In order to combat the pipeline latency, partial results may be delivered to the application layer from the camera device as soon as they are available.

Optional; defaults to 1. A value of 1 means that partial results are not supported, and only the final TotalCaptureResult will be produced by the camera device.

A typical use case for this might be: after requesting an auto-focus (AF) lock the new AF state might be available 50% of the way through the pipeline. The camera device could then immediately dispatch this state via a partial result to the application, and the rest of the metadata via later partial results.

Range of valid values:
>= 1

Optional - This value may be null on some devices.

public static final Key<Byte> REQUEST_PIPELINE_MAX_DEPTH

Added in API level 21

Specifies the number of maximum pipeline stages a frame has to go through from when it's exposed to when it's available to the framework.

A typical minimum value for this is 2 (one stage to expose, one stage to readout) from the sensor. The ISP then usually adds its own stages to do custom HW processing. Further stages may be added by SW processing.

Depending on what settings are used (e.g. YUV, JPEG) and what processing is enabled (e.g. face detection), the actual pipeline depth (specified by android.request.pipelineDepth) may be less than the max pipeline depth.

A pipeline depth of X stages is equivalent to a pipeline latency of X frame intervals.

This value will be 8 or less.

This key is available on all devices.

public static final Key<Float> SCALER_AVAILABLE_MAX_DIGITAL_ZOOM

Added in API level 21

The maximum ratio between both active area width and crop region width, and active area height and crop region height, for android.scaler.cropRegion.

This represents the maximum amount of zooming possible by the camera device, or equivalently, the minimum cropping window size.

Crop regions that have a width or height that is smaller than this ratio allows will be rounded up to the minimum allowed size by the camera device.

Units: Zoom scale factor

Range of valid values:
>=1

This key is available on all devices.

public static final Key<Integer> SCALER_CROPPING_TYPE

Added in API level 21

The crop type that this camera device supports.

When passing a non-centered crop region (android.scaler.cropRegion) to a camera device that only supports CENTER_ONLY cropping, the camera device will move the crop region to the center of the sensor active array (android.sensor.info.activeArraySize) and keep the crop region width and height unchanged. The camera device will return the final used crop region in metadata result android.scaler.cropRegion.

Camera devices that support FREEFORM cropping will support any crop region that is inside of the active array. The camera device will apply the same crop region and return the final used crop region in capture result metadata android.scaler.cropRegion.

FULL capability devices (android.info.supportedHardwareLevel == FULL) will support FREEFORM cropping. LEGACY capability devices will only support CENTER_ONLY cropping.

Possible values:

This key is available on all devices.

public static final Key<StreamConfigurationMap> SCALER_STREAM_CONFIGURATION_MAP

Added in API level 21

The available stream configurations that this camera device supports; also includes the minimum frame durations and the stall durations for each format/size combination.

All camera devices will support sensor maximum resolution (defined by android.sensor.info.activeArraySize) for the JPEG format.

For a given use case, the actual maximum supported resolution may be lower than what is listed here, depending on the destination Surface for the image data. For example, for recording video, the video encoder chosen may have a maximum size limit (e.g. 1080p) smaller than what the camera (e.g. maximum resolution is 3264x2448) can provide.

Please reference the documentation for the image data destination to check if it limits the maximum size for image data.

The following table describes the minimum required output stream configurations based on the hardware level (android.info.supportedHardwareLevel):

Format Size Hardware Level Notes
JPEG android.sensor.info.activeArraySize Any
JPEG 1920x1080 (1080p) Any if 1080p <= activeArraySize
JPEG 1280x720 (720) Any if 720p <= activeArraySize
JPEG 640x480 (480p) Any if 480p <= activeArraySize
JPEG 320x240 (240p) Any if 240p <= activeArraySize
YUV_420_888 all output sizes available for JPEG FULL
YUV_420_888 all output sizes available for JPEG, up to the maximum video size LIMITED

public static final Key<Rect> SENSOR_INFO_ACTIVE_ARRAY_SIZE

Added in API level 21

The area of the image sensor which corresponds to active pixels.

This is the region of the sensor that actually receives light from the scene. Therefore, the size of this region determines the maximum field of view and the maximum number of pixels that an image from this sensor can contain.

The rectangle is defined in terms of the full pixel array; (0,0) is the top-left of the full pixel array, and the size of the full pixel array is given by android.sensor.info.pixelArraySize.

public static final Key<Integer> STATISTICS_INFO_MAX_FACE_COUNT

Added in API level 21

The maximum number of simultaneously detectable faces.

0 for cameras without available face detection; otherwise: >=4 for LIMITED or FULL hwlevel devices or >0 for LEGACY devices.

This key is available on all devices.

public static final Key<Integer> SYNC_MAX_LATENCY

Added in API level 21

The maximum number of frames that can occur after a request (different than the previous) has been submitted, and before the result's state becomes synchronized (by setting android.sync.frameNumber to a non-negative value).

This defines the maximum distance (in number of metadata results), between android.sync.frameNumber and the equivalent frame number for that result.

In other words this acts as an upper boundary for how many frames must occur before the camera device knows for a fact that the new submitted camera settings have been applied in outgoing frames.

For example if the distance was 2,

initial request = X (repeating)
 request1 = X
 request2 = Y
 request3 = Y
 request4 = Y

 where requestN has frameNumber N, and the first of the repeating
 initial request's has frameNumber F (and F < 1).

 initial result = X' + { android.sync.frameNumber == F }
 result1 = X' + { android.sync.frameNumber == F }
 result2 = X' + { android.sync.frameNumber == CONVERGING }
 result3 = X' + { android.sync.frameNumber == CONVERGING }
 result4 = X' + { android.sync.frameNumber == 2 }

 where resultN has frameNumber N.
 

Since result4 has a frameNumber == 4 and android.sync.frameNumber == 2, the distance is clearly 4 - 2 = 2.

Units: Frame counts

Available values for this device:
A positive value, PER_FRAME_CONTROL, or UNKNOWN.

This key is available on all devices.

If the actual number of points provided by the application (in android.tonemap.curve*) is less than this maximum, the camera device will resample the curve to its internal representation, using linear interpolation.

The output curves in the result metadata may have a different number of points than the input curves, and will represent the actual hardware curves used as closely as possible when linearly interpolated.

Optional - This value may be null on some devices.

Full capability - Present on all camera devices that report being HARDWARE_LEVEL_FULL devices in the android.info.supportedHardwareLevel key
