Hello,
first of all, thanks for the good work.
I'm using it on Nokia N70 and Ubuntu 9.04 with kernel 2.6.28-14-generic.It's working quite well.
I've only one issue.
When I'm using the Main Camera, the Flash light is always on.If I use the front camera no.
Is it possible to insert a new configuration parameter in order to set if the Flash Light on/off when using the main camera?
Thanks a lot.
Claudio

PS: the smartcam java version is not working, always asks me to grant the process to use multimedia, sound .... (but I don't care, I use the symbian one)

  • I had the same problem with the red light...

     
  • I'm not sure you can deactivate that, when the camera is on in video mode the light is on I never saw a soft that could turn it off, even the "flashlight" type of programs just turn on the camera without displaying the picture to get the light on. (you hear the focus coil when it starts).
    I guess it's a firmware "limitation", maybe even hardware.
