In this post we will take a look at how to integrate camera with our android application. There are two ways in which we can use Camera in our Android application. Android provides you with 2 options while working with Camera
1) Use an existing Camera application
2) Work with Camera hardware API directly
If you are developing a full fledged camera application, then you need to work with the Camera API directly as it gives you more control but it involves a lot more coding. If you just want to integrate the camera with your app, the first option is better and simpler. In this tutorial, we will learn how to use an existing camera app with our application. We will create a simple application that will take pictures and display the same in a ListView. The application will display a Camera button, clicking which will open the existing camera app present on the device. Once the user takes a picture, he will be redirected back to our application and the picture that he has taken will be displayed in a listview and it will be saved to a permanent location.

In this article, we will be creating a simple “Hello World” Android application. We will use the default template that Eclipse provides while creating a new android app and we will also examine the files that are created. I will give a brief overview of each step and you will get a fair idea on how you can start developing applications. To develop applications for Android, you will require the Android SDK along with the platform tools and a development environment. In this tutorial, i will be creating the application using the Eclipse IDE. To download the tools and configure your development environment, visit the Android Developer site and download the ADT bundle. Once you have all the tools installed, you are ready to proceed further. You will also need to have a basic knowledge of Java and have the latest Java SDK installed on your machine.
