The Camera API allows applications to manage the camera of the device. It allows them to get information like the focus, the zoom, the white balance, the flash, … It is a priviledged API and can only be used by certified applications.

Note: Except if you are implementing a replacement for the default Camera application, you shouldn't use this API. Instead, if you want to use the camera in your device, you should use the Web Activities API.
