Set Camera quality

Default bit-rates seem really low at the moment.

For example on Jolla the file sizes are under half in both photos and videos as on some other 8Mpx and 1080p cameras. This compression is visible.

An side-by-side test video on an S3 1920x1080 had 17033.3 kbps and Jolla with 1920x1088 only 7059.8 kbps.

  1. Will there be a way to set these in the future and is there currently some command line way of tweaking these settings?
  2. Can android apps access the camera sensor directly or are they limited by Sailfish settings?
  3. Can RAW images be made available?
  4. Does Jolla have an optical image stabilizer and/or separate image processor?

    • No (expect for the Settings>Apps>Camera where you can set the ratio), but this idea might be worth a separate, new question
  2. Can android apps access the camera sensor directly or are they limited by Sailfish settings?
    • You can install any Android camera app, they all should have access to the camera hw
  3. Can RAW images be made available?
  4. Does Jolla have an optical image stabilizer and/or separate image processor?

This doesn't answer all questions, but you can kind of set camera quality:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Go to Applications -> Camera.

There you can change settings separately for front and rear camera. Note that by default rear camera uses only 6 Mpx as it is set 16:9. To use 8 Mpx you need to set proportions to 4:3.

I saw that, but that is not really a "quality" but aspect ratio setting, which is distinct. 16:9 just crops the image from the bottom and top where 4:3 crops the image less. I guess 16:9 is the default as it fills the screen nicely.
