change to use arbitrary camera devices shall be trivial - just don't complain about "lens slider closed" when using /dev/video0 instead of /dev/video1 ;-D ...and forget about focus.

I'd like a button to easily change between camera and video modes because It takes too long after accidentally recording a video when I was supposed to take a photo or vice versa.

one very important (IMHO) request: get a decent API (dbus or whatever) to integrate functions to camera and to integrate camera into other apps. Along same line: make sure you can *invoke* camera in arbitrary modes, I.E. have a desktop shortcut / shell cmd to start in video mode, and another to start in still pict mode.

It's been discussed ad nauseum to make flashlight switch on immediately on opening cam slider (and popping up a menu with "start photo cam" / "start video cam" / "config this menu, and flashlight brightness" buttons - maybe also dependent on accelerometer and/or ALS)
Paparazzi mode: Start video immediately on opening slider.

camera-ui2 seems to not only be using 10% of my memory but 40-50% CPU constantly

nohup ~/bin/camera-ui2 > /dev/null&

i know im doing it wrong but not nohupping it doesnt let it continue running after i quit the terminal

what exactly do I have to do to get this running normally?

Would be awesome to have 720p video record or possibility to change video resolutions to save space or higher res. And 30fps is needed. =)

Using the front camera is difficult (impossible).
The camera api I use (gdigicam) doesnt
work with the front camera AFAIK.
