- Ignores the `allowEdit` parameter.

- Ignores the `correctOrientation` parameter.

- Ignores the `cameraDirection` parameter.

- Ignores the `saveToPhotoAlbum` parameter. IMPORTANT: All images taken with the WP8/8 Cordova camera API are always copied to the phone's camera roll. Depending on the user's settings, this could also mean the image is auto-uploaded to their OneDrive. This could potentially mean the image is available to a wider audience than your app intended. If this is a blocker for your application, you will need to implement the CameraCaptureTask as [documented on MSDN][msdn_wp8_docs]. You may also comment or up-vote the related issue in the [issue tracker][wp8_bug].

- Ignores the `mediaType` property of `cameraOptions` as the Windows Phone SDK does not provide a way to choose videos from PHOTOLIBRARY.
