/// This component tests getting the latest camera image

/// it displays the image on the screen as a RawImage
/// and also displays information about the image.
/// This is useful for computer vision applications where
/// you need to access the raw pixels from camera image
/// on the CPU.
/// This is different from the ARCameraBackground component, which
/// efficiently displays the camera image on the screen. If you
/// just want to blit the camera texture to the screen, use
/// the ARCameraBackground, or use Graphics.Blit to create
/// a GPU-friendly RenderTexture.
/// In this example, we get the camera image data on the CPU,
/// convert it to an RGBA format, then display it on the screen
/// as a RawImage texture to demonstrate it is working.
/// This is done as an example; do not use this technique simply
/// to render the camera image on screen.
