RNCamera

Usage

All you need is to import { RNCamera } from the react-native-camera module and then use the <RNCamera/> tag.

'use strict';
import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { AppRegistry, StyleSheet, Text, TouchableOpacity, View } from 'react-native';
import { RNCamera } from 'react-native-camera';

class BadInstagramCloneApp extends Component {
  render() {
    return (

camera

It's the RNCamera's reference

status

One of RNCamera.Constants.CameraStatus

'READY' | 'PENDING_AUTHORIZATION' | 'NOT_AUTHORIZED'

recordAudioPermissionStatus

One of RNCamera.Constants.RecordAudioPermissionStatus.

'AUTHORIZED' | 'NOT_AUTHORIZED' | 'PENDING_AUTHORIZATION'

Properties

autoFocus

Values: RNCamera.Constants.AutoFocus.on (default) or RNCamera.Constants.AutoFocus.off

Most cameras have a Auto Focus feature. It adjusts your camera lens position automatically depending on the pixels seen by your camera.

Use the autoFocus property to specify the auto focus setting of your camera. RNCamera.Constants.AutoFocus.on turns it ON, RNCamera.Constants.AutoFocus.off turns it OFF.

autoFocusPointOfInterest

Values: Object { x: 0.5, y: 0.5 }.

Setting this property causes the auto focus feature of the camera to attempt to focus on the part of the image at this coordiate.

Coordinates values are measured as floats from 0 to 1.0. { x: 0, y: 0 } will focus on the top left of the image, { x: 1, y: 1 } will be the bottom right. Values are based on landscape mode with the home button on the right—this applies even if the device is in portrait mode.

Hint: for portrait orientation, apply 90° clockwise rotation + translation: Example

captureAudio

Values: boolean true (default) | false

Specifies if audio recording permissions should be requested. Make sure to follow README instructions for audio recording permissions here.

flashMode

Values: RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.off (default), RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.on, RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.auto or RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.torch.

Specifies the flash mode of your camera.

RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.off turns it off.

RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.on means camera will use flash in all photos taken.

RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.auto leaves your phone to decide when to use flash when taking photos, based on the lightning conditions that the camera observes.

RNCamera.Constants.FlashMode.torch turns on torch mode, meaning the flash light will be turned on all the time (even before taking photo) just like a flashlight.

focusDepth

Value: float from 0 to 1.0

Manually set camera focus. Only works with autoFocus off. The value 0 is minimum focus depth, 1 is maximum focus depth. For a medium focus depth, for example, you could use 0.5.

Android ratio

A string representing the camera ratio in the format 'height:width'. Default is "4:3".

Use getSupportedRatiosAsync method to get ratio strings supported by your camera on Android.

type

Values: RNCamera.Constants.Type.front or RNCamera.Constants.Type.back (default)

Use the type property to specify which camera to use.

whiteBalance

Values: RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.sunny, RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.cloudy, RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.shadow, RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.incandescent, RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.fluorescent or RNCamera.Constants.WhiteBalance.auto (default)

A camera’s white balance setting allows you to control the color temperature in your photos by cooling down or warming up the colors.

The idea is that you select the appropriate white balance setting for the type of light that you’re shooting in, and then your camera automatically adjusts the colors to eliminate any warm or cool color casts from your light source.

Use the whiteBalance property to specify which white balance setting the camera should use.

zoom

Value: float from 0 to 1.0

Specifies the zoom of your camera. The value 0 is no zoom, 1 is maximum zoom. For a medium zoom, for example, you could pass 0.5.

Android permissionDialogTitle - Deprecated

Starting on android M individual permissions must be granted for certain services, the camera is one of them, you can use this to change the title of the dialog prompt requesting permissions.

Android permissionDialogMessage - Deprecated

Starting on android M individual permissions must be granted for certain services, the camera is one of them, you can use this to change the content of the dialog prompt requesting permissions.

Android androidRecordAudioPermissionOptions

Configuration options for permissions request for recording audio. It will be passed as rationale parameter to PermissionsAndroid.request. This replaces and deprecates old permissionDialogTitle and permissionDialogMessage parameters.

Android androidCameraPermissionOptions

Configuration options for permissions request for camera. It will be passed as rationale parameter to PermissionsAndroid.request. This replaces and deprecates old permissionDialogTitle and permissionDialogMessage parameters.

notAuthorizedView

By default a Camera not authorized message will be displayed when access to the camera has been denied, if set displays the passed react element instead of the default one.

pendingAuthorizationView

By default a will be displayed while the component is waiting for the user to grant/deny access to the camera, if set displays the passed react element instead of the default one.

Component instance methods

takePictureAsync([options]): Promise

Takes a picture, saves in your app's cache directory and returns a promise.

Supported options:

  • width (integer). This property allows to specify the width that the returned image should have, image ratio will not be affected. If no value is specified the maximum image size is used (capture may take longer).

  • quality (float between 0 to 1.0). This property is used to compress the output jpeg file with 1 meaning no jpeg compression will be applied. If no value is specified quality:1 is used.

  • base64 (boolean true or false) Use this with true if you want a base64 representation of the picture taken on the return data of your promise. If no value is specified base64:false is used.

  • mirrorImage (boolean true or false). Use this with true if you want the resulting rendered picture to be mirrored (inverted in the vertical axis). If no value is specified mirrorImage:false is used.

  • exif (boolean true or false) Use this with true if you want a exif data map of the picture taken on the return data of your promise. If no value is specified exif:false is used.

  • fixOrientation (android only, boolean true or false) Use this with true if you want to fix incorrect image orientation (can take up to 5 seconds on some devices). Do not provide this if you only need EXIF based orientation.

  • skipProcessing (android only, boolean). This property skips all image processing on android, this makes taking photos super fast, but you loose some of the information, width, height and the ability to do some processing on the image (base64, width, quality, mirrorImage, exif, etc)

  • doNotSave (boolean true or false). Use this with true if you do not want the picture to be saved as a file to cache. If no value is specified doNotSave:false is used. If you only need the base64 for the image, you can use this with base64:true and avoid having to save the file.

  • pauseAfterCapture (boolean true or false). If true, pause the preview layer immediately after capturing the image. You will need to call cameraRef.resumePreview() before using the camera again. If no value is specified pauseAfterCapture:false is used.

  • orientation (string or number). Specifies the orientation that us used for taking the picture. Possible values: "portrait", "portraitUpsideDown", "landscapeLeft" or "landscapeRight".

The promise will be fulfilled with an object with some of the following properties:

  • mute (any value). (This value will automatically be set to true if the captureAudio has not been passed to the Camera component) If this flag is given in the option with any value, the video to be recorded will be mute. If nothing is specified, video will NOT be muted. Note: The recommended way of recording audio without sound passing captureAudio: false to the Camera component. The mute parameter is likely to become deprecated in the near future.

  • path (file path on disk). Specifies the path on disk to record the video to. You can use the same uri returned to continue recording across start/stops

iOS isRecording(): Promise<boolean>

iOS only. Returns a promise. The promise will be fulfilled with a boolean indicating if currently recording is started or stopped.

Subviews

This component supports subviews, so if you wish to use the camera view as a background or if you want to layout buttons/images/etc. inside the camera then you can do that.

Example subview:

react-native-barcode-mask

A Barcode and QR code UI mask which can be use to render a scanning layout on camera with customizable styling.

Read more about react-native-barcode-mask here.

Testing

To learn about how to test components which uses RNCamera check its documentation about testing.

Examples

To see more of the RNCamera in action you can check out the RNCamera examples directory. Firebase MLKit-base features (such as Text, Face and Barcode detection) can be found in the mlkit example.

Open Collective

We are just beginning a funding campaign for react-native-camera. Contributions are greatly appreciated. When we gain more than $250 we will begin distributing funds to core maintainers in a fully transparent manner.
