Ubuntu Touch OTA-18 Changelog: qtubuntu-camera
As mentioned in the Ubuntu Touch OTA-18 changelog, an exposure modes to qtubuntu-camera has been added. Does this feature only apply to certain devices? I can't find it in my Oneplus 3T. Will this be added later if necessary? Thanks!
@ma OTA-18 has not yet started it's roll out so keep an eye out for the announcement.
My mistake. I thought it should have been included in today's update. Thanks for the quick support!
Not sure if it actually landed in the app since it says
qtubuntu-camerawhich I assume the backend for the camera app. And also the app is updated via the store so its changes won't most likely be included in an OTA release changelog.
Hi, ma! Thanks for your interest!
qtubuntu-camerais a piece of software that allows Qt applications to use cameras on Android devices through hybris. Adding these new values means that Qt applications can use them. It does not mean that they will start using them automatically.
There needs to be a change done to the
camera-appsoftware, which uses
qtubuntu-camera, to support the new flash and exposure modes. There is a Merge Request filed to enable more flash modes: https://gitlab.com/ubports/apps/camera-app/-/merge_requests/154. However, there is no merge request filed to enable more exposure modes. If you like, you can help us test and create these changes as needed.
