New Version Released July 12, 2004
Zire7xCamera is an extension that enables your SatForms application to
control the built in digital camera of the Palm Zire71 and Zire72
handhelds. The Zire7xCamera extension replaces the previous
Zire71Camera extension. With Zire7xCamera your application can do all of these
things without ever leaving your application:
display live viewfinder images when you slide open the camera
save photos to standard JPG files in the Zire7x's internal memory or
an expansion card when you press the camera's shutter button
view JPG photos captured by the Zire7x's digital camera or from other
sources on your application screen, at the location you specify,
scaled to the size you request, in high density (320x320 mode)
rename, copy, downsize, and delete photos
get information about photos including size in bytes, date, time,
width and height
store JPG photos in a SatForms binary field, and display JPG photos
stored in a binary field
obtain a list and details for all the photos listed in the Palm Photos
add photos you've captured to the Palm Photos database, so that they
can be synced to the desktop automatically via the Palm Photos conduit
rename and delete photos from the Palm Photos database
downsize a photo to smaller dimensions and different JPG quality
level, in order to decrease the file size
Zire7xCamera includes JPG encoding and decoding armlets (native ARM
processor code) for ultra fast operation.
JPG photos stored on expansion memory cards in the Zire7x (SD or MMC
cards) can be transferred to and from a PC directly through the use of a
card reader attached to the PC's USB port. Photos stored in the Palm's
internal memory can be synced to the desktop via the Palm Photos conduit.
