When I shoot photos with my main camera it works fine. But when I switch to video mode it says the app can’t establish a connection with the camera.
I already let it repair by my provider and been told they replaced the device, but the new phone got the same problem. Thus I think it could be a software problem.
One more detail: The picture and videos shot with my front cam are upside down.
Details about my device: FP2-XCVR, Fairphone OS 18.09.2 (Andoid 7.1.2), main cam 8MP OV8865, front cam 5MP OV5670
To see whether it’s hardware or software, please try with Open Camera for comparison.
Thanks for the hint. With Open Camera everything works fine, so I can use the camera by now! So the problem should be with the Google camera app.
Had the same and I found out that decreasing the video quality from 1080p to 720p in the settings resolves things without resorting to third-party apps.
For the record, I have the “old” camera.
