This sample demonstrates using the Camera2 API to capture a JPEG and RAW sensor frame. Check the source code to see a typical example of how to display the camera preview; run auto-focus, auto-exposure metering, and auto-white-balance; capture a JPEG and RAW image for the same sensor frame; and save these into MediaStore for use in other applications.
The Camera2 API allows users to capture RAW images, i.e. unprocessed pixel data directly from the camera sensor that has not yet been converted into a format and colorspace typically used for displaying and storing images viewed by humans. The DngCreator class is provided as part of the Camera2 API as a utility for saving RAW images as DNG files.
This sample displays a live camera preview in a TextureView, and saves JPEG and DNG file for each image captured.
This sample uses the Gradle build system. To build this project, use the "gradlew build" command or use "Import Project" in Android Studio.
