroid] Trouble with cameras on some phones

Hi Carl,

I have code that specifically requests the rear camera when run on gingerbread and above.

When you say that the camera is not working on your 4G do you mean at all, our just with ExpenseClam? If it's the later would your be willing to run some debug code for me to help trace the issue?

Thanks,

Colin.

There are a couple of issues with the camera. Remember that newer
phones have 2 cameras and sometimes you have to force the camera
selection before using any camera api call. I have the 4g running ICS
thought and the camera is not working (ICS branch on xda).
