Automatic capture of photos using Camera Stream

Hello Experts!

 

As per the official docs here (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-camera), it's mentioned;

 

Use the Stream, StreamRate, and OnStream properties to automatically capture images on a timer, for example snapping a picture every minute to create a time-lapse sequence.

 

May I know how can we achieve this? Is there any example you guys can point me to or a sample?

Well, this does not work at all. However, I have figured out a way to do this with Stream. I will be sharing a full solution soon. 

 

I don't think Camera1.Photo can do this but if you have any working sample which handles using Camera1.Photo please share.

How many frames you want to capture? 

Thanks @summitb for your response. I want to capture a picture after every 30 seconds. How do I do that?

User timer control put its duration as 30000 and repeat as true. Then onTimerEnd Collect(MyPictureStream, Camera1.Photo)

HI @ArafatTehsin 
Using Camera.Photo was a bad idea, I tried it using Stream as well. This one seems to be the best way of doing it. Recorded on how I did it. I guess you did the same way!
