How can I capture the 2nd camera on a mobile phone with 2 cameras? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    Some mobile phones have two cameras, such as HTC Touch Diamond.   Using HTC Touch Diamond, I can capture videos from the camera on the back of the monitor screen.

    However, there's another camera on the top right of the monitor screen.   How can I do to capture the videos from this camera?

    I use Windows Mobile SDK 6.

    Please help & thank you very much.

  • There's no Windows Mobile API for selecting a camera. As such it is up to the OEM to implement such functionality in the way that they see fit.  And it seems that most OEMs don't share interfaces to that implementation.  To date Samsung is the only OEM that has provided interfaces for such a thing.

    It takes all the running you can do to stay in one place.If you want to get somewhere else,you must try to run at least twice as fast as that.
