Camera app

Working with camera sensors on a mobile device is one one side a challenge, because if you're not careful you can eat all the system's re­sources pretty quickly, and the performance will suck.

On the other hand (as opposed to USB webcams or IP cameras) you get direct access to the sensor's con­troller registers and you have a free hand in configuring the sensor for whatever purpose you like. There's no controller in the middle standing between you and the sensor preventing you from doing advanced (or crazy) stuff, like using crap sensor for a webcam for raw, or long exposure photography, or making a multi exposure HDR photos.


I'm working on the support of some of these usecases using PinePhone cameras. Here are some of my work in progress videos in reverse chronologi­cal order:
