The tutorials in this section show you how to use the Camera API.

The Camera API allows your application to use the device camera to capture still images and video clips, and store them in the internal memory or on removable media. You can implement applications that make use of the camera to capture images, record videos, or use the display as a viewfinder. To capture images or to record videos, you need a combination of Symbian APIs and classes, and device-specific components.

Note: The functionality that can be obtained through the Camera API is hardware dependent. The API includes functions you can call to check if functionality is available before using it.
