Overview of camera options
In order to use a digital camera with ArcPad, you must first select the appropriate driver for the camera. The drop-down list on the Camera page in the ArcPad Options dialog box only displays supported cameras for your mobile device.
All other options on this tab apply specifically to standalone photos, not photos taken as an attribute to a feature.
You can set the following camera options:
- Default path for standalone photos captured with the camera tool.
- Prefix, and date/time suffix, for the output image file when using the Camera tool to capture photos that are not associated with a feature.
- Picture quality for the output JPEG photo files. The slider ranges from a quality of 50% to 100%. Higher picture quality settings use less compression for the output JPEG photo file.
- Hardware button to launch the camera tool. This button is specific for each device.
The hardware button labels and assignments vary across devices. On Windows Mobile devices, you can view and change the button labels and assignments by tapping Settings, Personal, and then Buttons.
Refer to the Camera topic for a full explanation of the Camera tab of the ArcPad Options dialog box.
