I would like my Android app to give the user the ability to capture multiple photos at once.

Currently, from what I can tell, Android does not support this behavior natively, and an INTENT_ACTION_STILL_IMAGE_CAMERA along with a ContentObserver is not reliable enough in my situation.

Can you please recommend me of a third-party library which supports capturing multiple photos at once?

By "at once" I mean - without having to create an Intent and startActivityForResult() for capturing each photo.


I ended up writing my own CameraActivity, by customizing Camera2Basic example by Google.

  • Is it possible to see the code? Thanks in advance – alcor Apr 1 '16 at 10:05
  • @alcor Sorry, but It is a part of an application which I sell to a company. Did you check Camera2Basic? – Rany Albeg Wein Apr 1 '16 at 10:09
  • I see, thank anyway :) Yes, of course. I already wrote something to solve the same problem, but I wanted to have a double check :) Have a nice day! – alcor Apr 1 '16 at 10:14
  • @alcor You too :-) Thanks! – Rany Albeg Wein Apr 1 '16 at 10:17
