One of many notable additions and upgrades in Android Lollipop, Camera 2 is a significant re-work of the Android's interface with camera devices that includes a pipelined implementation, a unified model and method for building and making still and video requests, much wider support for manual controls (on supported devices), detailed metadata at all stages, and more output options. At the same time, the Camera 2 API is significantly more complex and requires more care, coordination, and asynchronous work.

The goal of this talk is to provide a starting point for developers interested in leveraging Camera 2, providing an overview of Camera 2's structure and how to get started, examining the challenges and possibilities.
