Kamerka - take photos using your webcam and shiny animated QML interface.

Kamerka is an Qt4 app using KDE4 libraries. It uses Video4Linux to get image from
webcam and is able to save photos. Interface is based on QML and uses it's possibilities
to show easy to use animated UI.

Installation guide: https://github.com/dos1/kamerka/raw/master/INSTALL

Lots of popular distrubutions already include Kamerka in their repositories in version at least 0.8.1. If you want to quickly see how it looks like, then consult your package manager :)

 Bigger resolution?

 by H00K on: Jul 2 2011
Score 50%

Kamerka only produces very small 640x480 pictures, while I know my webcam can produce (e.g. in Cheese) a lot bigger 1600x1200 pictures.

How can I conveince Kamerka to take pictures of a bigger resolution?

You can configure resolution by hand in config file (check "man kamerka" in order to see how).

New version, with graphical configuration, is coming soon though :)

Niiiiiceeeeeee! :D

BTW, extra kudos for having proper man/info pages! I'm positively surprised!

After that I've checked Kamerka's ToDo and I'm quite impressed. Can't wait for the future releases!

I set my camera resolution to 1280x720, and it's capture correctly but your window size it compressing it, I can manually change the window size but I won't know if i'm getting the aspect ratio correct, is there a way to lock aspect ratio?

Thanks for your input! Setting default window size is already on my TODO list for next major release. I've just added locking aspect ratio to this list, thanks :)

...be developed for use as a true webcam app, and not just a 'picture' taker? We in the KDE community have wanted an alternative to Cheese for a long time.

It takes less time to take the time to do it right the first time, than it does to fix it the second time.

It will, as soon as I'll have some time for it of course. In meantime - patches are more than welcomed :)

Good work :)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
