BV6000 support for Camera2 API

Postby Isoggi » Thu Sep 28, 2017 7:35 am

Hi
Just want to make sure, are BV6000 hardware capable for Camera2 API (manual focus, WB, ISO, shutter speed & RAW support)?
Because, judging from P10 and OmniVision datasheet, it's seems capable.

Or, any development toward update for firmware?

The Camera2 API is an Android interface that was first provided with Lollipop.

I ran a check on my BV6000 using the Weiss Camera2 probe:

The 6000 has legacy hardware level support, which lacks new features provided by Camera2 and does not provide full implementation. Some of the features it lacks are RAW support, manual exposure, white balance off, and autofocus EDOF. It does support manual focus and some of the features listed in the first post.

I will forward this to our developers but it would mean big change in a good working camera firmware.

If it is not Camera2, in 2017, then it is not good working. :)

Supporting the features of OpenCamera would be great. It is such a great camera app, but every time one uses it with the BV600, one gets disappointed by some features just doing nothing.
