OESF Portables Forum _ Gemini PDA - Sailfish OS _ Camera update

Posted by: vader Aug 5 2018, 05:26 PM

Hi all,

For those who hadn't noticed, PC has released some library files which fix the camera orientation (without the need to modify the qml files). You can flash a new sailfish image (ouch), or just download the zip and extract to the correct places (lib and lib64). I can confirm that they work as expected - although if you modified the qml file, you will need to revert the changes as they are no longer needed.

I was playing with the camera a bit over the weekend and have noticed a few things. It is definitely not a high quality camera smile.gif You can, however, take some very nice, clear macro shots. The big surprise is that when you digitally zoom in, the focusing gets clearer. I also got some good results from the following: zoom in, focus by tapping the screen, quickly zoom out and take the photo. You only have 5ish seconds before the focus lock disappears.

On the Gemini screen, the photos look quite good. Zooming in, or displaying on a big screen shows up the camera quality however. For scanning documents, letters etc it is actually quite good. Mine can focus only a few cms from the lens.

Enjoy.

PS. go to the support.planetcom.co.uk site, and select firmware to find the camera files.
