View Full Version : Use of Camera API without showing viewfinder??

Sep 17, 2012, 09:57 PM
Would it be possible to create an app that records and stores photos from the iPad camera without showing the "viewfinder" during capture?

Specifically, I would like to create an app that takes photos when the volume up button is pressed while the entire screen just plays a random slideshow of images captured during that particular "session" of the app.

I'm assuming this functionality is either really easy or really hard, but I'm having a hard time tracking down an answer.
