The collodion wet plate process that gradually replaced the daguerreotype during the 1850s required photographers to coat and sensitize thin glass or iron plates shortly before use and expose them in the camera while still wet. On desktop computers, autofocus behavior is dependent on the camera driver and settings. The Google Pixel – which may have the best smartphone camera – has a slightly bigger 12.3MP 1/2.3in sensor and an f/2.0 lens. I forced the lens in, and now when I turn the camera on it makes a buzzing and clickin sound, and what i see through the camera is very blurry.
After gently but firmly tapping the A/V out corner of the camera 4 or 5 times it works like a charm again. At first i thought it was a shutter malfunction because the image previewer worked fine and the audio still worked but the display when pointing the camera was black.
Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The timerHandler() method is displayed and updates a number of properties of the Camera object.
Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. The Camera.getCamera() method returns a reference to a camera object, or returns null if no camera is available or installed. This is thanks to the simple and robust camera app, which also enables the shooting of Live Photos – pictures that can also be viewed as short videos.
I guess it’s because I have a silicone covering for the camera that while it protects it from scratches, it doesn’t help with the dust particles. Covering the film also facilitates removing the lens from a loaded camera (many SLRs have interchangeable lenses).
