One of the many new features in Lollipop, Camera 2 is a new API for image and video capture and processing. For developers, Camera 2 presents both a vastly improved, better structured API for development and an opportunity to create more sophisticated and professional image and video applications.
In this talk we will discuss the transition from the first Camera API to Camera API 2, look at how Camera 2's pipeline works, run through an example of setting up a camera and capturing images, and talk about the new data and capabilities that can be leveraged to build fully featured camera applications.
